BozAroundTheWorld – the end

Apr 23, 2011

We are finishing our Round the World today. Last stop, Rio de Janeiro. Right where we started, five months ago.

As I write this last post before we head back to London, I am reminded of these buddhist words of wisdom, which I quoted when we were in Burma early January.

What life on earth is…

A falling star, a bubble in a stream.

A flame in the wind. Frost in the sun.

A flash of lightning in a summer cloud.

A phantom in a dream.

 

I hope you enjoyed travelling with us on this beautiful adventure. Please don’t hold it against me if I don’t post for a little while now. I am going to have to find my raison d’être again…

Beijos from Rio, with lots of Saudade

    My goodness, finished already? Ah noooooooooo. I feel I only started reading this just last week! My how time flies! Thank you Vanessa, for taking us through a wonderful journey, sharing your travels, your family, your experiences with us. I have thoroughly enjoyed it and learned so much more of parts of the world that I was ignorant in. We just went to see the movie Rio yesterday and that combined with the fact that my father lived many years in Sao Paulo.. I would love to visit Brasil! Eat real fejoada and immerse myself in Brazilian culture. : ) Have a safe trip home and I hope and wish you a soft landing back home. 😀

    Loved reading about your wonderful adventure – was very inspired. Shame we didn’t get to see you in New Zealand.
    Hope you don’t find living back in London too dull now!!
