Cris, Brazil

Cris wields the cards with her friends when they play the popular Brazilian card game Buraco. This card shark picked up her skills from her Italian grandfather, and allegedly his passion for exploration too. A certified Ashtanga yoga teacher, Cris starts her day with a 5am yoga practice on her rooftop, watching the sunrise over São Paulo. This card wielding yogi is a true trip planning magician, expertly-curating plastic-free and wildlife-friendly trips to the most remarkable places across her home country. Her personal favs? Paraty for its Literature Festival, Salvador for its eclectic and colorful history, and on her bike seat exploring her stomping grounds of São Paulo on two wheels. Toss the guidebooks, we guarantee a trip with this boundary-pushing travel expert will rock your world.
