Ilha Grande – Famed Brazilian Beauty at its Best

These pictures were taken during a Spring trip to Rio Di Janeiro.  We took a much recommended day trip to hike Ilha Grande and had an absolutely spectacular day.  To read more about our day, click here: http://pauperswithouttravel.com/2012/04/28/three-women-an-eduardo-spectacular-scenery-and-tough-hiking-one-memorable-ilha-grande/

Beauty from the beginning of our journey
A beautiful church
A few idyllic pousadas along the way
We saw views like this all day
We met the most talented weaver!
Gorgeous people! We looked on with envy.
What is that on the sand?
Azure is no longer just a dictionary word.
Can water look any more beautiful?
It wasn’t just the water. Look at these mountains.
