Travel Theme: Sky

IMG_4409This is my debut in the weekly travel theme challenge, by Where’s my backpack?

This week the theme is sky, one of my favourites photography subjects. I usually take a lot of sky photos.

I took this one two weeks ago from my apartment balcony. It was around 6:30 pm and even though the photo got a little out of focus, the sky, the clouds and all the colors made such a stunning composition that I couldn’t resist to share with you guys. I hope you like it!

Very Inspiring Blogger Award

I was so delighted to know that The Adventurous of a Shy Girl nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. Thank you so much!!!!


I have to apologize for delaying this post so much. But things had gone crazy the last few months and I didn’t had the time I needed to dedicate to this post. But now I’m checking it from  my to-do list.

This award made me think about those 5 months of My Little Rio Journal. When I started this blog one of my biggest challenges was making this blog a place where people could  know a little more about Rio de Janeiro through my point of view, and also bring some inspiration for people. Now I can say I ‘m on the right way to reach my target!
