So I moved to Iticimirim. This time it wasn’t a hostel but a pousada where I had my own room.
Why there? Because my friends Bernhard, Michaela and Lisa-Marie stayed there for their 4 week vacation. We had decided to meet up before I left Germany. Actually they where the ones that gave me a ride to the airport at the begin of this whole trip.
So the Pousada is located right at the sea and it is one of very few properties with direct access to the beach. The location is such that you should be able to see turtles from there all year round. I guess I slept too long all the time.
When I arrived the pool had been cleaned and it was sometimes nice to go in there instead of the sea as the waves didn’t really invite you to swim.
The room was a little spartan compared to my experience with other hotels (no closet for example) but this might be due to the hot humid sea air.
But it did have all you need as you can guess from the picture.
I didn’t see anything from the town itself so I have no way to tell you how it looked like. Walking anywhere but to the beach from the Pousada was not really an option. It was to far out of the way for that.
That the employees didn’t speak english didn’t make it easier for me but somehow there was always a way to communicate.
The nights where quiet. The mosquitoes kept to the sea and the seaward bundles so I had no problem sleeping.
The only thing that was a little dampening the spirit that the crew often wasn’t available because they had some “training”. We do believed this to be cost cutting because at those times we where more or less the only guests.
Well that way we did either eat out or did BYO.
