"THE BRAZILIAN TRAVELLER" ThiagoRamos's Profile

ABOUT ME

Hi everybody!!!

I´m a brazilian guy born in São Paulo, the biggest city in Brazil. When I was 9, I moved to Sorocaba, which is quite a big city too (580.000 inhabitants), 100 km from São Paulo. It´s a very dear town to me and my parents still live there.

When I was 18 I moved back to São Paulo to study Law. I graduated in University of São Paulo - USP and I´m still living here. It´s a crazy town, full of life and in constant movement. Amazing nightlife, excellent restaurants and maybe the most important cultural center of Brazil, with many cinemas, theaters, museums etc. People usually think of São Paulo as a business center, which it really is, but the city is also a great place to spend a few days as a tourist. Believe me: give Sampa a chance and you won´t regret.

FAMILY TRIPS TO EUROPE AND CHILE

When I was a teenager I´ve been to Europe 3 times with my family. My father is a History Professor and I think he´s the one who sowed the seed of travelling in my heart. Now I´m addicted to it!!!
We´ve been to Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Switzerland and Great Britain. I hope I can visit all these places again before I die...

We have also been to Chile, where I could see the snow for the first time. That´s something we don´t have here in Brazil, so it´s very easy to meet people who have never seen the snow. Funny thing.

I´ve been lazily working on scanning all the pictures of these trips, but it´s sooo boring!!! Unfortunately, I´m slowly realizing that printed pictures are corpses waiting to be buried. Sad for me because I´ve always loved them.

I´ve really enjoyed these trips with my family, but, honestly, it´s certainly not the same thing!!! Going on your own and paying your own bills is a different story...

EASTERN EUROPE 2005

Me and a friend started in Romania (Bucharest, Sinaia, Brasov and Sighisoara), went to Hungary (Budapest, Eger and Siófok), then to Austria (Vienna only), to the Czech Republic (Prague, Cesky Krumlov and Kutna Hora) and, finally, to Poland (Warsaw, Krakow, Wieliczka and Auschwitz). Crazy nights in Bucharest, Budapest, Prague and Krakow... unforgettable...

All the 5 coutries are amazing places!!! The best trip of my life...

PERU 2006

For a brazilian guy like me, visiting south american countries is always cheaper than going to Europe, North America, Oceania, Asia etc., mainly because of the airfares. That´s someting I should do more often...

PERU WAS GREAT!!! It´s impossible to describe Machu Picchu. Even the pictures are not good enough for that. You must go there to understand it...

Cuzco is very beautiful and a great place to have fun. There are beautiful things to be photographed everywhere, the people is so thoughtful and tender and the parties are awesome!!!

BRAZIL

Brazil is a wonderful country!!! Beautiful beaches, unspoilled wild life, history, big cities, small cities, carnival, parties everywhere and people trying to help you wherever you go.

I´m slowly building some pages of brazilian cities. It´s a huge country so it´s impossible to go everywhere (and sometimes very expensive too!!!). My favorite one is Paraty. Please check it out!!

It´s so strange to take pictures in your own city. But I´ve been doing that in São Paulo (SP) and will probably bring you a page about this huge city someday. Believe it or not, I´m beggining to look to a city from a different perspective, which is very interesting...

LATEST TRIPS

I´ve been travelling a lot around Brazil lately, sometimes because I need to, sometimes because I want to and I can. And it´s great!!! Recently, I´ve been to:

Rio de Janeiro (RJ) - for a friend´s marriage and I´ve had an excellent day there with my girlfriend.

Recife (PE) - to pay a visit to a dear friend. It´s a great place to visit, with nice restaurants ans wonderful beaches nearby.

Bueno Brandão (MG) - a tiny little town in the south of Minas Gerais, 165 Km from São Paulo. This town deserves a VT page!!! Nature at its best!!!

Vitória (ES) - for reveillón. It´s the smallest capital in brazilian southeast, 500 km north of Rio. Still dreaming with "moquecas capixabas", the traditional local dish.
