About Katrien

Ik hou gewoon van wandelen. Zowel in de natuur als in steden. Ik geniet ervan om onbekende of onbeminde groene plekjes te bewandelen, maar hou eveneens van de steden met hun rijk historisch erfgoed en typerend voor mij de streetart die je overal ziet opduiken. Wandelen is vertragen, tot rust komen, in harmonie komen met jezelf, ook wel grenzen verleggen,...

      Today our first full day visit to Chapada Diamantina National Park. The NP was founded in 1985 and is no less than 38,000 km2 in size. For comparison: the total area of Belgium is 30,688 km2. That means making choices.

      On the program today:

      -The Gruta da Lapa

      -Gruta Da Pratinha and the Blue Grotto

    1. After a bus journey of +/- 8 hours from Salvador we arrived this evening in Lençóis. Our base for the next few days to visit the natural beauty of the Chapada Diamantina.

      The city of Lençóis is considered the capital of Chapada Diamantina. It was once the largest diamond producer in the world.

    1. We Brazil says of course says street art. In the Rio Vermelho district you can hardly miss it. We went for a walk on our own, but that is completely safe in this area (away from the favelas). We did not have a pre-planned route, but luckily we came across a number of gems.

    1. After two domestic flights we arrived in Salvador late last night. This morning a visit to the historic city and upper city with guide Fabio.

      Salvador da Bahia is the center of Afro-Brazilian culture par excellence and one of the country's most picturesque and intriguing cities. The city has more than

    1. The Iguaçu Falls are a UNESCO World Heritage Site for a reason. And they are rightly included in the list of the 7 natural wonders of the world.

      Today we visited this natural wonder along the Argentinian side.

      Yesterday we walked on the Brazilian side to the foot of the Garganta do Diablo, today to the

    1. This morning I wrote that Foz doesn't have much to offer besides base (to the falls), but I have to come back to that.

      On the way to the dazzlingly beautiful waterfalls, we spot a number of beautiful street art works from the car. We therefore decided to have ourselves dropped off at +/- 5 km from our

    1. Foz do Iguaçu is located at the border triangle of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay. Because of this location, the city was (is) a smuggling port for many years. It is one of the most visited cities in Brazil because it is the base for the Iguaçu National Park with the famous waterfalls.

      This morning we

    1. Our stay in the Pantanal is over. We finish with fishing for Piranhas. The caught fish are fed to the Caimans which were clearly already conditioned. With this morning's catch, the Caimans will come in for several days to weeks if they rest enough.

      With regret in our hearts we leave here and head towards

    1. When it comes to kayaking, I don't just think of the Lesse from now on, but of the Pantanal in Brazil. There is no better way to become one with nature. With us two in one kayak was quite exciting at the beginning: the water is up to 5 meters deep and in some places the Caymans are almost lurking right

    1. The Rio Aquidauana is 670 km long and flows into Paraguay. The name Aquidauana comes from the indigenous language Guaicuru and means narrow river.

      It is the only river in the region and during periods of flooding (during the rainy season) when the roads are impassable, the river is used to supply the
