Now, with 31 countries and over 9 months of backpacking under my belt, it was time to venture to the final continent of my RTW journey: South America.
My first stop would be the continents largest country, Brazil. I took an overnight flight and landed in Rio de Janerio.
At the beginning of my trip I highlighted in a Friday Five that one of the things I was looking forward to most on the trip was laying on the beaches in Rio. Finally, this dream was about to come true.
