Gold Coast, Queensland, Austrália. (Parece Miami misturado com Rio de Janeiro!)

Gold Coast (Costa de Ouro) e a cidade de crescimento mais rápido da Austrália. Conhecida pelas praias e do surf (tem até uma praia chamada Surfer’s Paradise (Paraíso dos surfistas) e uma cidade moderna e super desenvolvida. Muitos magnatas e estrelas tem residências por lá.

 

A praia e muito linda e eles tem uma baía linda onde da para fazer passeios de barco não somente para ver as mansões como a bela natureza.

Um dos passeios mais aventureiros e andar de jet boat. O barco vai super rapido e passa super perto da praia. Emocionante!

Também fomos visitar o Springbrook National Park, situado há alguns minutos da cidade em direção ao interior. Existem lindas cachoeiras e da pra fazer ótimas caminhadas. Se você gosta de natureza, não perde essa!

 

Aproveitamos para ir ao Currubin Wildlife Sanctuary (Parque de Animais de Currubin). Queríamos tirar fotos com Coalas e ver Cangurus de perto. Realmente vale a pena!

Para quem gosta de gastronomia e compras, Gold Coast oferece do bom e do melhor.

Shopping Centers lindos!

Nao e por nada que esta cidade esta crescendo tanto! O lugar é abençoado por Deus!

Descobrindo Byron Bay, Queensland, Australia

Byron Bay é uma cidadezinha super legal que atrai mochileiros do mundo todo. E um lugar legal para surfar e observar baleias. Por ser o ponto mais leste da Austrália, as baleias passam muito perto da costa durante as sua migrações norte-sul. Dá pra ver baleias pulando fora d’água da praia!

 

Perto Cabo Byron, que é o ponto mais leste da Austrália tem um parque chamado Crystal Castle (Palácio de Cristal). O parque tem um jardim lindo adornado por enormes cristais. Enormes ametistas, incluindo a maior do mundo! Muitos desses cristais são provenientes do Brasil.

 

O parque tem uma vibração fantástica. Eu sou super sensível a energia dos cristais. Nao sei se você já reparou isso alguma vez. Os cristais até podem ser utilizados em diferentes tipos de terapia. Mas isso é outro assunto…

Ficamos no The Byron at Byron, um hotel lindissimo!
Recomendo visitar este lugar! Os Australianos sao super comunicativos e adoram bater papo com estranhos. Este é um lugar magico que eu adoraria voltar a ver!

Muita paz neste lugar encantado!

Keep going, you will get there!

4 Years ago I decided to change my life.
I had no idea what to do. I just knew I wanted to travel.
Since then I found a way to make money while I travel.
It wasn’t easy. It wasn’t hard either.
I almost quit several times when it got tough.
I felt stupid many times, I questioned myself, I even got desperate at times.
And look now! People think I’m lucky!
Ha…ha…ha!!!
Lucky!!!

I’m just grateful I didn’t listen to myself when I wanted to quit!

If you are feeling discouraged, take a quick look at where you started and where you are now. Celebrate your gains (even if they are still modest).

My advice to you: Keep going!

 

Traveling is the path for peace on earth.

I used to have a fixed viewpoint about the world. I was born in Rio de Janeiro and I defined myself as Brazilian. By contrast, everything else was foreign.

What I was used to, I considered normal and foreign things were “weird”. I also was “trigger-happy” with criticism about other cultures.

But having been to 74 countries and seeing the beautiful diversity of humanity at work. Seeing that each culture is an answer to real challenges that were faced by a group of people in a specific environment. Has brought me a lot of hope!

Every culture is precious and unique. And I dropped some of my original programming and adopted behaviors from other cultures because they just work better for me. Re-shaping my personality by choice!

This has allowed me to perfect my life strategy. Traveling is like walking along a long buffet and picking my favorite foods, as opposed to eating the same “culture food”every day from my birth country.

If you are not traveling yet, hurry up! You are missing out!

You will love the freedom and the choices!

And as a by-product, you become more flexible, more understanding, more compassionate and more respectful of differences. These are all skills that mankind need to develop if we want to experience peace on this earth.

Your travels help not only you. It changes the world for the better!

Visiting Lugano in Italian speaking Switzerland.

We were very lucky to be there this spring in a beautiful sunny day!      Lugano is a lovely and mellow town. The food was awesome!

We came there by bus from Milan, Italy (about 2 hours). It was a non-eventful ride. We used Flixbus and we can totally recommend as a viable alternative to flying short distances or even taking the train.

We loved the lake side! Very well taken care of, and very lively in the spring.

Whenever we have a chance, we will definitely revisit Lugano.

Italian Switzerland is very nice. The hybrid culture of Italian and German creates a relax yet efficient society.

If you are planning a visit, 2 days would be enough time to get a good impression.

We took some nice shots at the lake side.
