Brazilians Travel Bloggers

We are a Brazilian couple travelling the world, living as expat for more than 15 years and blogging about all fascinating experiences around the world. Today we live between Toronto (Canadá) and South Florida (USA), and we already called home places like Australia and the Netherlands.

We’ve been blogging for more than a decade under the name Mikix (mikix.com) and we are co-founders of the travel blog Viajoteca (viajoteca.com) founded on 2014. Together both blogs reaches more than 130.000 pageviews a month and growing.

As travelers, our focus is on couples without kids, trails & adventure, romance, off beaten destinations, beach destinations, luxury travel and independent explorers and expat life. Besides that we also write about personal experiences as expats in Canada and international exchange study experiences.

We aim helping Brazilians travel more, farther and better to all parts of the world and don’t be afraid to try new and “not-well-know” places.

Each post depicts our own personal view of a particular destination, we focus on being informative, true to ourselves and our readers. We want the world to know how easy and fun travel can be!!! You know, we would like to spread the “travel bug”  🙂

As per ITB World Travel Trends Report, South America was the fastest-growing region in travel 2012/2013.  So Brazilians are basically everywhere…

Besides blogging, Mirella works as an international exchange student agent and Kiko as IT Consultant.
