Transportation, accommodation and practical matters

Our official part of Aalto on Waves has come to an end and what a journey it has been! On behalf of all the participants and organizers of Aalto on Waves I would like to take this opportunity to warmly thank TripBrasil travel agency and especially Juha Paltila, CEO of TripBrasil for the great service that we have enjoyed in the organization of accommodation for 100 people both in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, as well as bus transfers.

I have been collaborating with Juha for many months starting in Finland and he has been extremely attentive to the various needs, requirements and changes that a project of this size has from budget to location and safety. It was very important to have everyone accommodated in the same place in order to continue with the discussions and project work that we had started during the cruise, and despite not being an easy task we have been very pleased with Edificio Jucati in Rio and Hotel 155 in Sao Paulo that Juha negotiated for us.

I would also like to thank our guide Maija Vartia who welcomed us at the Rio port with her interesting stories and useful tips and also accompanied us on the bus ride from Rio to Sao Paulo. Thank you TripBrasil and have a safe journey Aalto on Waves participants whether it is home or travelling further!
