Problems/Solutions

Cancun-

One problem is that if you don't speak Spanish you wouldn't know what they are saying and end up in the wrong place and get lost.

To avoid this you can ask a tour guide where something is and if they can give you directions on getting there.


Rio De Janeiro-

There are the major problems in Rio as in America like all countries do. Rio has a long history of violence. Also, You can get jet-lag and no one likes that. In order to avoid these things you can stay in the safer parts of Rio and on the plane maybe sleep a little more to avoid Jet-Lag

About the Traveler

I decided to go to Cancun, Mexico to Rio De Janeiro, Brazil because I really wanted to go to the beach because, I like the sand underneath my feat. Which sounds really crazy because I am from Colorado where the weather is normally cold. I really like the color blue so I really like the color of the ocean under a hot sun. I would love to take this dream vacation just to get away from all of the stress and headaches. Just to lay down on the beach without a care in the world.

Conclusion/Reflection

In conclusion taking this dream vacation takes a lot of hard work and planning. You have to plan out every step like what flights you are taking, what hotels you are staying in and what you are going to do for fun once you get there. All of the headaches you will get will be worth it.
