Carolina & Bernardo - A Wedding Story!

A travel blog entry by nikkirech


... that stole the show! Of course there were a variety of Brigadeiro available. Some traditional, some made with white chocolate, and some with different toppings. Brigadeiro are absolutely divine, and in my opinion, it's difficult to beat them. They are all yum! There were also a variety of Portuguese Egg Sweets, and a multitude of other little bon bons. Brazilians do a lot of sweets ...

... of time at the beach. It was also great to catchup with some of the Casey Crew (friends of Chrissy who she worked with at the City of Casey); Kerrie, Brett and BK (Andrew). Rio is so vibrant and fun, we absolutely loved it! Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs In addition to more Churrasco restaurants; we found another great type of restaurant in Rio, the KILO restaurant. Its a buffet where you pay by weight! Also on nearly every corner ...

Rio - Carnival

This is a top pick!

... from your chair, street or should I say beach sellers come around selling everything from water, beer, empanadas, sandwiches, sunglasses, sun cream & dresses. They are not pushy either , if you say no they move on. We were told how dangerous Rio is and at the moment it does not feel as rough as BA, obviously pickpockets everywhere but most people seem to have their phones, iPads & cameras on the beach. We decide to air on the side of caution ...

Copacabana Beach

... to meet up some of the people who were still at the holt, to go for dinner. But first we walked over to Lagoa to check out the floating Christmas tree. Pretty cool actually, a lot of shifting lights in it. It was not that dark, so I guess it would be better to see it after dark. We had the dinner in Ipanema area. Quite expensive but good. Then we split up with the group and me, Trish and Michelle ...

Sunshine, beaches, and the big man himself...

... in all the sights both on and off the beach - yes it is true that 'less is best' when it comes to brasilian swimwear and this applies to people of all shapes, sizes, and age. We had great views of Pao de Acucar (sugar loaf mountain). For dinner we went to our hosts house for cheesebread, pizza, wine and beers. Was fantastic to meet her family (husband & daughter) and friends - such a welcoming gesture. We arrived with bottles of wine and departed ...

    This is a little hostel in the middle of one of the most easy going favelas. We took the double room after a long flight and it was more then worth it. A master bed, including a private bathroom and toillet, a prime view over Rio itself and by night you get to see a jungle of lights! Every morning you get a breakfast (included) excisting out of coffee, cheese and ham, butter, jam, dulce de leche and fresh fruit every day. It's so close to the center that everything you wanna do is easy by foot.
    The only downpart is finding this little paradise in the first place.
