COLOMBIA | Wednesday, 28 Nov 2012 | Views [1849]

We lazed around sipping those lovely fresh fruit juices in Pelikan Hostal one last time before heading to Cartagena and our last port of call in Colombia.  We took a taxi to Santa Marta bus terminal for P12 000 where we jumped straight onto a Cartagena ... Read more >

Life's a Beach on Palomino

COLOMBIA | Saturday, 24 Nov 2012 | Views [868]

With having left all our luggage, bar a small day bag, in Pelikan Hostal it was a joy to be travelling light and made getting on and of transport blissfully easy.  The collectivo to Santa Marta / Mamatoco dropped us along a main road where we flagged ... Read more >

A 5 Day Trek to Find Ciudad Perdida

COLOMBIA | Tuesday, 20 Nov 2012 | Views [937] | Comments [1]

We’d booked this 5D/4N trek to track down Ciudad Perdida through Magic Tours at an outrageous P600 000 each!  There was no point shopping around as the prices are fixed but the daftest thing is it’s the same price whether you do 4, 5 ... Read more >

Time Out in Taganga

COLOMBIA | Thursday, 15 Nov 2012 | Views [464]

Getting to this fishing bay involved another mammoth journey; the bus from San Gil goes to Barranquila to the west, so we were dropped at Cienaga where the highway splits along the coast.  However, the friendly chap in the Brasilia bus office sold ... Read more >

San Gil and Baricharra

COLOMBIA | Tuesday, 13 Nov 2012 | Views [388]

Despite the night bus (P50 000) being reasonably comfortable we didn’t exactly arrive in San Gil bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.  The night bus didn’t take us directly to our final destination and 10hrs after setting off we had to change ... Read more >

Mouching around Medellin

COLOMBIA | Sunday, 11 Nov 2012 | Views [613]

We jumped on the 7.50am bus for the hour long journey to Pereira (P5500) where we changed onto the 9am bus for Medellin (P30 000).  We’d thoroughly enjoyed Salento and weren’t particularly looking forward to being in a big city but at ... Read more >

Getting a Caffeine Kick in Colombia's Coffee Country

COLOMBIA | Thursday, 8 Nov 2012 | Views [472]

Guess what?  The skies were the clearest they’d been since we set foot in Colombia.  Oh well, that should make for a pleasant day’s travel to Salento; a place we’d only heard good things about.  From what we could gather ... Read more >


Continuing on North to Colombia

COLOMBIA | Sunday, 4 Nov 2012 | Views [318]

Waiting around for the 10.45pm bus in Lago Agrio got a little tedious to say the least.  Town has nothing to offer the tourist but we had a wander around anyway, killed a bit of time in an internet café and wondered what to do next. ... Read more >

The bus dropped us at the terminal in Lago Agrio at 6.30am where we checked out our onward bus options to the border and jumped in a taxi to the jungle trip’s meeting point.  Namely; Hotel D’Mario where our free breakfast was promptly ... Read more >

Two Days in Quito

ECUADOR | Sunday, 28 Oct 2012 | Views [302]

We’d booked ourselves in Hostal del Piamonte right in the heart of the Mariscal Sucre district of town.  This turned out to be a converted colonial house and our room would have been the garage / utility room making it a rather odd.  ... Read more >
