Hi fellow travellers!

I'm Denisa and i'm 24. I orginally come from Serbia, but was raised in Denmark and now currently live in London! Phew, that was a mouthful!

Anyway, my passion is travelling and any opportunity i have, i go! I have travelled alone before, but as it seems with most people...when it comes to south america, things can be kind of scary! I've read all these "safety precautions" on the net about being alone in brazil, especially if u are female!

so, i was wondering if anyone will be in brazil around that time? I will start off in sao paulo on the 1st of may until the 7th, where then i will fly to rio until the 16th and then fly back to sao paulo to catch my flight back to london the following day.

If anyone feels like they would like to join a very relaxed, always up for a beer kind of girl to explore the brazilian beauty, then please feel free to drop me a note or thread...or however it is done here - this is my first time writing in a travelling forum!

Alternatively, I would appreciate any tips/advice about going to brazil alone! (A big thank you in advance & it's much appreciated!)

I'm hoping that most of the stuff I read is just media hype.....:0

Safe travels everyone!!

I'm new to this "travellerspoint" and also very new to travelling. But is something I am going to be doing alot more now I hope..
Travelling alone, can be daunting for a new traveller. I would rather travell with someone!
Your trip to Brazil sounds intersesting, I wish to find out more if possible?!

I have planed for travel to Brasil for long time, but yet not done it, that is why wish to go sometimes and not others. I have learned almost all of Brasil in theory. Even I've memorized all google earth Brasil coast. But I'd like for go to a long period, at least 1 month, rent a apartament and stay there. It could be even if a car is rented. I wanna to stay there to know could be the life living there. And I'd like to do when is winter in Europe, because I hate the cold.

You can do the travel I have planned too if you have enought free time. I don't know exactly how I will do, but a thing is sure, I will do by myself, and not a planned 7 days trip. For that I could rent a home o sleep in hostels called pousadas in Brasil. A trip of 1 or 2 month could look very expensive, but really it could cost about 1000€ in total, in Europe you can spend more money staying in home. If somebody is thought to do a trip so or have new ideas then tell me. Too I'd like to buy a cheap home in Brasil, I have a proyect for this in
