We awoke with an abundance of excitement, as we could not wait to see what Villas de Trancoso looked like in the light of day.
However, before we could explore, our stomachs needed some nourishment. The breakfast offered at the pousada was without a doubt the best breakfast I have ever had in all of my travels.
Lucas and I were the only guests in the entire place, yet they still fed us as though it were high season. We heard the gossip that Bill and Melinda Gates had just left several days before our arrival. I am firm believer in traveling to places during the low season (weather permitting). Not only is it less expensive, but you will most likely have the luxury of solitude.
After breakfast it was time to finally see the infamous Bahia beach, which was the reason why we were there. But first we had to cross over a bridge that made us feel as though we were walking into a secret world.
And when we saw the view and that there was not a soul on the endless beach, it felt even more like a secret world! We could go left or we could go right. The left won and we set off on a photographic treasure hunt.
After several miles, we decided to return to our pousada for lunch and have a snuggle in one of the hammock’s.
We were then surprised by bottle of Veuve Clicquot from some of our friends as a wedding present. Champagne on the beach with my sexy husband in Brasil is my idea of heaven.
Just as we were finishing our bubbly, our pizza arrived. I have talked about this pizza before in other posts and I will probably continue to talk about it in future posts. We were never privy to the ingredients, thus I cannot necessarily explain why it was so life-changingly good, but we ordered it for lunch for the following 4 days.
The next couple of hours were spent sunbathing and before we knew it it was time for yet another meal. On this night we would be dining underneath the stars next to the pool which was illuminated by both moonlight and candles.
Lucas ordered a cheeseburger and french fries, while I ordered a seafood risotto. Again, we were dazzled by the deliciousness.
Unfortunately, we did not have room for dessert, but our day was definitely sweet enough already without it!
