I planned to spend Carnaval (yes, spelt correctly) in Rio and so to get there, I obviously had to go explore Brazil first! Since Iguazu Falls sits 80% in Argentina but 20% in Brazil, it was the perfect location to cross the border. Albeit, in a slightly complicated way. Brazil turned out to be one of the best countries’ planet Earth has to offer! My route went a little something like this:

  1. Florianopolis
  2. São Paulo
  3. Paraty
  4. Rio de Janeiro
