Elliott and I are going to Brazil. Tomorrow ! Our flight is just a few hours away. Reason why I should be snoozing right now instead of up on the internet but the excitement over going away for almost two months traveling around the country to see family and friends is too grand. As much as I  love the snow, we are so ready for change of scenery and hot climates ( it’s summer down south you guys ! ) It’ll be the perfect way to ring in the new year.

As usual, access to the internet will be limited while I’m there. Which is kind of nice ( if it doesn’t drive me crazy ) to experience life without being plugged-in 24/7. I’ve packed a ton of books for the plane and of course, lots of sunscreen in my suitcase. Happy New Year e até logo.

Contrary to what many believe, this time of the year in Brazil is not exactly hot. Rio tends to get a lot of rain but luckily this time it was bright and sunny every single day of my stay. Just like the real Rio I know. No boots, no sweaters or umbrellas. Ah!

It’s not summer yet, no. But I just booked my sunny season stay in Brazil for the next two months and these happen to put me in vacation planning mood. My friend Dani snapped them last May at Prainha, a secluded beach in Rio. This is where I’d go when Ipanema got too crowed for my towel (weekends) and or too boring for my judgment (once in a blue moon). Also to savor unbelievably tasty whole grain banana cake at the kiosks while watching hot surfers hit the water for a change.
