BRAZIL

 

SEASON 1 | EPISODE 18: Rio - Part II

 

We continue our adventures in Rio - so much to do, so little time. We couldn't fathom NOT doing some of the touristy stuff while in Rio. So we spent some quality time visiting the stunning Christ the Redeemer in Corcovado, and also taking the gondolas up to the Sugarloaf Mountain to enjoy two different panoramic views of Rio in all its glory. But we also had some unusual experiences, thanks to Rodrigo's long-time friend Adriano and his better half, Patricia, who know all the best there is to do in the city: we visited the almost hidden Gigoia Island, only accessible by boat; went up to the top of one of the largest slums in Rio, Vidigal, for another breathtaking view of the Cidade Maravilhosa; and enjoyed a traditional Brazilian feast at a popular local restaurant. Lastly, Rodrigo describes how he conquered his fear of flying, and the group takes a bike tour through some of the most iconic Rio neighborhoods under a blazing 94 F sun!

SEASON 1 | EPISODE 17: Rio - Part I

 

Our first adventure in Brazil is in beautiful Rio de janeiro. Our experience was 100% positive - forget all the negativity and bad reputation the city has garnered over decades about urban violence and abject poverty. Rio exudes exuberance in every imaginable way. We divided our time between a cool penthouse and a friend's apartment, both located just two blocks from the beach. Our days were enjoyed basking in the sun in the famous Ipanema Beach (the birth place of the Bossa Nova movement), lounging, and preparing for the amazing fireworks show in Copacabana for New Year's Eve (and Marco's Birthday.) Watch how beach life is done right, and learn the best and most natural way to cure a jellyfish sting!
