i am so glad we stayed in colombia long enough to visit cartagena! it’s a beautiful mixture of old (restored) colonial luxury and current disheveled grittiness. it’s pretty oppressively hot there. so the city goes at a fairly slow pace (except for the tourist throng) while the sun is up. and, as soon as it… Continue reading →

it’s been a mobile week for us: heading back from peru, getting our colombia paperwork in order so that the bike could stay in the country a few months longer, and then taking a quick loop north to visit some must-see sights on our list before heading to the mountains for our month of volunteering.… Continue reading →

i’m not going to pretend it’s been an easy/fun few weeks of job searching in bogota. but overall, we’ve gained experience, information and a new grasp of patience after coming down from our ever-changing daily routine as travelers. so, though we had some low moments of thinking doors were closed to us, we sat and… Continue reading →

we are tired. we’ve had visitors for two weeks straight now. and, when faced with the task of cramming as much of colombia into one week as possible (while having the convenience of a motorcycle to get you around) we obviously overdid it. twice. but, the driving from bogota to a small western mountain town,… Continue reading →

we had a whirlwind week with emily. and for her first motorcycle adventure ever, i’d say it was a pretty good introduction! we saw the sights in bogota, did some day trips into the mountains, and then headed down into the central valley for some warmer weather. it’s really interesting to host someone in a… Continue reading →
