About Ikigai Brazil

Ikigai is a Japanese word and means something like the reason why we get up in the morning, our passion. Everone has it, we just need to find it. According to the oldest and healthiest people in the world, the inhabitants of Okinawa, ikigai is one of the secrets to a long, happy and healthy life. I became inspired by the book of the same name when I first came to Brazil, and instantly fell in love with both the book and the country. I had found my ikigai and my new home!

After a wild ride of years of travelling, residing in various corners of the country, and also making lots of mistakes, I decided to start this blog to unleash my passion and help people like you and me. People who share the same passion: travelling, and the same destination: Brazil 🇧🇷
