Our  new packs are loaded with the simplest of necessities for the ten day trip to Brazil we are about to take. We are taking as little as possible, both in an effort to avoid checked baggage, and to keep mobile  while we are exploring parts of this fascinating country.

The majority of our stay will be at a temple near a National Forest in central Brazil, and the other will be youth hostels on the beaches of Rio. We are soooo excited!

Thanks to modern tech, we will be checked in for our flight before ever leaving the boat. Thanks to our friend Glen, we will have nothing to worry about on the home front, as he will stay aboard with Billy and Chopper while we are gone. Thanks to my (our) parents this trip to Brazil, part honeymoon, part research trip, is really going to happen.

Next post will be from the beaches and jungles of Brazil. Happy Thursday to you too!

How exciting. You know have the best parents... the kind that allow you to forgo the fancy over priced wedding. This will be much more memorable, and you don't have to wonder what to do with a dress that no one else would care to wear.

Wow, I'm jealous! Sounds like an amazing trip ahead. I've always wanted to stay in a hostel. Have a great time!

Diosyou mios! We just got to Rio and are staying in a little hostel on a steep hill in Santa Teresa. Got a bottle of wine and are overlooking the lights of Rio. Life is good, and the Brazillian buses are awesome! I guess this is more of a blog post then a comment but so what? Our blog right? Mike I wish I knew that so that I could ask you all the things we are wondering now, like.. well actually there's nothing.. we are taking things as they come, waiting for the next wonderful thing to happen...
