Brazil is one of the tour haven countries. It has numerous travel spots. As a solo traveler, I once traveled to Rio De Janeiro beach in Brazil. Rio beach is one of the most popular places for national and international travelers. It’s an awesome beach, but I had some extreme misfortune and lost my wallet.
It was a sunny day in Rio De Janeiro. I wanted to lay on the beach to produce vitamin D in my body. I was enjoying the sea waves and feeling inner peace. Some cheerful clamor of other tourists was whispering in my ear.
Suddenly a guy came to me and introduced himself as a tour planner. He was very informative and smart. I was listening to his tour plans and asking for some suggestions too. His offers were very lucrative at a cheap price. Usually, people don’t come and talk like this. However, I had been trying to find some more exciting places to explore.
By the way, I left my wallet and cell phone just beside me. After a while, the man left the place. I started to think about my next trips again. A bit later I noticed that my things were no longer on my side. Maybe someone came silently and stole my stuff from the other side when I was busy with the tour agent. I am not sure but, most probably it’s an organized thief group.
Things went by very quickly and I had nothing to do that time. Though I complained to the police later on. I guess it’s a sort of problem of the solo traveler. However, I wish you are not going to face such experience like me.
