Solo travel experience

Brazil is one of the most magical places I’ve ever visited. It resonates so much with me as a person - the music, food, people. Everything is so colorful and warm. I visited Salvador da Bahia, Buzios, Morro de São Paulo, and Rio de Janeiro. I would recommend brushing up on some Portuguese before you go, as it’s not always assumed that people know English. Salvador doesn’t have any nonstop flights from the USA, but you should go nevertheless, Bahia is beautiful - the people, the beaches, the music. I definitely felt safe, but don’t carry your phone around openly or wear any gadgets or flashy jewelry in cities, as this leaves you susceptible to thieves.

Solo travel experience

It was my first time travelling alone. I spent a few days in São Paulo and a few in Rio. It was an incredible journey, and Brazil is a beautiful country with delicious food, great entertainment, and friendly people. I was cautious during my journey for safety reasons, but I never felt in danger (I was with a Brazilian friend and we stayed in safe places). I can't wait to return and discover more of this country.
