Prainha, rumoured to be the 3rd best beach in the world (it's not, but it´s really nice anyway)
Itacare is a relief after Salvador, it´s a laid back small beach town with enough tourist comforts but without the crowds. The Irish connection of my travelbuddy immediately came into play and in a few days we moved to a very nice hostel run by Irish. Most of the pousadas here are nice if you´re travelling in a group but not to great for solo travellers, Buddy´s hostel is one of the few to fill in that role perfectly.
Basically there´s nothing to do here but lie on the beach, go out surfing and have beers or a bit of a party afterwards. IN the meantime you meet a lot of travellers and some of the locals or people in between, like Switzerland based Silvia with Austrian/German/Brazilian roots. My  Portuguese/Dutch ancestry pales in comparison. Meanwhile I'm working on my Brazilian Portuguese, it takes a while but I´m hoping to have ironed out most of the idiomatic Portugal-Portuguese.
It´s great to mellow out a bit, I love it :)
