Desde o começo o Diego, Eric e Rasta nos receberam muito bem e fizeram de tudo para que nossa experiência fosse a mais irada possível! Não tenho palavras para descrever como me senti bem fazendo um trabalho desse tipo, limpando parte das praias que visito desde pequeno. Conseguimos juntar 4 sacões de lixo e ainda conhecemos praias e trilhas surreais de lindas. O melhor de tudo foi o grupo de worldpackers reunido nessa missão. Galera gente boa demais e todos unidos pelo mesmo propósito. Cara, não vejo a hora de participar dos próximos! Valeu família Worldpackers!

Even being a member of the crazy Worldpackers Team, this one-week stay at Corcovado as a Worldpacker made me realize that it's not about the time you stay or even the destination you choose to go. It's about the experience you have, the people you meet and your willing to get the best out of each moment. 1 million thanks to all Worldpackers at #CorcovadoRioHostel who made my stay unforgettable - and helped me improving my Spanish. Yeah! High fives to Guilherme, the legendary host who opened his hostel's doors for me. Corcovado got a family thing going on over there! Can't wait to go back :)
