Hey guys,
I've 5/6 weeks and about 4000 euro to spend in July and August. I'll be going solo, but can't decide where to go. Top of my list at the moment are Brazil and India. Has anyone been to both? What would you recommend? I love new cultures, tasty food, sport, beaches, nature and an odd drink or two every now and then...Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated!

I think both places sound lovely but Brazil would be my first choice. Its got a carnival atmosphere, the people are friendly, and lively.

BRAZIL is definitely better.

Love India, we've been there twice but July and August is the height of the monsoon there so it won't be very pleasant to travel unfortunately. Been to Rio and loved it there, it's quite expensive though, we spent about £50 a day for the two of us in Rio. We would have liked to have seen more of Brazil but didn't have the money to!

Probably Brazil would be a better choice for the time of year.

If you go to northern India, you'll be mostly out of the monsoon. July and August put you in the perfect months for Himachal Pradesh the Spitti valley and into Ladakh which is awesome. You can even do a full loop and carry on round to Kashmir. Despite what some scaremongers will try to say, its quite safe and an amazing part of India.
