Salvador da Bahia | Brazil

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.

  1. it is amazing how some where so far away looks so much like where it came from. this town is a perfect replica of any old town in portugal… if it weren’t for it’s heat and people i’d have trouble believing it.

    • There are striking similarities yes, but these colours are unlike any town I´ve ever seen in Portugal… all those delicious pastel tones with white trimmings, it feels like you´re inside a big bowl of ice-cream sundae🙂 Which matches the tropical heat just perfectly.

    What a cute place! And I absolutely adore the photo with the glasses and the typewriter.

  3. Just stumbled across your blog, and hope one day I can engulf myself in the culture of different places, like it seems that you have done. What an amazing life!

    • Thank you for your kind words! I think the best way to experience a new culture is to just jump right in and go with the flow… easier said than done, especially if you don´t speak the language, but still (in my opinion) the best way to travel🙂
