A 'gringa's guide to Rio de Janeiro

When I was very young, I saw Brazil's national team play great football. Since then, I have always dreamed of visiting the country with the amazing beaches filled with happy and lively Brazilians. My expectations for Brazil has always been towering.

I was so lucky to get the opportunity to work at Mango Tree Hostel in Rio de Janeiro. I was not a second in doubt: I was just leaving! I was ready to experience the country that stood at the top of my 'bucket list'.

During the half year I lived there, I got to visit a lot of amazing places in the city. Although I am 'gringa', as they in Brazil call foreigners, I got to know the city really well. I have therefore written this guide to Rio de Janeiro with everything I think you should experience in my favorite city.
