Rio de Janeiro – Celebrating New Year’s Eve at Copacabana (Brazil)

Categories: Travel reports, South America, Brazil

In the run-up to the world tour, we had thought about where we would like to spend our New Year’s Eve. And on New Year’s TV you can see the pictures of the New Year’s Eve fireworks from Rio every time – and we wanted to see that live 🙂



New Year’s Eve in Rio – the fireworks at the Copacabana

More than 2 million people can be found at copacabana this evening. However, the beach is so huge that there is really enough space and it never got too narrow in our place. Like all Brazilians, we dressed all in white. White stands for the light, the purity of the soul and the good-naturedness. Some say that this is how you start the year cleanly. Others see white as a symbol of happiness. In any case, it’s almost the biggest White Night Party in the world!

A gigantic fireworks display, ignited from boats, bathes the entire Copacabana for 20 minutes in a magnificent sea of colours – and at a pleasant 28 degrees. What a great place to celebrate Silvster. That’s how you like to start the new year 🙂

Starbucks Global Icon City Mug of Rio de Janeiro

We are collecting the Starbucks Mugs from the cities and islands we visit on our travels. Unfortunately, not every city that has a Starbucks store with an own mug. But if the city has an own mug we like to collect them as a souvenir. We only collect city mugs from the "Global Icon Series", which was released in 2008. You can see our complete collection here: Starbucks - Our collection of Mugs from the Global Icon Series

In Rio de Janeiro, of course, there are several Starbucks stores and a really nice cup of the Global Icon series.

All travelogues from Brazil

On our round trip through South America we couldn't miss the country Brazil, which with its huge area takes almost 50% of South America. We had chosen the cities of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, a stay in the Amazon and of course the Iguazu waterfalls as our destinations. A really varied journey through Brazil, during which we could collect many beautiful impressions. Travel Reports Brazil » Rio de Janeiro: Copacabana, Ipanema & Cristo Redentor (Brazil)
