How about going barefoot?

Have you already heard about Lagoinha do Leste?

Well, for me the answer was no.

See, when I decided to travel to South America I didn’t want to be bothered with a travel guide book. Simply because I’ll get frustrated with all the things I haven’t had the time or the money to do.

I’ve been to Floripa because I met that Australian girl in São Paulo who wanted to go there before heading to Iguazu falls. And since I wanted to go to Iguazu as well, we decided to go together in Floripa. As simple as that ^^

I sent a message to a guy from Alaska I met during my stay at Walk On The Beach Hostel in Rio because I knew he would be in Iguazu around the same time. And it happens that when we arrived in Floripa, he was in the same hostel hehe ^^ What a small world!

One morning he asked me:

Whit: Hey do you wanna check out that beach in the south? It’s a 2h trekking to get there though.
Shyrwyn: Wouldn’t it be muddy? Do I have to wear my tennis shoes or the trekking ones?
Whit:  How about going barefoot?
Shyrwyn:  Hum… what?! ahah ^^

Let the adventure begins!


Getting ready!


Buying bottles of water in the supermarket and eating some açai.

My favorite desert in Brazil (and only one actually ^^).

Finally!! We found the best post at the beach: next to the Caipirinha bar! (where actually I bought a coconut ^^)

Enjoying the sun :)
