Of course, right after the championships ended we were back ‘on earth’ and inmediately realized that the country has so much more to offer. From the Copa Cobana to the beautiful beaches, vibrant city of Sao Paulo and Carnaval in Rio. However, the breathtaking nature of Brazil probably did not cross your mind at first. We are about to change that for you 😉
