Summer in Brasil

They’re going back. It’s enough. If you are born in the tropics, then even Portugal is cold!

They’re going to Brasil. Back to the summer of Brasil

For the carnaval of course, and for Christmas, visiting family and friends. It’s going to be summer there now. And tropical people don’t adapt that easily to more stern conditions. Autumn landed very early this year. In the 23 years I walk around in Portugal, I have never experienced the fall so early.

The weather is not the reason Fábio and Maris are going back for a few months though. Brasil is their home country, the mother land.

In March, they were stuck here, and they thought it was not the worst place to be stuck. I think they’re right. It was a good time with neighbour Frank, who barbecued the meat, while Maris cooked excellent food – and then ate together while watching the sun go down over the fields.

Maris makes excellent Brazilian food

You can’t complain about that.

Fábio could train on the Fairy Tale Terrace, or in the big room of the old bathhouse. So, the Brasilian winter went, and now that the portuguese winter is coming, they’re going to the summer again.

Spring, summer, fall, summer. Not a bad life!

We moved here in 2000 from Rotterdam, Holland to the Termas-da-Azenha, Portugal. A big step, especially with two small children. We are busy to rebuild one of portugals cultural heirlooms: Termas-da-Azenha, an old spa which has been turned into several holiday homes, rooms and a small campsite, with a swimming pool, games like pingpong, foossball, pool, boardgames, and a FancyDressingRoom. You’ll find mosaics and paintings everywhere.

The old bathhouse is going to be a museum, where you can see how things have changed. The healing mineral water still runs through the baths, and is still of an excellent quality. Since 2018 we call ourselves the first B&B&B in the world – Bed & Breakfast & Bathrobes. You can buy a unique bathrobe or kimono in our webshop, or order one tailor-made, completely to your wishes.

Each week a little blog about what is happening around us. An easy read. A few minutes in another world. A little about what it going on in Portugal. If you plan your holiday to Portugal, it might be a nice preparation. We have some nice special offers on our site.

On Sunday morning we publish it on our Facebook, on Pinterest, and on monday on LinkedIn.
