Burned Out? Rained Out? Welcome to Bogota, Colombia

I’m not sure what it was - either I was depressed or the gloomy, cold, rainy weather of Bogota was making my soul shrivel a bit. Don’t get me wrong, Bogota is a pretty cool city with lots of things to do and see... if you can get past the whole weather thing. After spending… Continue reading Burned Out? Rained Out?

Girls and Graffiti in Medellin, Colombia

One of the really cool things I learned about while Couchsurfing in Medellin is that the application of paint on public spaces (graffiti) is not illegal.

Playing With Mud in Colombia – Our Mud Volcano!

Sailing to Colombia on the High Seas

Sailing to Colombia was one of the most amazing experiences of my life and I learned that I’m truly a… Continue reading Sailing to Colombia on the High Seas
