When I was planning my 4 months solo trip to South America, there was one thing I A-B-S-O-L-U-T-E-L-Y wanted to do:
Have you been to Brazil recently?
I hitchhiked for 2000km in Brazil. It was one of my craziest adventures in South America and gave me some unique experiences (and even a scar in my leg – funny story 😛).
For this new article, I’d like to talk about how I prepared myself before returning home. During my trip, I heard some stories about people who would go on depression because they didn’t have any plans once they got back home. For sure, that’s not what I wanted.
Have you ever been away for a long time from your friends and family?
I’m halfway through my trip to South America and so far, I’ve learned:

Yesterday, I visited the falls from the Argentinian side in Puerto Iguazu.
Here I am in Argentina. Puerto Iguazu, in Misiones state. I’m switching from my poor Portuguese to my old Spanish (I haven’t practiced Spanish for 10 years!). I’m still confused and continue to say “Obrigada” instead of “Gracias”. I’m proud to say that I invented a new word: “Obrigracias” ^^
On my second day in Foz, I’ve been to Parque das Aves which means the bird park! It’s a park close to the falls, like 5 min walking distance.
