Back to Medellin after a couple of long two weeks of traveling around Colombia. When I returned to Medellin from Nuqui (another remote beach) I knew I had over 11 days to be here but knowing myself I couldn't stay put for that long. I decided to do a quick two days to San Andes Island and I'm so glad I did. Going myself and the two days also turned out to be the right amount of time.

A few of us planned a different kind of relaxing trip to get out of the city again and head somewhere hopefully warm. Now that my home is Medellin for the month with its mostly spring like weather, lots of rainy days though, trips up to the northern part of Colombia just seems like the right thing to do.

My friend John who works in Real Estate in New York called me to let me know that he will be heading to Cartagena Feb 2-6th so I decided to fly over from Bogota. The idea of being on a beach left me with no choice but to go. Many other Meraki Travelers in Remote Year are heading there at the end of the month but this was a good opportunity to party with some of my friends. Cartagena was fantastic! Cartagena has a real Caribbean feel to it, the people are darker in skin color than people from Bogota as...

So what is it like to travel with 80 people on the same plane? Well, it was pretty damn smooth. I did figure it would be a huge hassle for us to coordinate this but Remote Year people are extremely good at what they do. There was only one hiccup and that was when we arrived in Bogota at the airport one of the Program Leaders bag was stolen right in front of all of us. Now that totally sucked because it had her passport in it too. These are one of the many things that happen in this part...
