Back in Time in Cartagena

career break travel adventures in Colombia, Cartagena

Hot, sultry, intoxicating. Copyright

If you travel to Colombia, there’s a good chance that you are planning to go to Cartagena, or at least you will want to return to see the city. On my first visit in 2008, I couldn’t believe this place. I felt transported back to the 1700s. Old architecture, hanging plants, street vendors, narrow cobblestone streets and horse-drawn carriages are all part of the mix. Charge your camera’s batteries up because there’s lots to photograph. I like this street heading towards the Cartagena Cathedral because it typifies the environment you will find walking around the old walled city. And, it made for a pretty Suh-Weet Shot.

Oh and depending on your travel style, bring your shorts and/or linens; it’s hot and humid. Final tip, go have a sundowner at Cafe Del Mar (bar on top of the old wall with a great sunset view).

    Picturesque, indeed! Also looks like there’d be a lot of opportunity for setting and releasing those oh so contended “Ahhhhs”
