Dec 29, 2006 - ahhh, this is what i'm talking about.....

Hello World............ Well back at the beach now and everything going fantastic. (check previous post have now added foto's) Camboriú I call the Brasillian Surfers Paradise - but way cooler. The actual main beach is always chock a block with people till at least 3am. All just people watching.... You just pick up your beach chair, mosey on down to the beach with your esky and pull up stumps on the sidewalk, the beach - where ever.

Apr 3, 2004 - Next stop, up to Camboriu.

We arrived in Camboriu after a short journey up the coast. Really nice city, bit like a mini Rio and even has a Christ statue over looking the city. 200,000 people and just 40 years old so everything is shiny and new looking! Arrived at Trevors and received a warm welcome. Spent a few weeks hanging out there, meet lots of locals who looked after us and showed us the sights. We got driven to many beaches, went swimming, snorkelling (saw lots of fish)and deepened our tans!! We were looked after equally well at night, as one of our new friends...
