Miss A Columnist

Adrienne Erin is an artist turned freelance writer who studied studio art and animation in a tiny town in central Ohio, but has worked in fields as diverse as career development, design, and public relations since. Now she resides in central Pennsylvania, but she takes the train or hops behind the wheel to visit nearby Philadelphia often. She blogs and ghost writes for a number of sites, but you can find some of her work on her personal blog, Pongra.

Her love of travel was ignited by her time spent studying art abroad in Paris, France. Since then, her travels have taken her across France, as far as the Czech Republic, and even to the site of the Chernobyl accident, not to mention more than a dozen US states. She is an avid road tripper, and has loved long distance driving since she first got behind the wheel of her car.

When she’s not on the go, she loves cooking, collage, and obsessing over vintage postcards. She frequently participates in mail exchanges and loves Skyping in French with her faraway friends. Please follow her on Twitter at @adrienneerin.

The second Charitable New Year’s Eve Highlight is Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This bash has set records for the highest number of people to attend a NYE party (over four million) and it’s still going strong.

If you’re looking for the ultimate beach party this New Year’s, look no further. Spending your last moments of this year and the first moments of the next partying in Rio is sure to be amazing. Look forward to a night of dancing, musical performances and the takeoff of fireworks right on the beach. Don’t forget your party attire: wearing white, red, green and yellow (the colors of Brazil’s flag) is supposed to bring you renewal, good health, money and passion in the New Year.

This New Year’s party also has philanthropy in mind. If you choose to stay at the beach-front Sofitel resort where private parties and firework views await you, you will also be helping others. In November, Sofitel announced its fundraising campaign to help rebuild the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan.

WHEN: Tuesday, December 31, 2013. The fireworks begin at midnight.

WHERE: The best place to see the fireworks is right on the beach, but you’ll have to get there early if you want a space! Barges off the shore will shoot off the fireworks.

TICKETS: The fireworks show is free, but you’ll want to check out the many parties, balls, festivals, and bar celebrations before and after the event. Visit Rio’s official website to learn more about the festivities.
