Into the Blue | Rio De Janeiro, Brazil | Travelspective


There’s a genuine romanticism the world has with Rio de Janeiro. With the crisp, white sand of Copacabana Beach stretching for miles alongside its turquoise, blue waters, and Christ the Redeemer who sits splendidly above the Corcovado. The words ‘Rio de Janeiro’ translate to mean River of January in English that link in with its colorful heritage. In January of the year 1501, an explorer set sail from Portugal and arrived at a swampy bay mistaking it for the mouth of a river and decided to name it after the month. A heritage as vibrant as its majestic landscape, Rio has long been the Patron Saint of tranquility that pulsates to the beat of a Samba swing in the heart of South America.
