The more I travel, the more I realize that it’s not about specific countries or even continents. Rather, it’s about the type of environment I am in. I am not a fan of huge cities, and I am much happier in nature or in small towns or medium-sized cities.
Therefore, after two weeks in Salvador (3.3 million people), I will move to Lençóis (11,500 people) tomorrow and stay there until the end of December.
If you think that there aren’t enough things happening in such a small town to warrant such a long stay, I should mention that Lençóis is located right next to Chapada Diamantina National Park. Outside of Brazil, not many people have heard of it, and that’s a shame, because Brazil is so much more than Rio de Janeiro and beaches.
So, for the next three weeks, I will be hiking in landscapes like these, although there have been forest fires raging in recent weeks, so it may look different now.
