Today im gonna talk To you about Brazil, a country that i love, and more specifically about a very very small town where I stayed almost 3 weeks one year ago, called Jericoacoara.
Wherever you’re from you won’t be able to pronounce it so let’s just say Jeri.
When I say small town I’m not exaggerating. Jeri is a village lost in the Nordeste, between sand dunes and the sea. A Landscape which makes you sometimes feel like you are on the moon. The inhabitants are mostly donkey, horses, cows, dogs, and a few humans. Besides, it’s not easy to get there, after a lot of hours in a plane to Fortaleza, you would have to take a car for 4 or 5 hours and forget the idea of a nap, the road is so destroyed that you can’t even breath normaly…
It really worth i, I had the most amazing and resting time there.
In Jeri, you wake up at 7 for kite surfing, horse riding, swimming, or even “Yogaing”…And what’s crazy is that you do it with pleasure. This place just push you to live by the rhythm of the sun, which doesn’t prevent you to sometimes drink Caipirinhas in the small streets of the village and on the beach until the end of the night.
Even if the Area is lost between the sand dunes which can seem boring and repetitive, the nature there always offers something new to discover, and to do that you need a buggy!
This kind of car is the only one you’ll see in Jeri because there is no actual roads, only sand path…
Jeri is a very famous place for kite surfing so the wind is so powerful that you can’t even stand on the beach, that’s why, thanks to the buggy, you can go to the several lagoons around the town… lost between the dunes and the vegetation, they are kind of lake of fresh water with real beaches, clear water, and even hammock to chill while you are swimming.
After a journey there, you don’t want to come back in a real city, you don’t want to wear shoes anymore, you don’t want to get on a real car again…

They are french and so cool, trust me.
Last summer, I was invited to spend a few days in Corsica. This is a french island located in the Mediterranean Sea, faced to Italy. I have a special affection for this beautiful island where I go since I was a child .. Every year, I have spent my holiday with the same group of friends in Porto-Pollo, south of Ajaccio. But that summer was different.
We were in a boat. It was terribly exciting to be able to move, go anywhere as you desired. The sea was calm and conducive to navigation. At night, the stars have filled the sky with their brilliance, then we can see the Milky Way. On morning, the sun rises with incredible colors in a clean and blue sky. Life was good and simple. Comfort, Peace and Tranquility were reigned in a friendly atmosphere. The best thing about being on the top deck of the boat was lying down and feeling the baking sun.
One morning, we decided to go to a silver magnificent beach situated in the nature reserve, the Bay of Calla Orzu. I was not returned for at least 6 years. I had forgotten how great this place was so magical. Maybe I saw it differently ? I do not know. In any case, I was amazed by the beauty of the place. The water was so clear that you could see thousands of fishes, and into the depths. We arrived at the moment as the sun was burning. We all jumped into the water. The sea was deliciously warm and salty. Further, there is a hut on the silver beach, a restaurant called ‘At Francis’. The fish are fresh daily and there is everything you want. Personally, I love the spaghetti with prawns and cream. This is one of their specialties. I acknowledged that it was not very diet for lunch (especially on the beach with this warmth) but I could not resist to the subliminal value of seafood. I’m very greedy and it is stronger than me, I had to make a little comment about the restaurant. Even if you don’t see it in the picture, you can imagine.
THIS IS IT… here we are again, it’s officially the end of summer. I didn’t notice that thanks to the weather but thanks to the swimwear sales. Sales always announce the end of a season.
The sun took time to show up but once it’s stand to his zenith it doesn’t get down easily. From June to September he was temporary our new bestfriend. We went true a lot with him (tanning, surfing, pool party, discover new places, swimwear fashion week); he also share with us his best summer partner: THE BEACH.
Bestfriends generally got their own language. How could we better speak with the sun and the beach than in the language of swimwear ? Here we got it the perfect summer team : sun, beach, you and the right swimwear.
All good stories come to an end even the more exotic one. The sun begins to hide, the water get colder, you’ve put all your swimwear closet and the worst is yet to come : school/work. September start you don’t have yet the school headache, you’re enjoying the last sunbeam, the warm weather, you are walking down the street and WHAT ? Swimwear sales in all the stores around you. It’s like if summer wants to apologize because he only exist three months.
After a long shopping day you went back home, broke but with all your new babies and your summer song on your head. You can feel a little more longer the sun on your skin and the smell of the beach.
Winter in New York is being so long!! I cannot stand it anymore!
That is why I want to bring you some sun while waiting for summer!
I was remembering my holidays in Maldives, which is for me the most beautiful, incredible, amazing (…) place in the world!
Can you imagine what does paradise look like? Alright, this is a way better!
Here is a picture of me on the beach, on this tiny tiny tiny secret island of Maldives… just to bring you some hope… : Summer is cooominnnnnng!!
Have you ever had one of those days where you want to stop whatever you’re doing and just go away somewhere serene or go back home and not deal with people or any issues? That’s how I’m feeling right now! Back home in Puerto Rico one of my favorite spots to go to is Mar Chiquita (Little Ocean) Beach in my town of Manati. The reason for its name is because as you can see above, part of it is encircled and from a persons point of view it looks like a small ocean. Its 5 minutes away from my house which is very convenient. It’s a great place to lay in the sand and meditate and not worry about a thing . The sound of the waves hitting the rocks is just as soothing. Hopefully this summer i can go if i have time off from work i miss it! Check out this short Youtube video of the beach!!
