Brazil is the place to be!

What’s happening guys and gals?

I’m sure all of you have been following the Olympics over in Rio. Me too!

I’ve been doing some research on places to write about and decided to check out Brazil and all it has to offer. Conclusion? Definitely Z place to be!


Let me give you just a couple of reason why I would go there in a heartbeat!

  1. Handsome guys (and girls)

I’m not in the game as much as I used to be, especially with all the married life and kids that’s going on, but my gosh, those guys just tan and workout! Not too sure how their brain is functioning, but who cares at this point. I’ve also watched a couple of their salsa competitions and boy can they dance! All around country is full of hot dudes… If you’re a guy reading this, which according to my numbers 34 percent of you are, the girls over there are off the hook too!

There is a reason that there are constant commercials on TV about Brazilian butt lift and all that good stuff. Those girls really got it going on and the strange thing, is that I’m not even uncomfortable talking about it, just feels like I’m stating the facts.

2.Beautiful beaches

Yeah, yeah. Some of you will start saying that beaches in Hawaii are the best, or Cali, or Florida… I’m not necessarily stating that Brazil has the best beaches, simply that they are a beauty to relax at. Just watching the Olympics… Did you notice that the first scene, every time the ads are over with, is the lit up beach? Now, it might be that their government prepared the beach for the games and made it all look pretty, but that’s not necessarily the beauty I’m talking about.

Do some research on parts of the country that are not as advanced and people still life in tented homes and have no electricity. beaches over there have no resorts and are almost like virgins. What I mean by that is that humans, haven’t yet corrupted their natural beauty with all the hotels, roads and machinery.

  1. Purity away from the city

As you might have already guessed, I have been looking into this for quite a while now and kept on finding notes from intense travelers (those who just need a backpack and shoes) online, who keep on finding and exploring new places in Brazil. I’m not talking about small towns or anything… More like a plot of land or a hill in the middle of the jungle where no one else would venture out to.

Those explorers have taken hundreds if not thousands of photos of birds and animals I haven’t even seen before. It almost feels like those are species living only in that part of the country and nobody has seen them before. Explorers I have come across, don’t reveal where they’ve found those animals in order to try and save them from going extinct, which is totally understandable, especially these day.

My highest recommendations for you or anyone else looking to travel, would be to go ahead and visit Brazil. Don’t go there for a week or two and stay at a resort, but venture out and I promise that you won’t be disappointed.

Exploring New Places

It really doesn’t matter if the place has been previously seen by anybody else or not, because in reality, it’s YOUR first time seeing it. When getting ready to explore the other side of that mountain, climb to a higher peak, dive lower than before or find new wildlife & plants in the forest near your house it matters what you bring and will vary based on the type of activity and experience needed.

Some essentials for any exploration would be:

  • Bottled Water – because you can never be too hydrated. Just kidding… Don’t drink too much water, because over hydration is definitely real no matter how experienced or tough you think you are. Bring plenty of water and drink it as needed.
  • First Aid Kit – I can’t stress enough the importance of preparation on the medical side of things. Going to explore a canyon? There are poisonous snakes! Checking out the forest for new wildlife? You might just find that wild life in a form of a venomous snake! Make sure to be prepared and also do a brief search to find out what types of wild dangers there are, may that be snakes, bears, wolfs or even tigers!
  • Directions and Maps – Some of you might be saying that direction beat the purpose of exploring! Let me ask you this… Do you see and experience any place just by having directions? Of course not! Otherwise you’d be able to explore the world without ever physically travelling it. Directions and proper navigation is very important especially when exploring unknown places (no the forest in your back yard). There are tons of navigation devices available for hikers, climbers and explorers. Be sure to check the out before you get too adventurous and get lost somewhere. Moving on…
  • Trusted Companion – I cannot tell you how many times I, personally, have been too proud to ask a friend to hike with me and It has proven to be a mistake, after I got lost in the woods and spent the night there. Wolves were hauling and birds screaming like crazy! It’s no joke where you’re alone, so be sure to bring a friend and explore together.
  • Communication Device – Yes, yes! I know that you’re probably trying to get away from it all and spend some time without civilization in your face, but let’s face it… You need to communicate and keep people from worrying about your well being. I’m not saying that you should spend the whole time walking around with your face inside of the phone browsing through your social media, but simply to check in with the world and people you’re currently away from.

Some or all of the things I’ve outlined above might come naturally to some, but not others. You might also say that it’s all just common sense, but let me tell ya… Common sense isn’t so common any more… I’m all about seeing new places and experiencing new things, I just want to advocate doing it safely and being prepared for pretty much anything an adventure can throw at your face. Pack light, but pack smart.
