Take me to Paqueta

Whilst on the search for a new NGO to work for, we stumbled across the island of Paqueta. Paqueta is one of the several islands surrounding Rio that are eco-friendly and forbids the use of cars/motors. Instead, the only way to get around the island is by foot or bicycle. An hour boat ride out of Rio, this tiny island is a far cry from the hustle and bustle of the hectic city and is a favourite for couples needing a peaceful getaway.

 We stayed until it was time to catch the last boat back to the city and caught this amazing sunset. The pictures truly don't do it any justice as it was one of the most peaceful and serene things I have ever witnessed.
