Leaving South America

Ok so it’s been a long time since the last entry and a long time since the trip finished, but I just want to complete the blog. Of course I can’t remember as much now, so I think the rest will be more photos than words. Despite the late partying in Santa Marta, I didn’t miss my bus back to...

A Birthday in Cartagena

Immediately after New Year is Lucy's birthday. Her intention had been to visit the nearby '''Tutomo''', ''el Volcan de Lodo'' for her birthday, but this would have meant getting up quite early on her birthday, and since she didn't emerge from their room at all on New Year's Day this was clearly...

New Year in Cartagena

The apartment we moved to on Boxing Day was a bit closer to the centre of town, but essentially it was still in Bocagrande, which meant that the beaches were still easy walking distance, but I hoped we might be able to spend some time in the old town, which includes a cheaper backpacker...

Christmas in Cartagena

When I arrived at the apartment in Cartagena everyone was a bit subdued because they'd had a big night the night before. Also, Zdenek, Lucy, Natasha, and Silvie, who I was expecting to be there, had been joined by a further two people, to reduce costs they explained: two young Swedish guys,...

Cartagena

We came to Cartagena in the late afternoon after a 4h minibus ride that went without incident. When we came there we had arranged a Tahitian Divemaster to host us called Erv. So as soon as we got off the bus we just took a taxi and went straight there. It turned out that she was living...

En la ciudad heroica.

Le dicen la ciudad heroica. Un poco de historia: "El 11 de noviembre de 1811 Cartagena se convirtió en El Segundo territorio que declaraba independencia absoluta de España en la actual Colombia, luego de Santa Cruz de Mompox el 6 de agosto de 1810. Luego el 20 de agosto de 1815, en los primeros...

CARTAGENA, UNA IMAGEN VALE MAS QUE MIL PALABRAS… ¿Y MIL IMÁGENES?

Caeremos en el dicho popular de que una imagen vale más que mil palabras, pero la ciudad de Cartagena, aquí en Colombia, no puede describirse con palabras, o por lo menos nosotros no podemos. Así que desde la humildad de unos principiantes escritores de historietas de viaje, solamente vamos a...

The city made in defense of ´pirates

Cartegana is a highly diversified architectural town, tucked right along the Carribean coast. During the time of Spanish colonial rule, the city was used as storage grounds for large amounts of gold that the Spanish Conquistadors found in the area. Over a couple of years Cartagena became known...

Colombia - The Only Danger is You´ll Never Want to Sleep

Well, shoot me now. The Great Work is done. My first mission was a failure - finding gringo John in Pavones. That one couldn´t be helped. My second mission, rock climbing in Boquete, was prevented by foul weather. My third mission, however, semi-secret and occult in nature, was a...
