During our round the world, we met a French family similarly going around the world with their 2 daughters Lea and Alice, but for 12 months (lucky them!). We met them in a pizzeria in El Calafate, in the Argentinian Patagonia and enjoyed so much our pizzas together that we got together again the next day for a parilla. With 12 months backpacking all over, they’ve had a lot of time to explore beautiful remote places. One such faraway corner is the Lencois desert in the North of Brazil, a place where I have always dreamt to go. Below is a photo from their blog 4sacs a dos (literally meaning 4 backpacks) which I love. I’ve had it saved on my desktop for a few months and thought it was time to share it now that they have come back home.
The perfect representation of a family adventure:
Their daughters wrote in French on the blog what touched them most during their year of travel. I love how it reads. Here’s my translation of Alice’s words, 9 years old:
– What amazed me most:
…That Tanoï and By (two young girls from Laos) would prefer eating rice rather than homemade mashed potatoes.
…That one can find nutella and vache qui rit (a very French sort of cream cheese) almost anywhere in the world.
…That there are some countries where it’s summer all year long.
…That the sea can be brown sometimes…
Ps: To the 4 sacados family…Don’t pack your 4 backpacks too far away, you might want them back sooner than you think!
