We got to Paraty at around four just in time to catch the last little bit of sun, I was relived there was any after our previous trip. Lauren seemed to like the beach and the hotel was nice. Lauren got ready and I went to the shop to get a few beers in and waited patiently for her to get ready.
We went out for a nice meal at a restaurant I had found in my previous visit. The place was buzzing there was live music playing and the waiter was really helpful. I order a bad ass steak as I was craving meat as always. It took an age for the food to come but the good atmosphere in the place made me ignore my hunger. When the food arrived it was unreal one of the nicest steaks I've had.
We had a slow wonder down the river to the beach bar at the geko had a few more drinks and drifted back to the hotel because Lauren wanted to be up early and have a full day in the sun.
The morning came and we did get up early and make the beach and the weather was unreal. We had a dip in the sea then Lauren was fully ready to chill all day. I managed about two hours before getting restless. Knate came to my rescue as he was in the same boat. The girls chilled on the beach and we went into town to get cash, book tours and do anything that wax not beach related. It took us a lot longer than we thought because as usual the cash points were not f***ing working.
When we got back the girls was just leaving the beach. Lauren had sunburnt all her legs because she didn't respect the Brazilian heat, she would now struggle to get a tan. We all dived in the pool and invented a sick defending your end of the pool game. It got intense we made an arena out of deck chairs and Lauren lost interest so it was two against one. The game fizzled our and night was upon us again. Lauren got ready at a snails pace as usual I did tre standard trip to the shop to get drinks. I'm blaming how slow it takes Lauren for my drinking on this trip. We went out to the main square for something to eat. It was nothing special compared to last night. We didn't stay out to late as our boat adventure was waiting for us in the morning.
The day of the boat trip and we had to rush to get there but it was all good. The boat was sick like an old pirate ship. The weather was fantastic so we were in for a good day. The first stop was snorkelling, we stopped in the middle of ocean and had a swim with some tiny fish. I got in trouble for bombing in near Lauren and getting her hair wet, oh dear. We floated around for a bit then it was time to hit our first island. The beach was beautiful it looked like we were completely stranded in the middle of know here. Back to the boat for lunch then another island that was just as sick, the weather was baking and all were having a good time.
We got back and it was nice to get out of the heat, I made pasta for me and Lauren. Later we meet Knate n Caz by the pool had a few drinks then on to the geko where we seriously got ripped of by a taxi driver but oh we'll. We all had a good night and fully got pissed.
The following day was the only lie in so far me and Lauren had with all the moving. It was nice and we decided to have a day of doing f*** all in the sun. We went for a really nice meal right on the beach it was fantastic. We did some sun bathing then had to go into town for some Skype duties. In the evening we went back to the hostel where we and Knate stayed for a pizza and that was that I really chilled day and I enjoyed it.
The final day in Paraty was the waterfall tour. We got picked up in a funky jeep and head off. The first waterfall was sick the water was really refreshing, we sat under a massive water fall and marked about. The second waterfall was unreal there was a massive rope swing to fling your self off from all different angels. Our mental tour guide was swinging upside down and diving off trick ten metres high would let us go off the highest point but it was still amazing. We then stopped at a cacasa factory that wasn't to interesting. We went for an amazing Italian lunch in the woods it really was great great food.
The final stop was the big limestone rock, we climbed up had to cross the mostly slippery ground I had ever walked on then we were ready to go. Obviously our nutter tour guide was going down standing up but we would not as I would defiantly crack my head open. There were a group of lads at the top being lads laughing at everyone. My first go was sick and it was cool to see Lauren go down but I wanted to go faster. The second time a flew down span round and almost cracked my head open on a rock at the bottom, but it was all good fun. It was a fantastic day real fun, on the way back for some reason we stopped at a garden centre for half an hour which was random but hey we had fun.
In the evening we all went into town me and Knate had to get cash well that was the plan. When we got into town there was a power cut, blackout in the whole city. We found somewhere to buy a beer and waited but the power never came back which meant no cash points. We found a street vender for a burger and head back. The Paraty leg of the journey was over!
