Today’s Blast from the Past post is taking you back to November 2009, when my boyfriend (now husband) and I travelled around Brazil. After São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Iguazu Falls, we’ve stopped at the capital of Santa Catarina state – at Florianópolis.
Floripa, as Florianópolis is sometime called, is famous for its beautiful scenery and long sandy beaches. We spent our time there meeting my boyfriend’s university classmates, exploring the area and relaxing at some of those beautiful beaches. Because my boyfriend loves football (soccer) and Brazil is the “the country of football” we also attended a football match. We saw Florianópolis’ team Avai playing against Santos FC from São Paulo.
