  1. If You someday will visit Brazil and Rio de Janeiro, then do not forget to visit “Little Finland” in Brazil – Penedo. It is awesome place in the tropics. Think that You can swim in a pool and then go to Sauna. Think that You can buy Christmas things with Finnish style and maybe meet Santa also. The best of Penedo is its Club where every Saturday there are dances, Finnish dances. It is awesome to see how Brazilians dance and enjoy Finnish dances. In this post, I tell more about Penedo with videos also.

    I have visited there three times when young.

    Airing national costumes .

    Happy and safe travels!

  2. I love travel bucket lists! I keep thinking about things I want to do all the time. I’ll have to update mine in a while ( in case you’re interested) because I managed to cross off another item. It’s funny how we’re sharing some stuff. Me, too, I want to ride a hot air balloon in Cappadocia!
    Since you inspired me, I’ve added some stuff to my own bucket list. I hope you don’t mind.

    1. Your bucket list looks amazing too! I really liked the African ones. Of course you can take things from my list because I don’t own them. 😀 I will probably add some ideas from your list to mine if it’s okay with you? Thanks for commenting 🙂

      1. Yes, of course. I think travel is a lot about exchanging ideas with others. The more travellers I meet, the more I want to leave on my next trip because there are just too many things to see and do.
