Safely back from Brazil

SIG: Travel

A group of seven Travel Group members recently returned from an exhilarating 11 days in Northeastern Brazil. We travelled in planes, minibuses, 4x4s, quad bikes, motor boats, a ferry and canoes. We saw two Unesco World Heritage Site cities with old colonial buildings. We saw two National Parks, with unique landscapes. We saw wildlife, and in particular thousands of Scarlet Ibises coming in to roost for the evening at an island in the world’s third largest delta. We saw street parties and kite surfers. The local food and drink went down well, from fresh lobsters and shrimps to churrascaria and caipirinhas. The local people were charming and the accommodation generally very comfortable. Altogether a very successful trip to a part of the world that deserves to be better known and fully justifies its nickname the ‘Route of Emotion’.
