Chasing Waterfalls

Waterfall

There’s nothing like relaxing in the jungle and today is proof of that. I came down with a cold last night and, between that and the really hard beds of Colombia, sleep was difficult to come by. As I’m in Minca for four nights, which seems a bit longer than most who come (though I […]

Minca – A Gem in the Jungle

Mountain View

After a long day of traveling to Minca, Colombia, I tear myself away from the spectacular view from the terrace of my hotel while I’m shown to my basic twin bed room (though there’s one bed, no twin). It’s simple but has all I need – a bathroom, ceiling fan, and nightstand. No air conditioning […]

Moving to Minca

Minca View

It’s my last day in Cartagena, a city I’ve come to love. The people are friendly, the food is good, and just walking around the streets is entertaining. The only problem is the damn tourists. Wait, perhaps I’m one of them. Well then, it’s most of the other damn tourists. With the exception of a […]

Another Side of Colombia

Remember how I volunteer on each trip and tell you all about it here about the organization on www.Rebel-With-A-Cause.org? Today’s that day. Well, it’s at least half that day. I’ll tell you about the volunteering today and, as soon as I get a chance, I’ll tell you about the great organization I did it with […]

In Search of the Perfect Cup of Joe

Sanctuary

The voting is now closed and we actually have a winner. We knew I’d be heading south but the question was; where? Well, we now know. It was our closest vote yet but, after a tie-breaking extra day of voting, Colombia has narrowly beat out Belize. I’m sure I would have enjoyed the supposedly beautiful […]

Neck and Neck

The voting has just ended and, wow, you’ve been busy this past couple of days! You seem to have spent a lot of time voting. Don’t you have jobs to attend to? Or is this something you do while at work?  I promise not to tell your boss as I do appreciate you taking the […]

Going South – VOTE

VOTING IS NOW CLOSED! Please click here to find out where you decided to drop me. Are you questioning your vote in the last election? Do you feel as if the country is heading south? While I can’t change anything there, I can offer you another opportunity to vote. Not for President, but for a […]

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 out my […]
