The Eras Tour: A Love Journey Across the Continent

Unable to afford attending Taylor Swift's concert in the US, I decided to transform my $320 ticket to her Brazil show into a romantic getaway with my boyfriend, worth a remarkable $2,100.

Turning my $320 Taylor Swift ticket into a $2,100 Brazil trip with my boyfriend since I couldn’t afford to see her in the US.

Ah, Taylor Swift! The queen of pop, the maestro of melodies, the enchantress of emotions. I’ve been eagerly waiting for her Eras Tour. But alas, my dreams of attending the tour in the US were shattered. The only tickets left were unbelievably expensive. My powerful index fingers, trained by years of Gmail-refreshing, weren’t fast enough to secure me a spot in the front row. Oh, the agony!

But fear not, dear reader, for every cloud has a silver lining. As the tour began and snippets of Taylor’s electrifying performances went viral, my boyfriend and I couldn’t resist the siren call. Every stunning dress, surprise guest, and viral moment beckoned us across the void, demanding our presence.

And so, when Taylor announced her Latin American tour, we seized the opportunity with both hands. It became a matter of where we’d be seeing the show, not how. I, hailing from Virginia Beach, Virginia, and my boyfriend, residing in Lima, Peru, found ourselves with the flexibility to work remotely.

Imagine the thrill and excitement as we planned our journey, ready to embrace the adventure of a lifetime. We scoured different Latin American cities, waiting desperately for an opening. Buenos Aires, Mexico City, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro – we faced disappointment at every turn. But then, a glimmer of hope emerged. Swift announced additional dates in Rio, and miraculously, we made it off the waitlist.

With hearts pounding, we purchased VIP “All Too Well” tickets, even though my boyfriend’s wallet protested violently. But when destiny calls, who are we to resist? Besides, at $322 each, they were a steal compared to their US counterparts.

Now, our journey to see Taylor Swift became something more than just a concert trip. We decided to make it a grand adventure, exploring the vibrant landscapes of Brazil. I, bound by visa restrictions, embarked on a thrilling flight to Florianópolis, a magical island brimming with scenic hikes, bustling nightclubs, and mouthwatering açai booths. Meanwhile, my boyfriend joined me later, and together we basked in the sun-drenched beaches and worked remotely in the charming Floripa coworking spot, We Cowork It Out.

But our adventure didn’t end there. We couldn’t contain our excitement as we boarded a flight to Rio, eagerly counting down the days until we could witness Taylor Swift’s mesmerizing performance. With the expenses of flights, accommodations, and even a Thanksgiving trip back to Virginia factored in (thanks to the wonders of a travel credit card), our working vacation was estimated to cost around $2,100. A small price to pay for an unforgettable experience.

And let us not forget, dear reader, the pièce de résistance of our trip – the VIP tickets. With those precious passes in our possession, we were guaranteed a spectacular view of Taylor’s sensational concert. Our wallets might whimper now, but in the grand scheme of things, they will surely forgive us.

So, off we go, on a love-soaked adventure, chasing melodies and creating memories. Join us as we embark on The Eras Tour, transcending boundaries and basking in the magic of Taylor Swift’s music.
