We finally said goodbye to Barre Grande – it was kinda tough to leave. We headed up the coast to Salvador and had to make the conscious choice to skip over a few popular destinations. Namely, Morro de Sao Paulo, Ilha Boipeba and Parque Nacional Da Chapada Diamantina.
We can’t see it all with our extremely limited 6 month visit to Brazil. It might seem ridiculous to read that, but 6 months is nowhere near enough time to experience all of Brazil. So, we’ll save those places for the next time we pass through.
Going north, there’s a ferry to Salvador that saves about 100 km of driving, so it’s worth the wait. We were lucky and were the final vehicle allowed on the balsa. No waiting today.
