      Beautiful Trancoso

      May 1, 2023 in Brazil ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

      After our time exploring a few countries in South America - Our time spent in Trancoso, Brazil, nestled along the stunning Bahia coastline, has been nothing short of magical. Our beach home became our sanctuary, a place where we reconnected with the soul of this enchanting region and experienced the vibrant energy of the Quadrado. We were excited to show Brad and Christy our home and to have some relaxing beach time!

      Upon arriving at our beach home, we were greeted by the gentle breeze and the rhythmic sounds of exotic birds singing in the rain forest. The beauty of Trancoso instantly enveloped us, with its pristine beaches and lush greenery, creating a tranquil backdrop for our stay.

      The days unfolded at a leisurely pace, with mornings spent strolling along the sandy beaches, feeling the soft grains beneath our toes and dipping into the refreshing waters of the ocean. The Bahia sun bathed us in its warm embrace, casting a golden glow upon our sun-kissed skin.

      In the evenings, we ventured into the heart of Trancoso, the Quadrado. This historic square, lined with vibrant and colorful houses, emanated an irresistible charm. The Quadrado became our meeting point, a place where locals and visitors alike gathered to share stories, enjoy local delicacies, and soak in the lively atmosphere.

      As we meandered through the Quadrado, we discovered quaint boutiques and artisanal shops, offering a glimpse into the rich cultural heritage of Bahia.

      The evenings in Trancoso were filled with a symphony of flavors. We indulged in the region's culinary delights, savoring Bahian dishes that delighted our taste buds with their bold spices and fresh ingredients. Whether it was the traditional acarajé, the succulent moqueca, or the refreshing caipirinhas, each bite and sip revealed a story of Bahia's culinary heritage.

      Craig and I have been traveling with Brad and Kristy for the past month. We started in Columbia, and ventured to Chile, Argentina, and Brazil. We shared many adventures, hikes, road trips, city exploring, art and cultural pursuits, and culinary adventures! It was hard saying goodbye since we spent every day with them during the last seven weeks. Hope we can organize another great adventure!!!

      As we said goodbye to Brad and Kristy, the day after we greeted Craig’s South African sisters: Anne, Meg, and Meg’s husband Allan. Another week in paradise!

      Trancoso - Quadrado hoch über dem Meer

      January 10, 2017 in Brazil ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

      Im August haben wir wegen Regen diesen Stop ausgelassen.
      Jetzt habe ich doch noch die Gelegenheit, mir anzuschauen, wie sich das Örtchen verändert hat, seitdem ich das letzte mal in 2005 hier war. Es ist gewachsen, und sehr chic geworden. Zentrum ist das Quadrado, ein großer Platz mit Rasen in der Mitte, einer kleinen Kirche und hübschen Häuschen drum herum.
      Wir haben großes Glück mit der Unterkunft und freuen uns über Prinzessinnenbetten mit Moskitonetz und ein sauberes Bad.
      Am größten ist die Freude aber beim Anblick der Auswahl eines Buffet Restaurants... Mmmmmm....
