Straight off the again of New York got here Rio de Janeiro!
Rio was one thing of an expertise…
So right here’s the factor – the town has a fame for being unsafe nevertheless it additionally has a fame for being one of the crucial stunning cities on the market so it’s simply onerous attempting to determine what to do and what to not do right here.
If ever there was a time to concentrate to native suggestions, this was it. Individuals right here usually are not afraid to level you in the best course, that being stated, you additionally kinda have to know who to ask for stated suggestions so it’s all a little bit of a complicated catch-22.
We stayed on the Emiliano Rio, a spot we just about fell in love with as quickly as I noticed the primary pictures on-line and it was in all probability the one huge a part of the journey that made the largest distinction.
Earlier than we arrived, I used to be satisfied that we must get a driver to take us round all over the place and need to study so many new guidelines about what to do and what to not do, the place and when.
That latter half is kinda true however the concierge on the lodge took the time to clarify a lot to us. Even little issues like when to keep away from Google maps, what to look out for in taxis and Ubers (surprisingly, some taxis will be dodgy right here however Ubers are usually advantageous).
We picked up so many superb suggestions from them alone, which ended up corroborated by Uber drivers, of us at museums, bar and restaurant workers and lots of different locals. It simply made such an enormous distinction!
Anyway, this put up is definitely nothing in any way to do with the lodge. I realise now, studying it again that it kinda feels like it’s nevertheless it actually has nothing to do with them, it was simply one thing on reflection we discovered HUGELY helpful in Rio (we really ended up reserving it twice as a result of after reserving it, we discovered it on one other web site a few third cheaper and needed to cancel the unique reserving and make one other one). If ever there was a metropolis the place reserving the best place mattered, it was positively Rio!
Lengthy story brief, we had a completely superb time within the metropolis (as you may need been in a position to inform from our Instagram tales) and needed to share pictures from that journey. There have been a couple of moments in between the place we positively didn’t really feel essentially the most comfy however fortunately, it was all advantageous and we did our highest to err on the aspect of warning.
As with New York, we figured we’d as effectively do a full vlog to point out what it’s prefer to be in Rio (in the event you’ve by no means visited earlier than – in addition to a small little snippet for Twitter which ought to be up quickly with a possibility to win free flights to Rio for 2) however until that’s out, listed below are some pictures from our time in Rio!
