Brazil 2008

(Note: This is a work in progress see Holidays)

Our Holiday started with a Journey by Train to London, followed by a bus Journey to my parents House in Bishops Waltham. We stayed the night there before making our way back to Heathrow. The flight took 18 hours which is no surprise considering its is 5889 miles from england to Brazil. After another 5 hour bus journey we finally arrived at Trish and Joey’s Mums house in Sao Jose do Rio Preto.

Our first day in Brazil was quite relaxed, Joey and Trish went off to be pampered, while Chris Alex and Myself got acquainted with Luis over a few beers at the local Bar. The next day we went to for a walk around the lake while Joey and Trish were at the hairdressers.

Our first day trip was to a place called Olympia where we spent the day at a water park, it was really fun, and the sun was gloriously warm. I really liked that there was a pool with a drinks bar in it.

After spending the next few days relaxing and shopping in Sao Jose do Rio Preto, we head of to Sales to spend some time in a country lodge. We spend one afternoon horse riding, I had a go on the horse and cart. We also played some volleyball, and went for a few trips down the river on the kayaks.
