Praia Da Joaquim, Between Sand Dunes and Massive Rocks

We keep on extending our stay in Florianópolis. “Maybe instead of checking out on Wednesday, we can check out on Thursday… or, fuck it, on Friday.” “If we stay any longer, I’ll have to register Mark at the local school,” I joke.

Posted: 1/9/2019 | January 9th, 2019 Berlin is a gigantic city. It stretches over 883 square kilometers and is home to over 3.6 million people. I hated the city when I first visited it.
