Brazil Tour 2012/13

Brazil Tour 2012/13

In December 2012-January 2013 we held successfully hosted our inaugural Brazil Tour on the Costa do Descrobimento (Discovery Coast). It was wonderful to spend time with our family & friends, and dance in the heartland of Lambada — Porto Seguro, Bahia!

15 people from around Australia joined our Tour encompassing Bergs International Zouk Lambada Congress (the biggest Zouk/Lambada congress in the world), traditional New Years Eve on the beach, and many of the local sites including the night markets, native restaurants, Indigenous markets, Historic City, and neighouring towns.

Our journey stretched across Porto Seguro, Coroa Vermelha, Arraial d’Ajuda, & Caraiva, and was a colourful energetic mix of spectacular beaches, samba pagode, lambada dancing, african-brazilian cuisine, amazonian acai. A trip of a lifetime with amazing memories! We will be heading back to Brazil in 2014. You’re welcome to join us.
