Cartagena was not quite what we had expected, very touristy with it being virtually impossible to walk anywhere without being pestered by hawkers. We decided to head up the coast for a while to Santa Marta for a final chance of ‘holidaying’. We found a nice hostel with a pool and a bar and hardly […]
Welcome back to Cartagena – here’s the second gallery, which is also the very last of my galleries from our round the world tour. It’s been a lot of work over a long time bringing all of this to you – I hope you’ve enjoyed our tales and photos!
Jewel of the Caribbean coast, we visited Cartagena twice – the gallery beyond the image covers our first pass through the city.
Galapagos to Quito and onwards to Bogota by bus – 400+ miles in an upright seat for over 24hrs, next to a missonary intent on spreading the word! At 4.30am the bus dropped us off at the border and then dissappeared, leaving us to guess which direction Colombia was in the pitch black of night. […]
Medellin was a beautiful city though we didn’t see a great deal of it as our time there was short and the weather a bit on the ropey side for some of it. What we did see we enjoyed and I would happily pop back one day for more.
Our final country saw much fewer photos taken overall – we were out to make the most of it in terms of meeting people and seeing places and for whatever reason that led to less photos. That said, beyond the image below you’ll still see a good selection of snaps from Bogota, which is a […]
(Part of a series of articles by Fi trawling the archives for photos taken on the tiny compact camera way back when). I was tired from travel but had also learned to not get too excited about the hyped up experiences you can ‘enjoy’ while travelling – thankfully Galapagos far exceeded my expectations. In my […]
Santa Cruz – within minutes of arriving we had seen a ton of marine iguanas and frigates. In between arranging trips to other islands we managed to visit Tortuga Bay (we saw millions more iguanas, pelicans, blue herons, Galapagos crabs and probably many more animals I would be oblivious to), the Lava tunnels and tortoise […]
It’s nice to be finally getting around to publishing these snaps – the photos I took while on the Galapagos Islands are some of the ones I’m most proud of so it’s nice for them to see the light of day, albeit on this obscure corner of the internet. A number of photos are coming from […]
Rabida and Floreana were visited as part of our 5 day catamaran trip. Rabida, diversley beautiful with jagged volcanic sculpures and deep iron red sands. It was very rugged and atmospheric with starfish and frisky crabs littering the red beach. From memory, poor memory that is, I think we went snorkelling on the coast here […]
