January 2016, Denis surprised me with a trip to Brazil (I have the best boyfriend ever ). For a long time we aspired to travel to Rio and finally here we go! We didn’t have much time to prepare, but we did our best to combine ecology and tourism. The program was divided in 4 parts, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, Chapada Diamantina and Praia Da forte.
