Salvador Brazil in Photos

Salvador Brazil Arrival

Traveling to Salvador, Brazil was a once in a lifetime experience that gave me the opportunity to see and experience a different side of Brazilian culture and history.

I ate, I explored and I took a lot of photos of Salvador in the process. Here are a few of my favorite snaps from a week in the Northeastern city of Salvador da Bahia, Brazil.

To get a behind the scenes look at the sites and sounds, including all the street food, capoeira lessons and late night Forró dancing, check out the first episode of “Travel Deeper Brazil” from Salvador, Brazil.
