When I saw reviews done by popular travel bloggers, I wasn’t sure if they were being completely honest. San Blas Adventures trip seemed TOO good to be true. How much were they paid to say all these AMAZING things?
Then Darien and I decided last minute to sign up and ya’ll, it was absolute PARADISE.
P-A-R-A-D-I-S-E. Continue reading
Today I finally felt some sort of revenge on the men of Santa Marta. Recently I wrote a letter to all the men in Santa Marta to stop harassing me. Apparently one man didn’t get the memo because today it happened again. Fortunately this time around I got the revenge I always dreamed about. Continue reading
Dear Men of Santa Marta,
I’ve never felt more uncomfortable in a city. Unable to walk down the street without being kissed at, yelled at, and verbally harassed. I tried to ignore it and blame it on your culture. Then tonight happened. Continue reading
This isn’t a comprehensive guide to Tayrona National Park, it’s the personal journey entries I took while camping. Forced to be with nature, away from wifi, lost in the jungle with only a book and a journal. The following are entries from the three days we hiked in Tayrona.

In my profession, I have traveled for years. Why? Variety, curiosity, adventure, the challenge. I guess my traveling daughter and I are similar. You must be willing to leave your comfort zone; belief in self is critical. Continue reading

I had this epiphany in Cali. It’s like one day everything clicked and I realized all of the huge Colombian derrières are fake, everyone (or it seems like) has plastic surgery. Continue reading
I’ve felt unmotivated to write for over 2 weeks now. I’ve started about 5 different blog posts about cat calling (it’s BAD here), plastic surgery in Colombia, salsa dancing, traveling with a boyfriend, etc. Darien and I started a blog together. Also, started a YouTube channel. I haven’t felt compelled to post or finish any of them. It’s been a month of unfinished tasks. BUT one of my favorite months in South America. Continue reading
