Vagabonding with Kids: Brazil – Piranha Fishing, Thong Bikinis, and Other Parenting Adventures (and Failures) Abroad
The Turners are on the road again in a raucous continuation of the Vagabonding with Kids series, exploring Brazil from the Amazon rain forest to Rio’s famed Copacabana Beach. But this time the in-laws are along for the ride, and three generations have to survive close quarters, radioactive beaches, and jungle hammocks for accommodations. Armed with little knowledge of Portuguese, but a great appreciation for the Brazilian national drink, the nomadic family finds adventure (and laughter) at every turn.
