I had heard a lot about New Orleans but wasn’t sure whether it was the place for me. The two people I knew who had visited New Orleans before told me that it wasn’t really for them, and to be honest, that was almost enough to make me move it to the ‘miss-able’ list when it came to planning our recent US trip.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned after my recent trip to the United States, it’s that taking the path less travelled is always the best option. It’s incredibly easy to always go off the tourist maps and play it safe, but then you see what everyone else has always seen and where’s the fun in that?

Another part of the country that is hard to describe in a short list is the plethora of delicious meals that have been created and shared in Brazil. While there isn’t one specific regional dish, there are numerous distinct regional dishes.
It’s hard to pinpoint just a few things that encompass and embody a country as large as Brazil, but as much diversity as there is, a few experiences and locations still stand out above the rest as true “must-see” spots.
In a country as large as Brazil, it shouldn’t be hard to wander off the beaten path and find something unique and truly Brazilian along the way. However, it can be hard to abandon a large city full of life and excitement to traverse a relatively quiet and isolated path through the smaller and less-touted spots in Brazil.
