A reasonable Hostel!

And they´re off!!

The start to our trip didn´t go quite as planned, but turned out really well for us. We turned up at Heathrow with all our bags ready to check in and were offered 405 pounds each to take the next days flight. This was too good to pass up, so we found ourselves spending our first night not in a hostel, but in the Heathrow Hilton!

This meant an extra day hanging around the airport, but the free food, the indoor pool and the cash did compensate!

The flight was fine, apart from being separated. Some couples might think that a blessing... not us!

We changed at Sao Paulo and landed in Rio at 08:00am on the 20th. My cousin (mums cousin) picked us up and took us to our Hostel where we grabbed a quick cat nap before taking a walk along Ipanema and Copacobana beaches.

More to come... just off to a bar!
