We've got our stuff ready....well sorta! We're only taking a small case each (carry on size) and a small backpack. It's really difficult to try and negotiate buses etc with larger bags. Our plans are to fly to Rio, change planes and fly to Salvador. We have 5 nights there, then there's the ferry to Morro do São Paulo for 2 nights. Then ferry to Valenca to catch the bus to Porto Seguro, 3 nights. Our plans then are a bit sketchy, but we're making our way back down to Rio for our flight home on 3 February.
