Located in South America, Brazil is a vibrant and colorful country where you will find some of the friendliest people in the world. It covers a major part of the continent and has so much to offer, from the bustling metropolis of São Paulo to the vast Amazon region.

I visited Brazil with some friends back in 2016, during the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. We had a great time and I can´t wait to explore other parts of the country.
