It may have been a cloudy day in Rio de Janeiro, but standing at the top of Sugarloaf Mountain looking down at the city’s iconic landscape, the view was still jaw dropping.
We spent a while wandering around, pointing out all the sights we could see from the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema with their long stretches of white sand, to the tightly packed favelas with their bright and colourful buildings. I was so disappointed that we couldn’t see Christ the Redeemer through all the foggy clouds and this is just one of the many reasons why I want to make a trip back to this amazing city.
After spending almost the entire morning looking out at the 360 degree view over the city and taking way too many photos, we made our descent in the cable car back down to firm ground and the fanatic football fans who were partying at the bottom waiting for the day’s next World Cup game.

Such a great scenery 🙂
So much fantastic scenery in Rio 🙂
crikey! I would freak!
Not a fan of heights?!
Wow, your view is way better than the one we had – I couldn’t even see my hand in front of my face! Still, always a good excuse to go back 😉
Oh no really?! And I thought it was bad when we were there! Any excuse will work to be honest!
what a great view and great pic
Rio has some stunning views from up high 🙂
