Hotels Travel

Sao Paulo, Brazil

My trip to Sao Paulo was a different kind of travel, the type that I tried for the first time… Delivering goods!

Yes, it might sound like a scam but there are start-ups now that will pay you and cover your flight and hotel to whatever country you want, or they need you to deliver what other people from that country bought online, for them to pick up in person!

Beleive it or not but international shipping is expensive as fuck.. so it’s actually cheaper to send someone in person than to deliver them with delivery carriers.. and that’s what I did!
There is nothing illegal about it, I think! I mean no drugs, no weapons, none of that crape.. just random stuff people purchased online from Amazon or eBay and want them delivered!

You stay a week or so, wait for people to come to your hotel for two specific days, you give them what they ordered, and you just chill in the rest of the days.

And Hey guess what! I’m giving you a $10 off coupon code ‘salwa-kisswani’ to Grabr. So you can come and join me here: https://grabr.io/invitation/salwa-kisswani?utm_source=referral_program&utm_campaign=web&utm_medium=copy_link

My trip was a little special, not because this was something I tried for the first time but because I met an amazing local, in face, a Local Brazilain Youtuber who was also working with that company to mention them in one of his youtube videos, and he was my lovely local guide to the secrets of Sao Paulo!

For my luck, I was in Sao Paulo on a Sunday… that means I got to see the Paulista street in action!

The liveliness of the street on the weekend is crazy.. all young and old gather here to have fun, dance, street preform, and shop!! Kinda like times square in New York City minus the cars!!



That perfect Subway…

..

Not to forget the MASP!! São Paulo Museum of Art

To be honest, even the Mall is cool.. and you know me I don’t ever go to Malls… Like never ever!!

And the food… Oh, My GOdddd!! The Foood!!

If there’s something you have to try.. it’s caju juice with no doubt.. that thing is delish!!

Here’s a fun fact for you guys… Did you know that Sao Paulo is a young LGBT hub!!
Yeah!!! More than New York City…

Here’s a really cool gay dance group in the middle of Paulista street doing their thing… Dancing and enjoying life.. and me having a perfect Portuguese accent… Lol



Now, another location than Paulista street is Jardins, which is basically the wealthy area of Sao Paulo…

Yes, it’s a beautiful area but, to be honest, I loved the other side of Sao Paulo… The graffiti, the Art, and Culture worked its magic on me…

Although I didn’t really get a chance to visit the streets myself, the view from the window captured my love… I know! I need to revisit Sao Paulo and experience it for myself!

Since my trip was organized and paid for by the online travel carrier, they had me in one of the nicest hotels.. which is something I don’t usually do when I travel, I always try to travel on a budget, it gets you to truly experience the journey…
but here’s a look at my hotel…

Not sure if I mentioned that, but it took me more than 24 hours to get to Brazil, and it was one hell of a journey with two stops, in Miami and in Manas!! so I was rewarded with a beautiful hotel!!

So when I was at that super cool Mall, my Brazilian friend told me that you can’t visit Brazil without buying a Havaianas Flip Flops and Sandals!! The original ones.

I even got one for my baby cousin… I just couldn’t resist the cuteness!!

My experience with this kind of travel was interesting.. would I do it again? Maybe… Maybe No.. I do see that traveling by myself with my own budget is much better, more flexibility, more days, and a real experience. No luxury, but real adventure, new friends, and a real cultural exchange… that’s exactly what I look for when I travel!
