I spent a long time searching for boutique hotels in the Old Town area and finally settled on the Alfiz hotel, which seemed to be pretty amazing from the pictures and reviews. I had told them prior to arriving that it was our anniversary, so we were hoping for a room upgrade. The hotel definitely delivered. The place did not look like anything special from the outside: in fact, it looked pretty small and we could see that there was a LOT of construction going on in the neighboring buildings. But when we were ushered into the inner courtyard I thought the hotel was extremely beautiful and romantic with a cute little breakfast nook, which served delicious fresh fruit, breads, and egg dishes of all kinds. Despite the construction noises from next door, the Alfiz also had impeccable service, a small pool and rooftop with a view, and some other amenities (like a rather overpowering citrus smell in the lobby and library) that helped to define the hotel as boutique. We loved our room that had two wooden doors that led out to a balcony, as well as a giant bed and bathroom, and even Ipad controlled lights and TV. All of the rooms had a colonial theme so, from a historical viewpoint, I liked that as well.

After our morning visit to the fort, I had signed the four of us up for a Columbian Street Food tour courtesy of Cartagena Connections Walking Tour. I found the tour online, and decided to sign us up because, well, the excursion seemed right up our alley. Trying new food is one of my favorite aspects of traveling, and I also enjoy seeing parts of …
We left the island of Providencia, not by evil catamaran, but by tiny prop engine plane instead. Our flight left really early in the morning and the airport was absolutely tiny. A small propeller plane from San Andres touched down around 8:00 and about twenty passengers got off. Little did they know they had bypassed one of the worst sea crossings …
So the morning was spent forging documents for a life on The Road. Very Catch Me If You Can. First up I tried finding example aeroplane eTickets online that I could doctor. No luck. As such I trawled back through my emails for the confirmation email from the company I booked my ticket to Rio with. Whilst not an eTicket per se it is a receipt and document of intent, and does list the flights, dates, costs and all that ...
... the planet still travelling come the second one. Leesh whips up a beautiful chilli con carne dish and we sit around chatting to Manuel who secured a bed here at the hostel for the next two days before he heads to Medellin. We don't last too long though and I think the chocolate binge and cheese snack we had yesterday is churning Leeshs tummy so off to bed and get some sleep before another early run tomorrow. Best moment: having fun at the Castillo San Felipe ...
... guide translated to us after each spiel! So, you climb up stairs to the top then climb down some rickety ladders into the lukewarm mud. Its like thick yoghurt consistency and smooth. For some reason its also very boyant which is good as there's no bottom to balance on. Men greet you at the bottom of the ladder, float you onto your back and give you a massage (despite saying no gracias Marcus still received one haha), only cost an extra ...
