Patria Amada Brasil!

We just bought tickets to Brazil! We found a really good deal on Delta from LA to Sao Paulo (with taxes and fees it was $475 round trip.) We’ll travel to a few different parts of the country and we’re leaving little Moses behind with Grandma and Grandpa. Next we have to get our visas from the Brazilian consulate but first I’m going to take a moment to dance around my living room.

    So cool to see someone put a wish out there and then do things to make it come true!

    How long will you be abroad?

    Brasil is beautiful. I would suggest visiting the south. Florianopolis is an Island just off the coast (connected to the mainland by bridge) of Santa Catarina.

    I'm loooving the inexpensive airfare lately. It's so nice!

    $475 is a STEAL though! Good job!

    I can't believe you aren't taking Moses – how could you.

    Just joking … just trying to do what you did to me when I left Lucy for Sweden. The only reason we are taking Lucy on our next trip is because we have trust issues with leaving her now.

    Further to your friend Ashlynn's little joke, I must say that you & Paolo (ha ha) are pretty lucky when it comes to the grandparents looking after Moses for you! You get the best of both worlds (lovely family + an annual holiday sans child). I say this in the nicest possible way because I know that you cherish your extended family. I'm a long-time reader too. x

    Brazil is amazing! And seeing the Cristo Redentor (Corcovado) in person is unforgetable. I hope you get a chance to take a short trip to Rio to see it!
    Have fun!

    WHERE did you find this flight?? And when are you leaving?? I am looking for a similar deal for my honeymoon!!!!

    $475?! Never, in all my life and trips to Brasil (which is a lot since half my family lives there) have I seen tickets for so cheap. I actually have to go for work at the end of June/beginning of July, so I hope I can find tickets that cheap!

    You'll love it. I highly recommend going to Salvador (in Bahia), if you have the option. Recife & Olinda (in Pernambuco) are also wonderful, though at this time of year the weather is a bit unpredictable (pretty rainy). If you're going to the south, take a jacket. =)

    My husband and I plus another couple had so much fun bumming around Brazil for a month (about 2 years ago). We couldn't get enough of Sao Paulo and Rio. Iguacu Falls & Itaipu were fabulous, too. I had the best hot chocolate in my life there.

    If you're ever in the middle of Goias, head over to Rio Quente's Hot Park. It's a Brazilian water park and a lot of fun!
