honeymoon in brazil!

the tickets are booked! we are flying to rio the day after our wedding for 2 weeks! a little bit of city, a little bit of giant waterfall and a lot of beach. we wanted to go someone where neither of us had been and somewhere were we could explore and relax. I think brazil will work just fine.

anyone been there? any great suggestions? what not to miss? what food to eat? usually I am in charge of travel as grant doesn't handle online forms and airports quite as well, but he is helping with this trip (he must!) AND he is booking the honeymoon night all by himself. I am so proud of him.

Rulon says learn some Portuguese because very few people know English there!

I just got back from there about a year ago. You will love it! You have to go to Iguacu Falls, which you'll probably have to take a flight there from Rio. Be very careful on the beach in Rio I was sitting right next to my camera and some guy came and stole it, so you've got to keep all your stuff in a bag so people can't see it. Don't miss the carmel and chocolate filled churros, best things ever... We also went hang-gliding in Rio and I would recommend it. Also, don't miss seeing sugarloaf in Rio.

Hi Rachel! My name is Erin and I am a photographer located in Utah..not sure how I came across your blog, could be b/c I was googling brazil or something to help with a cause that I am very passionate about and saw that you are going on a honeymoon to Brazil! First off Congrats on your impending wedding! So exciting! I wanted to email you about an important cause that is happening right now in Brazil, I don't know exactly what you can do to help but I know that at this time "exposing this crime" is the most important so that this young boy can be returned to his father. You can read about it here on my blog: We are trying everything we can to get the word out and make this a top story to catch the attention of the highest officals in the US and Brazil to help us!
All the best,

just looking at that shot of the beach makes me melt... i miss the hot sun (i'm in boston).

doesn't grant know some spanish? or do you? that should help. similar languages. i'm going back to argentina in a couple months--we're hoping to see the iguazu falls too... can't wait to see your brazil pix! (though i hope you spend more time relaxing than shooting : )

so excited for you!!!
