Coming for Australia we have a pretty high standard when it comes to beaches. Out of all the countries, we’ve travelled in South America Brazil definitely has the best beaches. Plus, there’s over 2000 to chose from includeing the worlds longet beach. And the temperature is just perfect for swimming or surfing in just a bikini.

Brazilian surfers at home don’t always get the best rap. But after spending a good amount of time Surfing in Southern Brazil they are not as bad as everyone makes out. The surf can get busy, there’s thousands of people that love to surf in Brazil but I found most people to be really respectfully, and in fact much better than the surfers in Peru. You just can’t expect someone to let a wave go past or give one away when it does get busy.
There’s the world famous 4 day fiesta that is Carnival – the world’s best street party. But, I really love Brazilians and their day-to-day culture. Everything they do, they do with great passion. Just go and watch any football match to see for yourself.
BBQ’s are serious business.
I thought we Aussie’s loved a good barbie, but after spending a few months in Brazil I now understand that we have a lot to learn. A sausage on a piece of bread and some chicken kebabs just wouldn’t cut it here. The best part about a Brazilian churrasco is that everything gets carved up and passed around to share.
