My essence captured in one SHOT by Jurriaan Teulings

My essence captured in one SHOT by Jurriaan Teulings  |  Florianopolis, Brazil  | I have been photographed all over the world, by both professional and amateur photographers… but today I was surprised by a photo that, my personal friend and colleague Jurriaan Teulings, took of me at the Fish Market in Florianopolis, Brazil last week. Truly Jurriaan… first time in my life that I feel someone has captured the essence of who I am as a person and what I do in a PHOTO. !!! THANK YOU mate. Great spending time with you in Brazil. Till next Vodka Martinis together somewhere else in the world my friend. Check his website for more AMAZING shots around the world www.jurriaanteulings.nl.

Sand Boarding in Praia da Joquina Florianopolis

Same as Snow Boarding, but in the warm hemisphere, in between the sand dunes of Praia do Joquina, only minutes away from Lagoa da Conceicao and Praia Mole in Brazil. Only 20 Reales for a full hour of adrenaline, stunning 360 panoramic views, and lots of fun. Continue reading Sand Boarding in Praia da Joquina Florianopolis
