Today almost anywhere you look on the internet, you will find leads or links to travel blogs but why do so many people write these travel blogs and is it something that we should all be doing?
Well the reason why so many people do write travel blogs is because it can be fun, it can assist you in making more trips, it can make you money and it can also introduce you to new friends that have similar interests.
Let’s look at the fun part first. If you like to travel, you will probably do so as often as you can afford but, as you will probably have found out already, any trip that you go on has those moments when you are not sure of what to do, perhaps you are at a beach resort and it is raining or you are waiting to go partying but the clubs don’t open till late. These moments, although they may not last too long, could make you feel a little bored but, if you write a blog or a log of your experiences, the time it takes to write takes up those otherwise boring moments ensuring that your whole trip is fully active and thereby more enjoyable. Having the log or blog of your experiences on a trip is good anyway as you may otherwise forget people, places and all the things that you do.
Why I say writing blogs may assist you in making more trips is because once you are fully established in the travel blogging community, you may see plenty of blogging competitions that could afford you free trips to places. Obviously people in the travel industry want their names mentioned as much as possible in the hope that that will increase their business. One of the ways that they can ensure their name is seen is by it appearing in a popular travel blog. Obviously they know with which type of writer that they would prefer to have their name associated with and so they offer packages for who they consider to be the best blogger.
Although a travel blogger can make money, it is very doubtful that they will at first or even make any money of consequence even after a year but, if they write well and consistently, people will approach them asking if they can pay to be mentioned on their blogs or even just to advertise on the blogger’s page. Over time this money can build up and eventually be enough to allow you to take an extra trip each year.
You meet new friends because there is a large community of people that write these types of blog and all you have to do to get acquainted with this community, is to start writing your own travel blog. One of the advantages of joining this community is that they all share your love of travel and although you thought you knew everything about it, from them you will learn that there is a lot more to travel than you had thought.
There are a multitude of unique experiences that can be afforded to a visitor to the country of Brazil. Brazil is ranked fifth among the largest countries in the world and its population is also the fifth largest in the world and although the unique experiences that the country can offer may not be particularly new to Brazilians, they are new to many of us. Probably the first unique experience to mention is probably the most famous one, standing next to the statue of Christ the Redeemer and gazing over the beautiful city of Rio de Janeiro. This 95ft statue stands atop the 2,300ft Corcovado Mountain and offers unique views across the city to the magnificent beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema where people enjoy the golden sands.
Another unique experience that Brazil offers is an opportunity to witness some of the abundant wildlife that exists in the Amazonian rainforests. The Amazonian rainforests account for 10% of the world’s total rainforests and so the diversity of life that exists in those forests is mind boggling. A visitor can observe some of the wildlife by visiting the Amazonia National Park. This park is gigantic having an area of more than 900,000 ha but as there is no accommodation available in the park itself, visitors return to boats close to the park at night.
Iguacu Falls offers another unique experience. These are waterfalls that are twice the size of the more famous Niagara Falls and have a quantity of water that falls over them which is estimated to be, in the rainy season at least, upwards of 450,000 cu ft. per second. Horseshoe in shape these magnificent falls offer an experience which is both awe inspiring and beautiful, especially if viewed from a helicopter that is available for hiring close to the falls.
Among the best things to see in brazilis the Pantanal which is yet another unique experience. The Pantanal is the largest expanse of fresh water wetlands in the world and has its own, often unique wildlife to observe. Although a visitor here may be able to catch a glimpse of a Jaguar as the region is known to have one of the largest Jaguar populations in South America, they will certainly catch more than just a glimpse of one of the millions of Caiman that populate these wetlands.
If wildlife and ecosystems aren’t really what you want to visit whilst on vacation, perhaps a visit to Ouro Petro is more to your style. This is a town that has probably kept its Portuguese colonial elegance better than any other town in Brazil, mainly due to local laws prohibiting the building of new buildings that do not comply with strict historical styles. Walking through the hills of this town which prospered during the Brazil gold rush of the 18th century, you can see the magnificence of the Portuguese architecture in the houses, bridges and fountains as you pass them by and try and envisage what the town must have been like in those gold fever years.
