What is your home city/country? How long is the trip to post from there, with what connections? How easy/difficult is it to travel to this city/country?

Home is DC. The typical flight route is DC direct to Sao Paulo, with a 4-hour layover where you need all of that time to check in to your domestic flight (it's a pain), then direct to Recife. Under normal circumstances, there are tons of flights connecting through SP or Rio to many destinations. There are a couple of Brazilian carriers who flight direct to Ft. Lauderdale and Orlando (the Disney pilgrimage is very real). - Aug 2020

From here to Washington D.C., there is a direct flight to Miami, then connecting on to D.C., takes about 12 hours. To other points in the U.S. (such as for R&R) it can take considerably longer due to the fact that the only direct flight to the U.S. goes through Miami. - Jun 2014
