Cook Islands: Easier Than You Think (And More Beautiful)

Thursday, December 4, 2008

The Cook Islands may only be 15 small islands, but they stretch across an area of the South Pacific the size of India, and with about 100,000 visitors a year, you’d think they’d be a little more, well, touristy. But think again. Though historically friendly to outsiders (maybe a little too much) these islanders cling […]

How About Trekking 2,500-Meter Mountains In Morocco For X-Mas?

Wednesday, December 3, 2008

Looking for a calm, relaxing spot to spend your holiday? Then forget the Jebel Sahro mountain range. About a day’s drive from Marrakesh, Morocco, and just on the border of the Sahara Desert, these sparse but magnificent peaks offer some of the best winter hikes in the world for those looking for outdoorsy adventure in […]

Colombia Trip: Day Nine (Cartagena)

Saturday, November 29, 2008

It’s not really hyperbole to say that Cartagena is one of the world’s most beautiful cities. What a great place to end the trip. I’ve gone from the breezy, mountainous climate of Bogatá, through the valleys of Medellin, and finally to the balmy Caribbean coast. It’s hard to believe it’s possible to experience so much […]

Colombia Trip: Day Nine (Taganga & Snorkeling)

Thursday, November 27, 2008

Up at six again this morning, for some reason I’m getting up way earlier than I do when I’m not traveling. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that there’s nothing to do in Santa Marta once the sun goes down, and almost way too much to do when it comes up. After […]

Colombia Trip: Day Eight (Beach of the Dead)

Wednesday, November 26, 2008

Well the weather didn´t turn out to be nice until almost exactly when I arrived at the beach, so what else can you ask for? I can´t do too much typing given the sad state of the keyboard that I´m using right now (I don´t even want to know why some buttons are barely working) […]

Colombia Trip: Day Eight (Tinto and Plantains)

Wednesday, November 26, 2008

Well if you’re wondering what this weather phenomenan looks, then click here. It’s not all bad, it’s still pretty warm and from what I’ve heard, it gets almost oppressively hot here so this may be a blessing in disguise. I’ll be heading out to the beach in Tayrona this morning to try my hand at […]

Colombia Trip: Day Seven (Caribbean Coast)

Tuesday, November 25, 2008

This really should have been a shitty day. Am I allowed to say “shit” on the Internet? Anyways, I woke up this morning bright and early, hoping to catch a boat out to one of the beaches in Tayrona National Park. Instead I woke to what everyone was referring to as a “weather phenomenan,” which is […]

Colombia Trip: Day Six (Medellin)

Tuesday, November 25, 2008

It’s not always best to try to fit in too much in a small amount of time, but with only a couple of days in Medellin I really had no choice, although I did feel like I saw alot. Bright and early Monday morning I hopped on Colombia’s only inner-city train system, Medellin’s Metro Line, […]

Colombia Trip: Day Five (Medellin)

Monday, November 24, 2008

What happened to day four you ask? Well, I really did nothing of note, or at least nothing that was so significant that I wanted to blog about it. I went to this giant outside mall with a couple people from Germany where we shopped for shoes in about a hundred different little shoe stores, […]

Colombia Trip: Day Three (Part Two)

Sunday, November 23, 2008

One of the most popular day trips from Bogotá is to head about an hour north to Zipaquirá, home to the famous Salt Cathedral. To get there you have to head to the end of the line of the Tranmileno (see above), Bogotá´s above-ground subway system. Zipaquirá, like most towns settled by they Spanish, has […]
