well hello folks and prepare to be jealous...

after a 19 hour bus ride from rio (no need to be jealous of that) we arrived in florianopolis. after a few more buses (wo ho) we ended up in the little town of Santa Caterina.
My first impressions of the place is that it is like an unspoilt Byron Bay. My impressions of the place improved even more when we got an apartment on the beach (check the pics) for 12 bucks AU a night!

We all instantly fell in love with the place. Then a touch of bad luck came my way..
First night i left the window open to enjoy the fantastic sea breeze. The breeze WAS fantastic until it stopped and the mozzie onslaught began. All up i got at least 50 bites (see pic) and was nicknamed `pox´ for the next few days.
Day 2 and i decided to open a tomato sauce bottle with my nice new (thanks mum and dad) Swiss army knife. well, as u can guess, i cut a massive hole out of my finger. I ran out to show joel and then bolted for the bandages. After i settled down i wondered what had happened to the bit of finger i chopped off. After i picked up the knife, i found my answer!!! ewwww!

As mum always says, things come in threes, on the third day i banged my head on the table. hurt like hell, but not picture worthy!

The rest of our time in flori was very relaxed. Lots of book reading, sitting in the sun and having a few quiet beers.

We all decided we want to come back here and i recommend it to anyone. i seriously want to buy some land there. if your keen to chuck in for the caravan let me know!!

ciao ciao for now
