The Great Migration

The Great Migration

Hello adventurous Virtual Travel Buddies. I’m taking on a new adventure. That would be transferring my WordPress hosted website to a self-hosted one. It’s called migrating and makes me feel a bit like a bird. I’ve never been a fan of birds;...

How Green Was My Valley

Stop what you’re doing! Seriously, stop right now and get on your computer – oh, I guess you’re already on it. Ok then, leave this page and immediately book a trip to Salento, Colombia. You can fly into Periera or Armenia (yes, Armenia, Colombia) or, if you...

It's News to Me

I had to switch hotels today. I didn’t want to as the Estelar Blue is wonderful and equal to what would be a four-star hotel in the U.S. And no, I’m not a rockstar who got drunk, smashed the headboard, threw a TV out the window and was banned from the place. I got a...

Not Quite Lost

Not Quite Lost

Well hello Virtual Travel Buddies. I know it’s been a while and I’m sure you thought I might have been lost at sea (or maybe lost on translation. . . or lost in love. . . or even lost in space). No need to warn Will Robinson, I’ve just been incredibly busy figuring...
