Overview Brazil

We only went to two cities in Brazil: Rio de Janeiro and Salvador. Rio was a real pleasure, but the Salvador was quite disappointing. Strange bunker in the middle of the Bay Budget Let’s talk fist about the main issue: the budget. Brazil is REALLY expensive, almost as expensive as Australia (we went to big […]

Rio de Janeiro

Brazil, last country of our RTW trip… and its beautiful and vibrant city, Rio de Janeiro!

San Jose, Arenal and Monteverde

San Jose Our first day in Costa Rica was pretty intense! We landed in San Jose the same day as the National Football team: the entire city and its main roads were closed or packed up with Ticos (Costaricans) and it took us nearly 3h to go from the airport to our hostel, compared to […]

Volcano National Park

What is Hawaii without volcanoes? We visited the Volcano National Park and it was AWESOME! The park is composed of two volcanoes: Kīlauea, one of the world’s most active volcanoes, and Mauna Loa, the world’s most massive one. The main Crater Halema’uma’u Crater is the main crater of Kilauea: the activity is constant in this […]
