How about going barefoot?

Have you ever heard about Lagoinha do Leste?

Well, for me the answer was no.

See, when I decided to travel to South America I didn’t want to be bothered with a travel guidebook. Simply because I’d get frustrated with all the things I haven’t had the time or the money to do.

I’ve been to Floripa because I met that Australian girl in São Paulo who wanted to go there before heading to the Iguazu falls. And since I wanted to go to Iguazu as well, we decided to go together in Floripa. As simple as that ^^

I sent a message to a guy from Alaska I met during my stay at Walk On The Beach Hostel in Rio because I knew he would be in Iguazu around the same time. And it happens that when we arrived in Floripa, he was in the same hostel ^^ What a small world!

One morning he asked me:

Whit: – Hey do you wanna check out that beach in the south? It’s a 2h trekking to get there though.
Me: – Wouldn’t it be muddy? Do I have to wear my tennis shoes or the trekking ones?
Whit: – How about going barefoot?
Me: – Hum… what?! ^^
