What have we learned in the end?

It has been over a month since our trip through the Brazilian northeast has ended. Slowly, memories, lessons learned and new friendships settle into our hearts. Little by little we are able to decode what this trip really represented in our lives.

Every trip is in fact a trip inside our […]

Rota Ecológica: A different kind of tourism

From the moment we arrived at the Pousada Patacho, we realized that – besides being an excellent accommodation option – it is very similar to what we imagine, when we think about building a pousada – a place to celebrate the good things of life: to eat and drink […]

What is good for the park, is good for its people

Since our arrival in the Chapada Diamantina National Park, we feel that its history represents a strong symbol for our search. The contrast between the diamond extraction on one hand and the conservation of nature on the other, combined with the ongoing challenge to reduce poverty teach important lessons for those who envision […]
