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 Bromelia Rio Travel, a Rio Travel Concierge and Swimwear Line. Instead of catching a plane every other week to see the world, now the world comes to me. I have worked with Esquire, Vogue, Elle, and the Wall Street Journal as a Brazilian Cultural Specialist.

The Art of Learning a New Language

Sitting on the beach in a Brazilian bikini with the vocabulary of an infant, I could not help but feel like the epitome of a contradiction. At the age of 33, I was not thrilled to feel like a toddler again.

I loved to…
