Brazil is a huge country and it has it all - fabulous beaches along it's long coastline; World Heritage preserved colonial towns; a vast array of national parks offering a wide variety of landscapes and activities; and then there's the Amazon, with it's incredible diversity. And of course, there are the Brazilian people - warm, friendly and very alive.

Our site is a travel blog for people 50 and over who like to travel independently - to organise and manage their own trips rather than group travel. We also like to go to places that many older travellers avoid in order to show that, with a little planning and care, you can visit almost anywhere in the world.
