Apologies for the long delay in loading this...it was written on the day of return to London but we have only just got internet in the flat!
The final stop on our 6-month trip was the island of Florianopolis for a week of relaxation before the impending return to London. We stayed in two different parts of the island. . .Lagoa de Concecaio, a busy hub with great nightlife and a Pousada in the middle of nowhere.
An Italian couple owned the Pousada and as their only guests we were fortunate enough to be invited to an intimate pizza evening they were having with other Italians living on the island. Amazing pizza, great wine and lovely people. The pizza chef and his wife even invited us for dinner at their home the following evening, an unexpected and very enjoyable couple of nights to end our trip!
We can’t really believe that it is time to return, in some ways it seems to have flown by but at the same time we have fitted so much in. So, after visiting 13 countries, sleeping in 63 different beds, taking 37 flights and having countless amazing experiences we are back in London! Arriving to 6C was a bit of a shock!
Time to settle back in to normal life, I guess it will be tough but the main thing is that we really did have the best 6 months and loved every moment!
