Photos from 2014

2014 has been starting very well with a great European Championship in Denmark and yet another title for the French team. I managed to go there before heading to Brazil and it's been amazing! The rest of the year has also been pretty nice with great times in Rio de Janeiro. Do not hesitate to click on the "more" buttons to see the full size photos and other information.

European Championship in Hungary

Once again I managed to take a few days to go to Hungary for the last games of the Woemen European Championship. And once again it was a great trip with good games, great visits and lots of time to catch up with the French team, the French supporters and some good friends living there.

Semi-final of the 1st Division Carioca

Unfortunately injured and unable to play, it’s from the stands that I lived this epic semi-final of the 1st Division Carioca. Probably the longest game I ever watched with six extratimes of five minutes each. But in the end it’s my team who ended up the winner and it was a great moment for Niteroi!

End of Year Party at the Pestana Deck

Samba at Escola de Vila Isabel

Vila Isabel is one of the biggest samba school in Rio. They won the competition of the 2013 carnaval and were preparing for the 2015 carnaval when we went there for the night. Not sure if they’ll win this year but it was great to see their new performance.

Hike to the Pedra da Tartaruga

The hike up the 842 meters of Pedra da Gavea is pretty steep but really worth the effort. With a 360° view around Rio’s coastline it is one of the best spot around the city and a perfect day trip for a sunny weekend.

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!
