Casa Bromelia Rio - A Travel Concierge giving you ACCESS to the Real Rio de Janeiro

Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, I left the states late in life at 20, for a study abroad in Toulouse France. Having never taken a bite out of the world, I got real hungry. The path soon saw me living in Delhi, India learning Hindi and volunteering with street children. But this unquenchable girl couldn’t get enough of learning the depths of a culture and their language. So for the next several years I called London my home, doing business development for a design firm in Soho. But the routine of the corporate world dulled my wings, where writing speeches for Ambassadors and Politicians in San Francisco and working in dive whiskey bars did not. I thought I was done with the language game, but after a solo 6 month trip around South America to brush up on my Spanish, I fell in love with the land of Brazil. I decided she would move there, so ran home to pack and returned immediately to begin my dream of hosting travelers in a tropical country. I founded and run Casa Bromelia, a Rio Travel Concierge. Instead of catching a plane every other week to see the world, now the world comes to me. I have been featured in Esquire and Elle Magazine as Rio's go-to-gal!

What Brazilian Music is on Our Radio This Week

In Brazil, there is always music playing. It is the fuel for our daily fire! Music is a normal part of the city hum you hear all day long in every corner of this country. In Brazilian culture, there is a natural encouragement to sing out loud and dance for the sake of dancing. There isn't a shame around it, but rather a deep joy that comes from feeling the music. We sing it in the streets, hear it on those small transistor radios as we buy our newspaper, dance to it with our kids in our…

Lauren, you emailed us about one of your blog posts. Was it the one titled "Why I Visited Brazil...?" And has anyone gotten back to you yet?
