Hello guys! So as you might have seen it through my Snapchat and Instagram, I’ve been traveling to Brazil for a couple of days !! 2 actually (around 48 hours). I know it ‘s really short and you might wonder why did I only spend 2 DAYS in Rio De Janeiro !!!
The answer is the following one : I’ve actually been invited by one of my parents’ friend who’s a flight attendant/Air hostess. By working for an important air compagny such as Air France, flight attendants can often get free tickets to invite the people they want to. And so, this is what happened, but you’re only allowed to fly for free if you’re flying with the person that gave you the invitation. And so, on a flight from Paris to Rio de Janeiro the cabine crew has exactly a stay of 48 hours before flying back to Paris. This is why my stay was pretty short ahah ! But so much wort it.
It was my first time here in Brazil and we’ve been staying in a 4 stars Hotel on Copacobana (Sofitel) which was really luxurous.
Since I’ve been told to not carry or show off any importante devices such as iPhone, Camera etc because it was risky, I haven’t taken a lot of pictures unfortunatly. But this didn’t stop me from spamming everybody on Instagram with aproximately 10 pictures posted a day !!!
So here is a little sum up of what we have done over those days in Brazil
After a 11 hours flight from Paris, we landed in Rio around 5AM……
Thursday 28th : Day 1
From 7 AM to 10 AM : We checked in in our hotel, and we went on the rooftop to get breakfast as we were starving because we all know food from planes is not the best…
From 10 AM to 2 PM : We put on our shorts and sunglasses and we headed to the Corcovado by taxi !! We actyally got off at the bottom of the hill and then we took this little train which goes all the way up to the top! (the trip was 20 minutes long at 6KM/H and it was so boring…)
Once we got to the top, we stayed there for about half and hour to enjoy this amazing view over Rio and of course over JESUS. After we took a few pictures, we took again the train and we went back to the hotel
3PM to 5PM : We went to the beach ! Copacobana is pretty insane ! But went I decided to go swimming, coulds have appeared and the weather got cold.. and it rained a little bit. So cold that I haven’t gone in the water, so I sat down and ordered a fresh coconut at the bar !
From 5 PM to…. 7 PM : Since it was raining and we were tired because of the long flight and the jet lag, we actually went off to sleep at… 7 :20 PM…
Friday 29th : Day 2
We woke up at 5 AM, it was still really dark so I went on the rooftop to make a Timelaps of the sunset and get breakfast !!
From 10AM to 2PM : We got into a taxi and headed to the Pão de Açúcar. The view from the top was even more than insane, and I really loved it because the aiport was in front of the montains so each plane, once they’ve taken off, were flying really close from the mountain!!
We got some beers and after having spend 2 hours on the top, we’ve decided to come back on the ground because we saw a pretty beach and wanted to go there! So we did once we went down.
From 2PM to 5PM : we got food in a restaurant on Ipanema and then went to the beach, the prettiest one in Rio (according to myself).
We got a little tan and then went back to the hotel.
From 7PM to 10PM: As we tried to resisted against the jetlag, we got into another taxi and headed to a really typical district in Rio, I have no idea where is this and what’s its name but we hung out there and got food again!
No need to say that I felt asleep 3 minutes after we went back to the hotel…
Saturday 30th : day 3 (more or less)
From 8AM to 1PM : As it was hour last hours here, we simply decided to chill and relax, no explorations, no long walks, we just went to the beach, and stayed there for 4 hours.
From 1PM to 2PM : We packed our luggages, and left the hotel with the Air France shuttle.
From 5PM to… the day after : We flew over the Atlantic and landed in cloudy Paris…..
So this is how my trip ended, short, but AMAZING!!!
PS: We missed our connexion flight at CDG international airport so we had to change to an other aiport to get another flight and I arrived at home at 4PM instead of 9AM…
This short trip must have been the most tiring ever, I mean I almost spent as much time on a plane as in Rio ahah so when I got home I overslept… A night of 14 hours was even more than needed.
