Two best friends traveling the world and sharing their experiences, one packing list at a time.
This goes for anywhere you all travel to…but learn about the local culture and try to interact with the locals. We got to watch people sing and dance in the streets and in parks just enjoying their lives and vibing, and it was such a beautiful representation of what I felt Brazil encompasses, and that is togetherness and warmth (literal temperature and figuratively with the closeness of the people). People are so welcoming and homie there, and I am sure that you will encounter some very sweet people like we did. I seriously was so pleasantly surprised at how kind and welcoming all the locals were when we went.

You want to guess what we didn’t do? Take precaution.

But first, let me give you some background on my situation.
