After the crazy week at the Carnaval in Rio I decided to stay one week in a quiet paradise-like beach town in Brazil, detoxing and relaxing. I opted for Buzios, 4 hours North of Rio because a friend that I met in Buenos Aires was going too and she said it was exactly what I needed. She was right. I’ve spent a week here, renting buggies, exploring the area (Cabo Frio, all the beaches in Buzios, etc), and most of the time just staying at the hostel, enjoying the swimming pool, reading, and preparing my come back. After 6 months of travelling, I needed a holiday from this holiday, and I got it. Batteries fully charged!
