Brasil Video Diary


It only took me a few hours in Belo Horizonte with Luiza Barcelos for me to realise how much I needed to document my time in Brasil. I don’t get much time or help to shoot my video diaries very often while travelling, so it worked out perfectly to have a few helping hands to hold the camera for some shots (or simply make me feel like it was safe enough to take my SLR with me everywhere which I sometimes avoid while travelling by myself).

I hope this video shows more insight of the beauty of Brasil, and the incredible time I had there. There is not much more I can say apart from how utterly infatuated I am!

  • Sarah

    Hi Jessica, absolutely love your video diaries! Just wondering where you think you are travelling to next after Australia? xo

    • jessicastein

      Hi Sarah, Thank you!! I’m currently editing another one from NYC that I hope will go down well too, haha. I’m in Australia for the next few weeks to see family, spend christmas here and save some serious cash. I’m not entirely sure what 2013 will consist of as it depends what pops up (Brasil was extremely unexpected!), but I do believe first trip will be back to NYC for FW. Where do you think I should go? Xx

    • jessicastein

      Hi Sophia, thank you so, so much. I always hesitate thinking if it is worth doing a video diary as they can be a bit tricky while travelling, and time to edit after etc but comments like this truly make it feel so rewarding that I did. I’m so happy to share a piece of Brasil with you! Xx

  • Caroline

    What a great video! Infortunately I couldn’t see you in Brazil! But you’ve described my country very well! Xoxo

    • jessicastein

      Hi Caroline, You’re so blessed to be from Brasil. Unfortunately I didn’t get to see as much as I would like to as I was there for just a short period, but I’m hoping to get back one day soon and hopefully see you there! Jess x

  • This gave me chills! I just want to go travel all over now with my camera! 🙂

    Hi there – fabulous video! I’m actually going to Rio in January and lucky enough to be staying at the Fasano! Can’t wait! 
    What is the name of the song in the video? I love it. xx

    • jessicastein

      Aren’t you a lucky duck! So wish I was going again. And Fasano is incredible. Try their Strawberry Caipvodka’s while you’re by the rooftop pool, I didn’t get much time to enjoy swimming but the cocktail and sunset was out of this world. The song is ‘November Skies’ by Tomas Barfod. Let me know some tips when you return! Safe travels Xx

  • Aimee

    Hey Jess! I heard this song on Zanita’s blog a few weeks back and was listening to it non stop at work to keep a smile on my face 🙂 After I seen your Europe video diary it gave me some serious inspiration to document a road trip I did from Victoria to QLD and back along the coast. I thought this song would be perfect for it and yet again after seeing this amazing post from you I am so excited to complete it! You bring out so much creativity, inspiration and happiness in me. Thank you x

  • Beautiful! you should have your own show 🙂

    • jessicastein

      Ah… haha…. wow I wish I could have my own travel channel! I would absolutely love to introduce my readers to cities and countries, advising on where to stay, what to do and where to shop etc. If only in the perfect world I had someone to travel and film with me, and somehow fund it! A girl can dream 🙂 X

      • Who knows maybe you are going to have it in the near future! Your blog is awesome. Your photos are full of engergy it’s fun to watch them 🙂

  • Ania

    amazing video! I love the fish-eye effect 🙂 it’s such a nice memory, you’ll probably watch it many many times! great job with putting it together ! xx

  • Dear Jessica, your video dairies are so inspiring to me. Such beautiful shots with such nice songs! When seeing them I can’t wait to go travel. Unfortunately it’s so expensive. I can’t imagine how thankful you must be for having all these opportunities to see the beautiful things the world has to offer. Please make some more video dairies! 

    X Shannen,

  • I have been dreaming about South America for a looong time, however am just needing to save a little more to fly there. I was hoping to go 2 years ago but didn’t have enough money, only had enough to go to Fiji 😛
    Your videos and photos make me so jealous! It must’ve been amazing!

    • jessicastein

      Hi Leanne, I had enormous wanderlust for years and years before I ever went overseas! Huge kudos to you for being able to be disciplined enough the save for Fiji even… because I’ve had a taste for travel I save every cent for it but even my immediate family have never really had the chance to. Keep saving and being determined to get there because I promise it is absolutely worth it, even if a few years away. If you ever need advice for anything travel related please feel free to email me directly. Jess x

  • SP

    Thank you for sharing Brasil with us!!
    You are a beautiful woman who deserves a beautiful lifeI hope to be like you and be blessed with the first of travel

    Your video is amazing, you have an amazing future ahead!
    Never stop smiling (:


    PS.. I would love if you would share some of your favorite songs with choose the best ones!!

    • jessicastein

      Hi SP, wow what an incredible compliment, thank you so so much. Feedback like this genuinely makes all of the homesickness, hard work and sleepless nights worth every second! This song choice was influenced by my friend Zanita who has great taste in music, but I might add some details of my playlists soon if people would find that interesting at all? Haha. I love music but moreso the feeling some particular songs evoke while I’m on a plane heading somewhere new, and that song will forever remind me of these moments where I just ‘go with it’. Xxx

  • This is so beautiful thank you! Every time you or Nicole go to another interesting place i just at it to my future itinerary. I loved the europe video and i am super excited for the NYC one!  xx

    • jessicastein

      Hi Hayley, How have you been? I’m back at home for a few weeks now! Thank you so so much, so happy to share a piece of travels and hopefully inspire someone to visit their when they get a chance. NYC video is slowly coming together… luckily the Coast is so quiet I can actually catch up on some work these days! Hope you’re well, Jess x

      •  Aw i am great thank you, and thanks to you i am hoping to to student exchange for a semester in NYC in 2014! I got to visit Paris, Venice, Sorrento, Rome, Salzburg, Ypres and Munich this year and have caught the travel bug BAD and i do think your beautiful blog is part of it hehe. Hopefully you can catch some really sun instead of these overcast muggy days, enjoy your time off xxx

I am blessed to travel with my guy all over the world and desperate for Rio to be on that list in 2013, all thanks to those out of this world pics you took and now this overwhelming video, it’s beyond anything I could’ve imagined! We celebrate Christmas in NYC this year, I know you adore that city and from one obsessed (wannabe New Yorker) to another, it’s such a delight to just even share that. Looking forward to many more posts Jessica. xoxo

    Quand la mariée a
    choisi les fleurs qu’elle veut pour son bouquet, le fleuriste peut ajouter
    des multiples de fleurs en vrac pour la fête de mariage. Les fleurs fraîches
    sont tout à fait charmant à utiliser, et ils ajoutent parfum. Vous pouvez
    utiliser des fleurs de soie, aussi, si la mariée approuve. Je vais
    commencer au milieu et je vais juste utiliser peut-être, mon, peut-être
    environ deux sections pouces, je vais juste faire avec mes doigts, je ne vais
    même pas à utiliser un peigne. Et ce que vous faites, robe
    de mariée dentelle
    c’est que vous le tordre, de revenir, de façon
    très lâche, mais vous ne le tordre quelques centimètres, revenir en arrière.
    Parce que si vous voyez de côté, ce n’est peut-être deux ou trois pouces en
    arrière et puis, vous épinglez en place. Matérialiste? Oui. Prendre
    part à des vacances trop commercialisé? Peut-être. Mais égoïstement, je ne
    m’inquiète pas. Rencontre veuf est également difficile. Il existe des livres
    entiers sur ce sujet. Il est intimidant pour dire le moins. Ma mère a fait
    environ 30% de ma garde-robe. Mes sœurs et moi-même en obtenir un nouveau
    Robe école de porter le premier jour de l’école, et une robe de Pâques pour
    (vous l’aurez deviné) de Pâques. Il est rare que ces robes soient achetés en
    magasin. La longueur de la couture extérieure est de 18 pouces, qui
    mesure à la plupart des longueurs de boardshort sur le marché. The North Face
    a robe
    de soirée grande taille sur mesure
    ajouté une petite poche pour
    accessoires à l’avant sur le côté gauche, qui ressemble évidemment un peu
    plus petit que le type peigne poche de cire se trouvent normalement sur le
    côté d’un boardshort. L’Overboard des femmes qui sèchent rapidement, tissu de
    Shearwater en nylon, le même matériau utilisé sur leur vraie affaire
    Overboard court.. Un pilier de plus de 50 ans dans le centre
    d’Omaha, le Homy Inn est régulièrement apparu sur les listes des meilleurs
    bars en Amérique. Les clients du bar sont un mélange de jeunes et moins
    jeunes, qui viennent à l’Homy Inn pour son atmosphère paisible et une grande
    sélection de boissons. Le bar dispose d statues aléatoires et les cartes de
    baseball collés sur les murs, offrant un bar de quartier dans le vrai sens.
    Je vais commencer au milieu et je vais juste utiliser peut-être,
    mon, peut-être environ deux sections pouces, je vais juste faire avec mes
    doigts, je ne vais même pas à utiliser un peigne. Et ce que vous faites,
    de mariée dentelle
    c’est que vous le tordre, de revenir, de façon

    Hey Jessica! This has inspired me even more to visit Brasil, it has always been very high on my list. I love following all of your explorations, I live a very similar lifestyle but am in earlier stages of documenting it at xx Happy travels, can’t wait to see where else your end up!
