Enough mystery… in case you didn’t guess it (or I haven’t already told you), I will be traveling around Brazil for the first several months of 2013. I’ve been obsessed with Brazil for years and almost visited in 2006, but it fell through and then I got sidetracked with other travels.
I’m glad it didn’t work out then since the trip was only going to be for a week or so. Now I will get to spend at least a couple of months in Brazil to explore and learn how to live like a local.
The current plan is to live in Rio de Janiero for a while and then Sao Paulo and travel around to all of the other awesome places in Brazil. I’ve already gotten a few good recommendations from a SoCal skater transplant from Brazil, but I am always open to suggestions.
Has anyone been to Brazil lately? I typically avoid the over-hyped touristy sights and prefer to get to know the culture and way of life. Anything I must see or do (besides surf as much as possible)?
I will be there from mid January to mid April or May. I prefer warm weather and warm water surf, so please help if you have any inside info or if you know any Brazilian soap operas I can watch to try to pick up Portuguese in the next 2 months.
Passa o açúcar, por favor?
