About

When bad times come, the memories of a great trip are the best medicine to cheer you up. After all, you will always have Paris! These are my memories, my traveltimes.

PS: I also "travel" a lot around my own city (Toronto) and my neighborhood (Scarborough). All pictures were taken by me.

Ao longo das avenidas
Nos campos de terra e grama
O Brasil é só futebol.”

Morro de São Paulo - Bahia - Brazil
People come from all over the world to enjoy the stunning beaches and the relaxing atmosphere of this place. You can only get to Morro de São Paulo by boat. Cars are not allowed in the island. Wheelbarrows (the local “taxis”) and donkeys carry everything around: luggage, people, groceries… The village was founded in 1535 and has some beautiful historic buildings. There is also lots of adventure: an incredible zip line, trails and boat tours.The night life is quite exciting: there are many bars, restaurants with live music and luaus after midnight. You can have a drink prepared with fresh fruits or try local food in stands in the street. Or you can just lay in a hammock and be mesmerized by one of Brazil’s most beautiful landscapes.
