In Rio :)


So… after much worrying and stressing and running around to meet people and many farewells, I am finally in my first destination… Rio De Janeiro 🙂

I could communicate (and bargain) with the taxi driver even after a 12 hour flight, so I feel quite proud of myself 😛 People here seem to drive fast, and think the road belongs to them – so I immediately felt like home.

Currently staying at a block of blocks of flats, if that makes any sense 🙂 Not very close to Copacabana and Ipanema… but so what – I have enough free time! And it’s a safe residential area!

Off to catch a bit of sun!




About Vanidio

I was born in Athens, Greece, and left at the not-so-tender age of 27 to go to London for a master's degree - or, rather, to go experience the city. I worked there for a while, and after four years I decided to move back to Athens, and got a really boring job with a decent (more than decent) salary. In December 2011 I took a year off work, and travelled to Latin America, Europe, Greece and the Middle East. When I came back, I spent quite a bit of time trying to fit in and organise my "normal" life - or decide that I don't really want a "normal" life. At that time, travelling was more important to me than almost anything else... And then things changed a bit, as I got an offer from a foreign company to organise tours for foreigners in Athens. Dream coming true? Yes! We've done a few tours so far, and hopefully more are coming... let's see! And then things changed even more, as I met a nice, handsome foreigner through one of these tours. And we are now living together, and planning our next trips together :) Life is strange, isn't it!

  1. If you’re in a beach in Rio, there are two things you MUST try: biscoito Globo (Globo crackers) and Mate Leão (iced tea) which are sold everywhere. Best beach in my opinion is Ipanema, but I’m just a mineiro who loves to visit Rio from time to time…
    Have fun!!!
