Ready to fly off to Brazil? Our Passport for Fun flight coordinator, Ally Sloss of the Asheville office (below), goes through the pre-flight instructions, and Martha Barksdale of the Haywood County office celebrates Brazil’s highlights, like the vast, wet Amazon forest and the national soccer team, which has won the World Cup how many times (watch this short video to find out!).
