      I know what you mean 🙂 I wanted to travel to Brazil for such a long time, and last year it became reality! The food is amazing, hope you’re able to try it soon!

    Brazil is one country I’d love to visit, but as it’s so far away from the UK, I’d have to take a serious amount of time off work to be able to go and do it properly. This post has given me a taster though, so maybe one day soon! X

      Yes, you should definitely bring 3-4 weeks to make the most of your time in Brazil. It’s such a diverse country, so it’s best to stay there for a while. Hope you get a chance to go one day! x

      We’ve only seen a tiny part of Brazil and loved it. It’s such a beautiful and diverse country with very friendly people. Hope you can visit one day 🙂

    With all the travel we’ve done, we’ve never been to South America, at all. I think that has to change. I’m seeing more and more tantalizing posts like this, showing the rich culture, and how much different cities have to offer. We’ll definitely have to start looking!

    I haven’t been to Brazil but your pictures are making me want to go. Must admit though, I’ve never even heard of Porto Alegre!

      Porto Alegre is one of the less known cities, but it’s the perfect stop if you’re heading south to Uruguay. Brazil is extremely beautiful, hope you get the chance to visit one day!

    30 pounds per night for a hostel is not bad especially since it’s a double room! I would most definitely enjoy and spend hours looking at trinkets at those mini-stores on the sidewalk <3

      Yes, such a great value for money! The market was very nice, we had a look around for quite a bit before we continued with sightseeing. Happy travels!

    This is an interesting read. Would you say Porto Alegre is one of the top 10 cities to visit? I’m trying to make a good itinerary for Brazil, for 10 days. Not sure the top places to cover.

      I really liked Porto Alegre, but if you’re in Brazil for only 10 days and not heading south to Uruguay, I would skip it. I highly recommend Rio de Janeiro, Florianopolis and the Iguazu Falls. Buzios is also supposed to be nice if you like to spend some time at the beach (plus it’s close to Rio). If you need any help with planning your trip, let me know 🙂
