Birds, birds, birds : )

The one nice thing about writing a blog about a place after everyone else has already written about it, is that I can write what I like and you readers pretty much know what I’m going on about : )   As I have stated before, there are a lot of birds in Brazil. So …

Meeting People – by Karin J

Hi again. I have been notified that it is time for me to blog again. So here I am blogging. I decided to blog about Trinidad – rather than go on from where I left off, which was Salvador, right? Well, since then we stopped at French Guyana. It was a fascinating place and we …

The Trinidad Zoo – by Sophia

It was Sunday and we said that we were going to the Zoo at three o’clock that afternoon. At first I didn’t want to go because I was scared that the animals weren’t looked after, but when I thought about it and saw the Zoo I changed my mind and decided to be very excited. …

Here goes my blog. The first 5 days were horrible because practically my whole family was sick. But the days after that was very beautiful. The water was very blue and clear and when we swam in the sea there was a school of fish it was very amazing. There were dolphins that jumped fully …

Salvador to Devil’s Island – By the Mom

  The 1840 miles to Devil’s Island was the most difficult sailing we have done so far. We left Salvador on the 21st of July 2015. (This gives you a good idea of how behind our blog is). The wind was light and we motored out from the coast to catch some more wind. The sea was …

Itaparica Island – by Karin (the Mom)

We left Salvador to go to Ilha Itaparica – one of the renowned islands in Salvador Bay. It usually takes 2 hours to motor to the island, but the wind was from the right direction and, of course, we sailed 🙂  It took us about 4 hours to reach the anchorage of Itaparica Town. This counts as …
