I am Anastasia I am a traveler and travel blogger. I am always looking for something new and beautiful. I have lived in Moscow for 8 years, but every day I find some new interesting places. I can't say exactly how my love of Brazil originated in my heart. Probably, I have had it since birth, but Brazilian culture has become a big part of my life. I started learning about Brazilian culture through dancing: samba (carnival dance) and Brazilian funk. I can't say what I like more: dancing or traveling). And then capoeira was added to the list. And this burning mix only strengthened my love for Rio because it combines everything that I love. In 2019, my dream came true. I went to Rio and it won me over. This is not the end. I promised myself that I will dance the samba at the carnival in Rio de Janeiro. Now I am actively engaged. And at the same time, I practice my skills at Brazilian parties, where I met Vita.
I am Vita I am a booking and concert manager of international performers. I organize Brazilian parties in Moscow and all over Russia. My name means «Life». To me, traveling is living, and the most valuable thing is getting new impressions. I love to plan my trips. The main purpose is to see the country “from the inside” through the eyes of locals: to visit non-tourist places, try local cuisine, use public transportation, and communicate with local people. Since childhood, it was a dream of mine to visit Brazil. It seemed like something distant and unrealizable. But dreams do come true! I have already visited Rio 3 times and met a lot of amazing people! I would be glad to share my experience with you!
