“Vilken bra sida du har och du ger väldigt bra korrekt fakta. Keep up the good work, respect.”

Carlos, Jul 2008

“Hi Hakan, first of all let me tell you that your site rocks! Most of the Brasil travel page I have seen deal with the usual Corcovado/Carnival stuff which does not interest me too much. On your site I found immediately information about the things that I am going to Rio for: surfing and jiu-jitsu. Thanks a lot in advance & keep up the good work!”

Frank, Nov 2008


“Your website is so helpful! And you seem like a well-rounded, well-travelled guy which means i can trust what you say. I travel around the world a lot (usually alone) but i havent been to South America yet and Brazil will be my first trip. I will actually be doing this trip with 4 other (male) friends of mine (4 from USA and one from UK). The only issue i see us having is the language barrier since none of us speak Spanish or Portuguese, but hopefully it isn’t too much of a problem. Thanks for your site – it helped a lot!”
