Charmed by the Unknown Brazil

When in Rome, do like the Romans - they say…but what about Brazil?
Surely enough, your typical tourist will linger on the Ipanema Beach, or take active part in the Rio de Janeiro’s Carnaval…that is if you can do the Samba like the locals, or if you really want to embarrass yourself publicly, by exposing your elephantine grace.
A conscientious tourist will have at least a shot of himself underneath O Cristo Redentor, the famous statue of Christ the Redeemer located on the top of the Corcovado Mountain.
A shot together with the gorgeous dancers, on the Sambodromo. One on the beautiful beaches of Santa Catarina…Or perhaps a shot of the lively, rocky nights in Armação dos Búzios, catching up with the richest of the riches…
I, on the other hand have none of the above. I am a fortuitous tourist and a natural born traveler. While sailing, my itinerary is always imposed on me, but sometimes it’s for the best.
So, what can I tell you about Brazil? Something you haven’t already seen; something you don’t already know?
Maybe your paths have crossed the same places, in which case I am very happy for all the wonderful things you’ve seen. But if you’re planing your first trip to Brazil, here are some notes that may help you find places not (too often) mentioned in the travel guides.
