Ilha Grande: Smitten, Not Bitten
Boat trips, blue lagoons, beautiful beaches… and bed bugs? The Editor discovers a quirky travellers’ paradise in Brazil in this, his latest adventure on the road.

I hit it off with Danny right away. A day trader taking an extended break from the grind, for one thing he was one of the few people I met travelling in Brazil about the same age as me (most were gap year students who had just finished their A-levels!), secondly you’ve got to love someone who doesn’t even feel the need to introduce. . .
