Oi! Tudo bem?
Rio. After yesterday’s post I got a flood of messages saying how it’s one of their favourite places on the globe. It’s pretty special. The culture, weather and views are amazing. It reminds me a bit of Bali…kinda like a city beach like Bondi…but has qualities of Hawaii.
6.5 million people live in Rio De Janeiro. It’s much bigger than Sydney. Everyone here is excited about hosting their first Olympic Games later this year. Hopefully it will give the local economy a nice kick start, as the country has been slowing down lately. If you are flying here from Sydney for the big games, getting to Rio has never been easier from Oz. Air New Zealand can fly you the whole way – check those bags in and don’t see them until you arrive in South America. Sydney to Auckland (3hrs flight), Auckland to Buenos Aires (12hrs flight) then pop up to Rio (3hrs flight). My tip – splurge on premium economy seats and you’ll score semi-business class. Trust me. It’s awesome. More Info
