  • I’ve been to a Coffee Shop down in Campeche, Florianopolis. It’s called Nas Ondas Café, in the Pateo Campeche Shopping. A great atmosphere with great coffee and delicious deserts. I love it!

  • Beautiful Beach. It is not tourist season currently so it is quiet. A great place to take a walk and meditate. The sand is like powdered sugar and the winds aren't too chilly near mid-day. Unfortunately, we came across a dead sea turtle during our stroll the other day. Please be sure not to litter on the beach. These poor creatures mistake the trash for food and meet an untimely demise.
  • Picture perfect, one of the best beaches in Floripa. Start of the beach was quite busy (February) but we only had to walk for a few minutes and had the beach to ourselves :)
