How Well Do You Know Belize?

Did you know that Belize was called British Honduras until 1971? (I didn’t even know it was ever British. Is there anywhere those Brits didn’t at least try to take over at some point in time?) Well now it’s home to some 300,000 people with British, African, and indigenous descent, […]

Is Argentina Really Running Out Of Money?

It’s true. Slate’s Joe Keohane’s was recently down in Buenos Aires for the holiday where he stumbled upon a curious financial phenomenal creating annoyance (and even some savings) in the streets of Argentina: they’re running of money. Well, the one-peso coin to be exact, which is a big deal when […]

Cartagena Nights

Cartagena is easily one of the most beautiful cities that I’ve ever seen, and that’s true during the day. After the sun goes down and the temperatures level off from their highs, Cartagena comes alive and shows off its true beauty.

Colombia Trip: Day Nine (Cartagena)

Colombia Trip: Day Nine (Cartagena)

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 […]

Colombia Trip: Day Nine (Taganga & Snorkeling)

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 […]

Colombia Trip: Day Eight (Beach of the Dead)

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 […]

Colombia Trip: Day Eight (Tinto and Plantains)

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 […]

Colombia Trip: Day Seven (Caribbean Coast)

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 […]

Colombia Trip: Day Six (Medellin)

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 […]

Colombia Trip: Day Five (Medellin)

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 […]
