Back to Rio #listofsnacking

31 December 2016

The 31. of dec. โฉ Early at the morning i had to drive to a ticketbooth five stations away to get this ticket back from the Copacabana. 5 minutes after opening i got there and got a ticket "ida y vuelta" and could even change the ticket payed the day before. ๐ŸŽ‰ #maybecauseitsnewyearsoon ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ˜ƒ We got some food ๐Ÿฅ˜for the next days and got to the beach of Flamengo. ๐ŸŒŠ At 23:00 we took the metro to the Copa Copacobana with only money ๐Ÿ’ฐ the key ๐Ÿ”‘ for the apartment and white clothes --> thats the way brazils do. ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฝ It was an easy ride with a mass of white people. We buy a beer on the way to the beach ๐ŸŒŠ ๐Ÿป and it feels like a community when you are a part of all this people. ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿฟโ€โ™€๏ธ It was crazy and the people just celebrate themselves, go into the water and you feel safe as it's possible. #wellorganized ๐Ÿ‘#littlebitsadthatwegotsofrightend ๐Ÿ™„

Our host was so great, nice and helpful with a room we really feel like home ๐Ÿก. #LikeAirbnbsaid ๐Ÿ˜Š It was a little bit late but Carlos (the host) said we have to get the metro-tickets for new year to the Copacabana today or tomorrow or they will sold out. So driving hungry to a ticketbooth one metrostation away to mention that there are only one way tickets but no coming back from Copacabana. #wegotthishopingforthebest ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ€ Back at the apartment we go to a restaurant next to it and got a really nice buffet and feel like living in Flamengo. ๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿฑ๐Ÿง€๐Ÿ›๐Ÿข๐Ÿฎ #thefoodwasgoodforthestomach ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ‘Œ
The next day we drive to the busstation. With our "online ticket" received via email we go the terminal and got our printed tickets. The guys took my mobile phone ๐Ÿ“ฑ and want to close the door for printing the ticket ๐Ÿ˜… #thoughitworks ๐Ÿ‘Œ Some beautiful views of a great landscape between Paraty and Rio ๐Ÿ˜. There are many buses ๐ŸšŒ and it seems ๐ŸšŒ like ๐ŸšŒ they are driving a race ๐Ÿ with each other. Arriving at the big busterminal Novo Rio it rains โ˜”๏ธ like hell โ›ˆ โšก๏ธ and after we got a ticket for the VLT (tram) the machine gets dark ๐Ÿ˜…โšก๏ธ. Driving to the metro with this very slow tram ๐ŸšŠand got with the metro right in front of out Airbnb stay. (He told us this way from Novo Rio ๐Ÿ™ƒ)
This hostel called Canguru ๐Ÿฟ was really nice in an oldschool house ๐Ÿก. At the evening we went to the beach ๐ŸŒŠ right around the corner where everywhere was live music ๐ŸŽถ and we take a Caipirinha and some batatas fritas by a Bob Marley looking and playing duo. The next day we first book the bus to Rio ๐ŸšŒ for the next day. Then we went to the historical center of Paraty which is beautiful, but half of a day for this is enough ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ™Š After cooking some stuff and take a drink at the bar we got to watch Netflix and relax at the evening. ๐Ÿ“ฝ๐ŸŽž๐Ÿ˜ƒ
Bad internet in Trindade means hostel booking was impossible. ๐Ÿ“ด So one try to book breaks down while booking and another one wasn't possible because we have to stay three nights there, not two. Driving back to Paraty nรฃo temos una casa. But the plan just driving to those hostels we tried to book (they were at the same street) and ask for two nights. #itworks โ˜ฎ๏ธ๐Ÿ™ƒ #whataninterestingstory ๐Ÿ˜ #picturesfromparaty ๐Ÿ‘†
