City Girl goes Country, kind of
I had my first ever visit to a hotel fazenda, which is a hotel on a farm. It's pretty popular down here. I mean, I wouldn't say it's the new black or anything, but maybe the knew brown.
I know what you are thinking, why in the hell would you vacation on a farm?! I was curious about this as well. I believe it to be a Club Med farm experience. A little more rustic, very little rules, and drinks for Mom and Dad. Fun for the whole family.
It is quite an experience. We're talking grass as far as the eye can see. That was the biggest excitement for my youngest. You know they've been living in a big city for too long when they get stoked on grass, and not the kind you smoke.
There was a whole adaptation process. First, curiosity. What is that and can I touch it? Second, acceptance. I can touch it! Third, love. Not only can I touch it, I can roll in it, eat it, and I'll never put my shoes on again.
I really do recommend this for family and friends alike. It's great to get out of the hot sweaty city to the breezy warm country. A nice dip in the pool and the warm scent of cow manure will take the edge off of any city girl.
