o Refugio Barro Branco foi uma grande surpresa boa em minha vida.confesso q me assustei quando cheguei e me vi em um lugar no meio do mato sem ter sinal de Internet e sem comer carne kkk ,mas consegui ,foi desafiador ,mas consegui.Me conectei com a natureza ao invés da Internet rs.E tb consegui passar muito bem e tranquilo sem comer carne.Conheci pessoas maravilhosas ,cada um com seu ritmo e todos muito especiais ,cada um com sua história e fico feliz de ter participado mesmo q por poucos dias da história de cada um,em especial na história do Refugio e das melhores anfitriões Nine e Fabi .

Difícil dizer em palavras o que foi a experiência no Refúgio. Esse lugar é cheio de amor, leveza, muuita conexão. O espaço em si é uma delícia, já sinto saudades dos banhos do rio maravilhoso que passa, de trabalhar no SAF aprendendo muito com o conhecimento e olhar de Fabi sobre a natureza, e de toda essa natureza maravilhosa que existe no Barro Branco na Chapada. Sou muuito grata a Fabi, Nini e Pedro por tudo que proporcionaram nessa vivência, que foi muito importante pra mim. Desses lugares que a gente sabe que volta e uma experiência que vai ficar pra sempre guardada no meu coração ❤️✨

Não podia ter forma melhor de chegar na Bahia, Refúgio é um amor a parte deste estado. Lugar que vc chega e já se sente da família.
Para vivenciar de fato o Refúgio, a pessoa tem que ir aberta, tomar banho de rio com prazer, se desligar da net. Contato direto com a natureza e tudo que ela oferece.
Fabi e Nine te abraçam de tal forma que é difícil a despedida, roda de conversa nas refeições compartilhadas, já sinto muita falta. Apenas vivendo para dizer!!!

No meu último dia me perguntaram como eu definiria o Refúgio em uma palavra. A que mais se encaixa é "família". Ali eu conheci pessoas com quem aprendi infinitudes sem elas precisarem me ensinar nada, apenas sendo quem são. Conectei-me com as pessoas, com a natureza, com o alimento, com os momentos mais banais e corriqueiros. Eu pude estar presente o tempo todo, vivendo livre e feliz. Fabi, Nine e Emilly são pessoas maravilhosas que fazem com que tudo a sua volta brilhe tanto quanto elas. Guardo ternamente no meu coração os dias que passei com elas.
