My Photos

The following is the list of photos I've taken during the last couple of years. They correspond to trips and visits in the different countries I've been living in as well as holidays and weekends spent overseas. They also correspond to days, weekends or weeks focused on a particular event rather that the visit of a new place.

Hike to the Pedra da Tartaruga

Diving Weekend in Ponta do Leste

Another diving weekend a few days after the first one and yet again a very good weekend. We were in Ponta do Leste, three hours South of Rio, and we dove on the shipwreck of the Pinguino, a ship who sank not far from Ilha Grande in 1967. A very nice dive!

Diving Weekend in Arraial do Cabo

Sailing in the Guanabara Bay

Sailing in the Guanabara Bay between Rio de Janeiro and Niteroi is a great way to see these cities with a different perspective and as always with this part of Brazil, the views around there are really amazing.

A couple of days in Brasilia

Brasilia is a crazy city. Built from scratch in the 50’s the capital of Brazil is very unique and well know for its architecture and crazy buildings. Maybe not the best city in the country but definitely a city worth a couple of days.
