For almost 5 years, I dreamed of visiting Chapada Diamantina in Bahia. Several times, I planned a trip, I said I will go for sure and when everything was almost right, something made me cancel the trip. I had decided that I would end up going on a special occasion. That special moment was New Year’s 2017. Everything was settled to spend New Year’s in Lençóis and when we left Natal-RN, the car broke down early during the trip. I couldn’t believe it. In the end, we ended up going the next day, accompanied by my parents. We arrived in Lençóis on the planned day and each year of waiting was compensated during the days of travelling Chapada Diamantina. What an amazing place! And how much energy this place provides to start the new year! As it was our first time in Chapada Diamantina and we were with my parents, we did a 5-day itinerary, with light to medium level trails.
