Hang Gliding in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Today was my last day in Rio and to end my trip I decided to try hang gliding! Instead of booking through a travel agent, I went direct to the source. I took a cab to the São Conrado neighborhood of Rio where they have a hang-glider pilots club. In the parking lot I [...]

The 2011 King of Brazilian Beer Competition

Long time readers of the GetFoxy blog might remember my Brazilian beer competition from 2009. Well, two years later, we’ll be sampling new and hopefully improved Brazilian micro-brewed beers! Even more exciting is the variety in this years challenge, a few wheat beers, a couple of ales and a Brazilian IPA. It’s great [...]

Dani Bartnicki and the Itaipu Dam

Today was a day of surprises.  I woke up with plans to go visit the Itaipu dam on the recommendation of a girl I met on the bus yesterday (she was heading home from work and I was heading to my hotel from the Argentinean side of the Falls).  Her name is Dani and she’s [...]

Iguazu Falls – Day 2 – Argentinian Side

An All Day Affair Of Fun In The Sun

I woke up this morning just aching to have some fun.  Not just lie out under the sun and watch the waves crash kind of fun, but something more energetic… Maybe take out a dune buggy, do some jet skiing, motorcycle riding or ideally, some kind of adventure. 
So I hit the lobby of the hotel where [...]

Eatin’ Good in Porto de Galinhas

Yesterday I jumped on a bus back to Recife.  When I arrived I tried to check into a hotel first thing but they were booked up.  I tried another hotel, same thing.  At the third hotel I asked the front desk clerk why there seemed to be no availability and he told me the largest [...]
