The last stop on our Bahian roadtrip was the capital city, Salvador da Bahia… we took the ferry boat across from Itaparica and spent 3 days in the city. Salvador had been on my wish list for a very long time and it´s always a bit of a strange experience finally arriving in a place that you´ve dreamed so long of visiting. Of course, it´s never the same as you dreamt it, these things never happen when or how you expect them to… I had envisioned a smaller city, not so busy and certainly hadn´t expected to see as many tourists. We had expected that Salvador would be the highlight or our trip but Boipeba beat it hands down… and that right there is why I love travelling so much. You can plan and organise and book everything ahead of time and inevitably be disappointed by things not being as you expect them to, or you can go with the flow… make decisions based on whether you´re having a good time (or not) and discover incredible places that aren´t in the guidebook. Bahia blew my mind and for all the reasons that I hadn´t expected it to… I will definitely be back.
