My Brazil & Argentina Adventure !!

in Haveyoubeenhere2 months ago (edited)

In this blog i am going to take you back a little to one of my highlights of the good days of traveling which we are probably all finding that quite difficult at the moment with this still ongoing Covid , so let me take you back to 2014 when it was easy just book a flight jump on and enjoy that freedom , on this adventure i found myself in Brazil after a 20 hour flight in total from Sydney , Australia.


One of the most famous beaches in the world Copacabana Beach in Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

We were here in Brazil not only for the sight seeing but also because we wanted to see the street carnivals that Rio de Janeiro is so famous for. These Carnivals that are held here in Rio de Janeiro every year is one the grandest holidays in Brazil, drawing millions of people from all around the world , it's street parties go on for four days of music and dancing.


Always good to have an excuse to dress up. Like country that understand hats and silly headware!

Rio de Janeiro is Brazil's second largest city and is know as a colorful vibrant city not only for it's carnivals and samba music but for it's natural settings and beaches. The city is also known for its sprawling shanty towns.

We even made it over to Salvador city in Brazil which is the capital city of Brazil it's in the northeastern state of Bahia and is known for its Portuguese colonial architectural designs. Beautiful cobblestone alleys opening up onto large squares colorful buildings and many beautiful churches.

'Portuguese paving', one of the little things which makes Rio so distinctive and interesting how much it pops up in other places in Brazil.

After having two glorious weeks in parts of Brazil we were flying out to Argentina to spend two weeks there before heading back home to Australia. We were not going to be spending to much time in the city areas as we were more interested in going out to see the Cataratas Del Iguazú, Misiones, on the Argentina boarder in between Brazil.

The Cataratas Del Lguazu waterfalls are found at the border of the Argentine province of Misiones and the Brazilian state of Paraná these are the largest waterfall in the world and i thought the Niagara Falls were these were amazing and breathtaking to see they had a drop of about 200 meters it was mind blowing.


One the most magnificent things i have ever seen. Viewed either from Brazil or Argentina, and best from both!

Then from here we when over to Salta city which is in the north west of Argentina, Salta city the landscapes reminded me a bit of Red Rocks but only it had natural green valleys and vineyards here we did a bit of hiking through the rugged natural landscapes and mountains.


It was absolutely a magnificent part of the world.....

Thank you @choogirl and @pinmapple team for the Honorable Mentions in Daily Travel Digest #1080.

Wonderful memories of an amazing trip @kohsamui99, at least we have the memories while this pandemic holds us at ransom not so!
Our second wave really is proving to be awful and is getting uncomfortably closer to home as we now hear of friends and family contracting this cruel disease!
Take good care of yourself:)

Thank you @lizelle it is lovely that we can still hold on to these memories who knows when we will be able to travel with this second wave as you say it's seems worst then before 😥

Thanks for the visit and you take good care yourself 👍

I was looking at the first picture and trying to decide if those little 'ants' are really people.
I have to guess yes they are and it was crowded beach.

I wonder when we are going to see beaches like that again...lol

I hope we do. Who would have thought we need to make bookings to go to the beach on weekends.

It really just sounds all ridiculous in my opinion the whole world is just getting brain washed so the high powers can control us like robots probably the vaccine will have some sort of microchip in it to keep us all under control 😆

I think there's a lot of money lost in controlling like that.

It is really having devastating effects all around the world unfortunately 😥
