Fortaleza, Brazil is a medley of culture and beauty, from natural resources, man-made creations and a variety of people living together and keeping their traditions vibrantly alive. This relatively small space in the world is a dream. It is located in the North East of Brazil, just 3 degrees South of the Equator. We see the sun 350 days a year and during the hottest days of Summer there’s a characteristic breeze that unmistakably lets you know you’re in Fortaleza.
My family and I have been living in Brazil for the past 3 years and it has changed our lives. There are many things told about Brazil, some true, some not so true, but there's one I fully agree with and it is that Brazil is paradise. Yes it is! Whether you are here with the sole expectation of travel or you are planning to settle down, Brazil will offer you the best and more often than not, it will change you.
Before I came to live in beautiful Brazil I had only spent holidays at the beach and there was that sense of detachment in me that knew it would be lovely to stay yet I had a home to go back to. After living here for 3 years the though alone of leaving for a short break makes my heart ache, there's an incredible sense of freedom that comes from looking at the sea everyday and even when you don't you know it's there. This is the same view Brazilians have - to them the sea plays such a key part of their lives and that's the reason why they fully embrace it and transform places like this into home to welcome those who have yet to understand their love for the sea.
