Brazil - Claire on the Costa Verde and beyond

In September I took off on my third trip to Brazil - an exciting one as Rio finally featured in the itinerary (I was beginning to feel like a bit of a fraud flouting my Brazil knowledge having never visited its most popular and iconic city).

Brazil - Claire on the beaches of the north-east

Home to approximately 5,000 miles of coastline, Brazil knows how to do beaches; from vibrant city shores, to idyllic island getaways, the choice is almost too abundant. The words ‘once sleepy fishing village’ seem to be bandied about more freely than the cachaça flows, to (albeit accurately) describ... Read more»

Satnav in Latin America

While I was planning a recent driving trip to southern Brazil (with my trusty co-driver Sue) I thought I would (or should) trial some form of satellite navigation (Satnav). Local maps only tend to show the major roads and are sketchy at best when it comes to town plans, and online maps (such as Goog... Read more»

Brazilian wildlife and adventure - Bonito and the Pantanal

So there I was snorkelling down a crystal-clear river through virgin forest, capuchin monkeys in the trees, shoals of coloured fish all around when suddenly the fish scatter as a giant river otter breaks the water to my right - wow! Such is Bonito in southern Brazil, a picturesque area of forested h... Read more»

Planes, trains and scarlet ibis - Ed in southern Brazil

In September, I headed to southern Brazil to visit the colonial cities, Atlantic rainforest and picture-postcard beaches of Paraná state. From Sao Paulo, I flew to the regional capital Curitiba to take the Serra Verde Express, one of the most impressive train journeys in South America. The train cut... Read more»
