BLOGGED! A taste of the carnaval

"I cannot say enough how much fun it was! After all the dance numbers were done, the bouncers encouraged everyone to go invade the dance floor. And before we knew it, everybody in the whole gymnasium--performers, locals, people from around the world--were singing, dancing, and drinking!"

In Brazil, the month of March is all about one thing:  THE CARNAVAL! The country's annual festival officially kicked off last March 1-5.  And while it was nothing compared to the videos of the recent parades my cousin sent u...

BLOGGED! Around São Paulo: Mercado Municipal and Estação da Luz

"Despite commerce being its strong suit, the city is not devoid of culture. Beneath those flashy skyscrapers, horrendous traffic, and thick smog are different haunts where you can get lost in the Paulistas' world of arts and entertainment."
The Octávio Frias de Oliveira Bridge.  All work and no fun. That, according to my aunt, is how the Cariocas (native inhabitants of the city of Rio de Janeiro) describe the Paulista (inhabitants of the state of São Paulo).  IM...

If in the Philippines, there's an abundance of makeshift basketball courts, in Brazil, makeshift futebol fields are everywhere--on the streets, beaches, and inside parks.

BLOGGED! Arquipélago de Ilhabela

"The moment our wheels touched the island streets and we rolled our windows down, I fell in love with Ilhabela.  Upon disembarking the ferry, you will see stores lined up selling colorful beach paraphernalia and local trinkets.

Samba was also playing left and right easily immersing you into the island life."
Beautiful island. That's what the Portuguese word, Ilhabela, literally means.  And true enough, this archipelago located at the state of São Paulo very much deserves that name with its beaches, dense forests, and--from what I...

BLOGGED! Malasimbo 2014: A fusion of music, arts, nature and heartbeats

"I was only familiar with around two of the tracks he sang that night but I couldn't help but be caught in the rhythm of hums and sighs from the audience. It was as though the festival grounds were pulsating with heartbeats."
The Malasimbo 2014 stage set right in the middle of the forest of Mount Malasimbo. When someone says "Puerto Galera", one would automatically think, beach!  I've been there a couple of times what with the island so close to t...

BLOGGED! Around São Paulo: Beco do Batman 

"Far from the dark and dreary Gotham City, every inch of this alley is covered with splashes of color making it an open air graffiti museum and instant heaven for photographers."
Blending in.  A wall in Beco do Batman (Batman's alley) in the city of São paulo. Psychedelic and surreal. These are probably the two words that best describe Beco Do Batman or Batman's Alley in Rua Gonçalo Afonso, an alleywa...

BLOGGED! BRAZIL: A gastronomic feast

"Bottom line is, if you're on a diet, forget about going to Brazil. Or better yet, if you're going to Brazil, FORGET ABOUT YOUR DIET. Because really, this South American country's line up of traditional food is just as colorful as its culture."

+Karmina Vidad  +Conrado Jr. Vidad 
Brazil is not for the weak eater. And I can say that with certainty, 5 lbs. and counting later. Brazil is meat country and one important thing every traveler should know is that their servings are deceiving.  Like if you orde...

I still have my not-so-glorious moments but I kinda like me right now.
Introduction
"You, dear friend, are Koryn. Same doe-eyed girl I met in a reggae bar in what seems like ages ago. You are comfortable in your craziness and staunch in your sanity. You are a tomboy and a princess and fabulous either way. You love fiercely, whether it be friend, family or otherwise. And yes, with wisdom far beyond your years, you are still learning. You know who you are. You are you." --Adam Mordo
