Brazil for older, and solo, female travellers

a trip by Judy Staton
From: March 31st 2016
Until: April 24th 2016

This blog will document the three and a half weeks I am planning to spend travelling round Brazil on my own. I'll be following a fairly well-trodden tourist route with overnight stays in Rio de Janeiro City , Ouro Preto (in Minas Gerais), Salvador in Bahia, Lençois for Parque Nacional Chapada Diamantina, then back down to Rio Janeiro State, to Ilha Grande and Paraty before finishing the trip in Petropolis. I've booked all my accommodation ahead, mainly staying in private homes via Airbnb . As well as seeing some fantastic scenery and experiencing aspects of Brazilian culture I hope to meet plenty of Brazilians and get the opportunity to practise my Portuguese - and Spanish, if necessary!
