Beautiful Beach In Florianopolis, Brazil

Beautiful Beach In Florianopolis, Brazil

The beautiful beaches in Florianopolis are definitely not few in number. The popular island in Southern Brazil is known for its picturesque coastline.  While I wasn’t that impressed with the island I cannot say anything remotely offensive of the beaches I found (after further investigation).  I would prefer the beaches a bit north in Paraty. One of […]

Favela Texture: Rio De Janeiro

Favela Texture In Rio De Janeiro

The favelas in Rio de Janeiro definitely are not what they used to be. The country has been cleaning up its act and most favelas now have police. The country has started to clean itself up for the upcoming World Cup in 2014 and Olympics in 2016.  Before then, there was a significant amount of […]

The Brazilian Maldives: Lagoa Paraiso

Lagoa Paraiso

The Brazilian Maldives can be found near the beach town of Jericoacoara in northern Brazil.  Not very well known at all, it is one of the most unique places that I have been in all of Brazil.  The town sits in the middle of a valley with sand dunes to the East and grass laid […]

The Lonely Arches in Lapa: Rio De Janeiro, Brazil

Arches in Lapa, Lapa Arches, Arches Lapa rio de janeiro, arches, arches brazil, arches rio

The Arches in Lapa are one of the main fixtures of the city and one of the tourist attractions that you should see as well.  I love to see Lapa transform at night, just behind where the picture was taken (behind the camera not the arches) Lapa turns into a massive street party on the […]

Sunny Day At Ipanema Beach: Rio De Janeiro, Brazil

Ipanema Beach

The sunny days at Ipanema Beach in Rio de Janeiro never disappoint. The glory days when everyone continuously went to Copacabana Beach are officially over, Ipanema Beach is now king in Rio de Janeiro.

Colonial Streets of Paraty, Brazil

Colonial Streets of Paraty, Brazil

The old colonial streets of Paraty, Brazil happens to be one of my favorite places in the Brazil.  There are so many things to do other than party and go to the beach like in Florianopolis.  The city of Paraty is one of the few places that many people don’t know about and its only […]

Christ The Redeemer Statue At Sunset: Rio De Janeiro

Sunset At Christ Statue

I think it is a disservice that I have been living in Rio De Janeiro for nearly two months and I just now visited the Christ The Redeemer statue.  Getting there was no issue and it was quite interesting to see different people living on the actual mountain as we climbed in the trolley.  The […]

Ipanema Beach: Rio De Janeiro

Copacabana Beach Rio De Janeiro

Nothing says Rio De Janeiro like Ipanema beach!  I always follow the locals in any city that I travel to and when I heard that Copacabana is the last place I want to be when it comes to beaches I was surely surprised.  The beaches of Copacabana have turned dirty and filled with souvenir hustlers.
