I could and very well may live in Medellin some day. I might spend my 30th birthday and graduation celebration in Cartagena and Medellin and will be looking for friends to join me this time. Usually when I am coming home from a trip I’m exhausted and ready to come home. I feel like I… Continue reading
Tranquillo in the Sky
I’ll skip the last two days because frankly they weren’t very interesting. Football yesterday all day, lots of rain… Saturday night clubbing and a late night rave atmosphere at Club Carnival just outside of town. Today I woke up at 9:00 after a pretty long sleep. I asked Diana, the wonderful girl who works here… Continue reading
I must apologize for the slow updating. Things have gotten into full swing here at the hostel. Large groups coming and going, people getting to know each other.

Travel Savings Tip #1
If you’re like I was in the years leading up to taking that first step towards traveling, saving the money is probably the most overwhelming and intimidating part of the pre-planning. It really does not have to be though. I’ve learned over the last half decade of travelling and saving that it takes patience and… Continue reading
