Preperations are coming along nicely….


Welcome one and all to my blog. I am going to try and use this to keep everyone informed about how Eilidh and I are getting along in our travels, where we are and what we are doing.

We have discovered that our first weekend in Rio de Janeiro will be Easter weekend.  This could not have worked out much better, as Brazil is a massively Catholic country that knows how to party!

We have now booked our first weeks worth of accomodation. We are staying for 3 nights at the Casa CarioKa Copacabana and then the following 5 nights at Villa Leonor. These 2 hostel look quite different, with Casa CarioKa Copacabana about 5 mins away from Copacabana Beach while also being in a jungle! Villa Leonor on the other hand is in the Santa Teresa area of Rio, this is the art district and is meant to have some pretty stellar parties over Easter weekend!

We are also well along in getting immunised up to the hilt. Rabies, the heps, yellow fever and polio are among a few of the diseases I am now ready to face in mortal combat in the depths of the amazon.

So, first update down and preparations are coming along nicely. 4 weeks right now and we will be in Rio living the Carioca lifestyle, heading for sun, fun and Easter celebrations 😀

    You’ve finished work with a bang and you are on the final countdown to departure. The blog audience awaits your next installment! Or perhaps you are too busy tidying up and clearing out??? x

    The trip is officially underway. We said goodbye to Zach and Eilidh this morning at Glasgow airport! Happy trails and lots of great memories!

    Sounds like it is going to be raining tomorrow in Rio- sunny in Alloa. Where would you rather be???
