Arriving at Jericoacoara


Jericoacoara beach was one of my top three must-visit places in Brazil, the other two being Rio De Janeiro and Iguassu falls. Its name means “The crocodile with open mouth”!

After saying good-bye to William (who drove me to the bus station… how spoilt can I get???) I got on the super-comfy bus to Jijoca de Jericoacoara, a village close to the world-famous beach. I slept for most of the four hour ride, but managed to take some pictures of the landscape. I knew that Ceara is supposed to be a “certao”, a dry area… but it is actually extremely green.


In Jijoca we got on a new bus. This was something I had never seen before – a 4×4 bus (if there is such a thing) with lots of luggage space on top!


The next hour was one of my best times in Brazil so far. The bus took us through dunes, lagoas and small houses, driving next to the beach for about an hour. And it was just one beach. One long stretch of beach. It is simply not possible to describe my feelings during this hour – a dream becoming a reality. I was on Jericoacoara beach.


About Vanidio

I was born in Athens, Greece, and left at the not-so-tender age of 27 to go to London for a master's degree - or, rather, to go experience the city. I worked there for a while, and after four years I decided to move back to Athens, and got a really boring job with a decent (more than decent) salary. In December 2011 I took a year off work, and travelled to Latin America, Europe, Greece and the Middle East. When I came back, I spent quite a bit of time trying to fit in and organise my "normal" life - or decide that I don't really want a "normal" life. At that time, travelling was more important to me than almost anything else... And then things changed a bit, as I got an offer from a foreign company to organise tours for foreigners in Athens. Dream coming true? Yes! We've done a few tours so far, and hopefully more are coming... let's see! And then things changed even more, as I met a nice, handsome foreigner through one of these tours. And we are now living together, and planning our next trips together :) Life is strange, isn't it!
