Inspired by Rio

Rio de Janeiro is a city that bewilders and inspires. Its spectacular setting is the first thing that will grab your attention but once you start exploring, you’ll discover a city of contrasts, but above all else, a city of immense beauty, colour and warm, engaging people. It’s not hard to be inspired by Rio de Janeiro. I recently published a photo essay about the magic of Rio. In the video below, I describe why I’m such a big fan of Rio. Check it out:


Note: my trip to Rio de Janeiro was made possible in cooperation with Lufthansa.

    Haha! Thanks Maria. I’m with you… Astrud’s version is a classic!

    Thanks! Yes, it was a treat to be there just before the World Cup. On second thought, it’s always a treat to visit Rio! 🙂

    Great non-ad, ad. Love the way you chose to show Rio.
    Don’t know about you but I love Astrud’s version of “Girl from Ipanema” best. 😀
