A comfortable bus took us to Florianopolis to enjoy some days of beach life. Said and done – we have had great days here: enjoyed the beach (used sunblock – except for on the eyelids, and Jon got burned on them). The hostel where we stayed had surf boards, body boards and some other beach toys for us to use for free and we tried to surf and Jon were able to stand up after a while – we both really liked it and had a great time.
And maybe the best thing during this time here: horseback riding!
Jon was a bit scared when we started but he did very well. Classic horse pic =)
And yes, we know that you should have a helmet, but none were supplied! My horse were cute and very strong. In the woods me and the horse lost a battle with a tree and I fell off. But not to worry, all went very well and I didn’t hurt myself.
Pretty cool to gallop by the beach with this nature as backdrop.
Jon did very good all the tour. We might do this again because of all the fun it was. I also learnt a lesson from yesterdays adventure on horseback: do not do horseback riding in suit trousers.
Today we both have a massive muscle soreness and are a bit hung over. T0morrow evening we leave for Foz do Iguacu. The first night bus is booked! Its a 14 hour trip with the bus company Catarinense, the same that brought us to Florianopolis. We took the leito seats which are more expensive, but you are more or less able to recline into a fully horizontal position – a review is coming later on!
