Cartagena & Baru

    0
On our side trip to the Caribbean coast of Colombia we spent the first three days in Cartagena.  First we explored by land, touring around Getsmani, Old town and catching views of Bocagrande.  Then we set sail around the Rosario Islands and spent a relaxing afternoon on Baru.  At night we tried all the cocktails and food vendors, after which we attended Bazurto Social Club...

Bogotá, Colombia: Tour D’Horizon

    0
Bogotá is Colombia's sprawling high altitude capital. It's a cool urban city that is protected by the chilly eastern Andean mountainside. Cobbled historic colonial buildings are intermixed with modern high rise developments. With a population of nearly 8 million people this city has everything from working-class barrios to ritzy entertainment districts. All throughout the city are predominant splashes of lush green parks, and high mountain...

On Seeking Paradise and Understanding Who it Serves

    0
I've been on the road with Remote Year for 11 months now. Recently, there have been a number of questions floating around in my head that don’t have answers attached to them. They’re often disjointed and they tend to be in the form of “why” statements. They wiggle themselves into my everyday life and cause me both curiosity and anxiety. Worst of all, they’re hard...

10.2 | Cartegena

10.2 | CartagenaI first heard of Cartagena through Instagram. It’s growing popularity can be credited to next travel destination lists of Conde Nast and Tripsavvy and travel websites of the like. Upon arrival, I could see why.Streets were lined with colonial styled buildings of all colours and colour combinations. Each unit was complemented by large lofty doorways and intricate knockers. Vines and flowers draped over balconies...

10.1 | Guatapé

    0
About two hours north of Medellin locates a small resort town known as Guatapé. There, lies a man made lake, the submerged town of Peñol, its replica town, and the summer home of Pablo Escobar. The ride up was probably one of the most beautiful and scenic drives I’ve seen this year. Rolling hills and glistening waters, Gutapé’s landscape was breathtaking. I enjoyed it so...

10.0 | Medellin

When you tell people you’re going to Colombia, it is often reciprocated with cocaine jokes, Narcos’ references and a disconcerting look for your safety. After spending a month in Colombia, I am comforted by the passion and the friendliness of every Colombian I’ve met. I am inspired by Colombian’s aspiration to change their stigma. I am in awe with this country.The city we stayed in was...

Tatacoa Desert

    0
The area of the Tatacoa Desert is about a six hour drive from Bogota.  It’s main attraction is the sensational stargazing offered by a remote area with little light or noise pollution.  While our first night there was cloudy, the second night offered stellar views and many shooting stars likely due to the perseid meteor showers.  We stayed at the Bethel Bio Luxury Resort.. a...

I am 35 now

    0
I turned 35 last week. I know, I know…not a day over 28. Aside from how well this model is holding up, I am also surprised by the emotions that can still stop me dead in my tracks. Butterflies and sheer giddiness to see someone should end after 25. It should turn into a better understanding of how this will go wrong just like the...

I've decided to take another stab at answering the same questions with the year now under my belt.What exactly are you doing? August 2017: I am NOT quitting my job and...
