This country hosts to a number of domestic as well as international travelers and is touted as one of the most popular tourist destination in South America. Brazil is the fifth largest country in the world and is known for its tropical islands, rainforests, beaches and colonial architecture. Contributing to a varied field of interests, Brazil has explorers, photographers, writers, foodies, party goers and almost everyone coming down here. Here’s a list of five must-see places for you.

                                                Maracana Stadium

Maracana Stadium

Football, being the most important sport of the country, led to the existence of Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro. Back in 1950 when it was opened, it could accommodate upto 200,000 people and was proudly the largest stardium in the world. Security reasons led to reduction in its seating capacity. It was recently renovated for the 2014 World Cup and can now accommodate 80,000 people making it reach position of being the largest stadium in the whole of South America.

                                                 Amazon Rainforests

Amazon Rainforests

These forests are something that defines this beautiful country. More than half of the country is covered by these rainforests and this invites every wildlife lover, photographers, journalists, researchers, botanists, bird watchers and scientists from all across the globe. This is a must visit place for every traveler and trust me, if you haven’t been here, you haven’t been to Brazil at all. And yes, the Amazon river is pure beauty. Your camera needs to capture the best of views. Go Amazon!

                                                 Iguazu Falls

Iguazu Falls

Iguacu Falls, situated in eastern Parana, the borderline for Argentina and Brazil, is among the most splendid waterfalls in the world. It is said to be wider than the famous Victoria Falls of Africa and Niagara Falls of US.  These falls divide the river Iguazu into two, the upper and the lower. The name Iguazu is derived from two words that mean big and water. It is interesting to note that this spectacular creation of nature can be looked at from the side of Argentina as well as Brazil.

                                                   Ouro Preto

Ouro Preto

This beautiful town clearly depicts the colonial rule with its architecture, monuments and buildings. Ouro Preto that means ‘black gold’ is one of the best preserved towns of the colonial times. Its existence goes back to 17th century when Portuguese used to rule the country. Ouro Preto is an important destination from historical point of view. The churches here have been embellished with gold and are quite popular among the tourists, domestic as well as international.

                                                  Soccer Museum, Sao Paulo

Soccer Museum, Sao Paulo

Since the football fever is high, finishing off this list without the mention of Soccer Museum would be a total injustice to the attraction. The museum is dedicated to the national sport, soccer and is situated under the grandstands of the Pacaembu Stadium. It lists down the history of the great game in Brazil through multimedia divided into 15 themed rooms.

    Both. I have time during the day that is “writing time.” I usually have a general idea of what I plan to write during that time, but if The Muse strikes, I’ll throw over that plan in a heart beat. This goes for blog posts and my fiction. For example, my husband really wants me to write the follow up to a story I completed a few weeks ago, but lately my heart has been in a different area. He doesn’t really get the idea that if I force the story to come it’s not going to be as good.
