I am one lucky girl. I am blessed to have amazing friends who will go to the ends of the earth with me… A couple of girlfriends and I conceived the idea for this trip over a year ago – at the time seeming like it was infinitely far away, and we didn’t know if it would actually happen, or that it would end up being as amazing as it was. I’m chalking it up as one hell of a birthday celebration as we left two days after I turned 30 – what a way to ring in the beginning of a new year and decade of life.
We enjoyed a great combination of relaxation, sightseeing, going out and having chill nights. We had some wonderful food and obviously amazing caipirinhas. I’ve made my first attempt at recreating this classic Brazilian drink at home, and am excited to share with you soon the best caipi out there. I couldn’t have asked for better company or a better experience, which was truly one of the best trips I’ve taken.
