I usually object to layovers because I prefer to quickly arrive at my destination. I have recently begun to see the benefits of having a layover while traveling. It allows you the opportunity to see multiple cities/countries in one trip. Can you believe that some airports offer free layover tours?
I only had 24 hours left in Cartagena, Colombia and quite frankly just wanted to relax. I knew that I wanted to find a beach to lay on, needed a message to prepare for the real life that awaited me when I returned home, and it was imperative that I found authentic salsa music to soothe my soul.
I turned the camera towards Alex and my mother blurted out,”I thought all Colombians were light-skinned”
The markets are the pulsating heartbeat of the city. In the market, we tasted avocados bigger than your fist, ate juicy mangoes, sweet pineapples and shared a local dishes.
When people try to make you feel inferior due to your size. What do you do?? Climb 740 steps! Weight is only a number!
salt deposit was formed over 250 million years ago and halite aka salt rock is what the Salt Cathedral is made from.
If visiting Bogota, go to the Salt Cathedral and Gold Museum. The Salt Cathedral is a Roman Catholic church that was built in the tunnels of the salt mines. The Gold Museum has 3 floors showcasing more than 50,000 pieces of gold and other artifacts.
Ever since I’ve taken a cooking class in Thailand, I have made it my goal to try a cooking class in each country that I visit. My tongue likes to be assaulted with new flavors, spices, and various textures.
OMG imagine you are on your first solo international trip and your Airbnb host cancels your reservation after you arrive in your destination. Thank God for my Colombian Buddy Paola.
Great soul food restaurants that you have to try in Oakland, Ca.
