My Travel Story

I would love to visit my best friend/ girlfriend again and spending time/ sharing more memories together. We are both in tight financial situations at the moment because I am in the beginning of building a startup company and she is currently in school. 

We met when I wanted to do something fun while working on the business and didn't have much money to go out or do anything, so I began learning Portuguese. I am very happy that I met her and we both feel very fortunate for each other. I was able to visit her in June because they waived the visa requirement to visit Brazil for Americans from June to September to help encourage tourism during the Olympics. I was able to get support from my family for a quick trip to visit and it was one of the best decisions I've made.

What makes this hard for us is that the visa requirement for both Brazil and the USA if she were to visit is $1,000 in a bank account for 3 months prior to the visa application. This is the biggest obstacle.

I would love to have her visit me but she has not been able to get a passport for starters and if possible I would love to help her with her passport, visa and airfare. If this means I can't visit Brazil than this is okay with me.

I hope that this touches you and that you would consider helping with this and would love to be able to do the same for someone else, when my financial situation is better.

We would appreciate very much any support. May God bless you always.
