Castelo de Itaipava

Itaipava Castle, which was built in 1920 by Baron J. Smith de Vasconcellos, is famous for being a reproduction of the Renaissance castle, designed by architect Lucio Costa and his friend Fernando Valentine. It is a fabulous venue for weddings, parties, New Years, conferences and other special events.

Itaipava Castle is located in the small town of Itaipava close to Petropolis not far from Rio de Janeiro. Unfortunately it was closed during the Carnaval holiday when we were in the area. But, I just had to take some pics and share with you. Could you imagine having a wedding here…

It looked like something right out of a Fairy tale!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
