It will definitely take a stretch of trips just to get to know this this South American pearl. I finished my copa tour last year in Marajó, the island of bulls—it just might be an eternal highlight for me.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

    Real Gabinete Português de Leitura

    There are few places in the world, which I have visited because of one pictures I have seen of it. Such a place is the Real Gabinete Português de Leitura. A colonial library in the centre of Rio. A couple of years ago I was intrigued by a massive grand format picture from Andreas Gursky. He is one of the most famous photographers of our time, he surely is the most expensive one. His technique is to manipulate and enlarge pictures. His topic is the gathering of large groups and the enhancements of architectonic structures. He also chose the Gabinete as a sujet and that was, why I went there.

    Edificio Itália Grandest View on São Paulo

    While Rio de Janeiro is the sunny shiny magnate for tourists São Paulo is rather a financial and business center for the upcoming state of Brazil. That means that some museums only have displays in Portuguese and it’s rather hard to find a decent postcard. But the magic of São Paulo happens behind doors, in the families, at restaurants, concerts and on the roof. Especially on one roof, on top of Edificio Italia, where you have the grandest view of a metropolis you could ever imagine.
