Travel Blogs from Cartagena

Guayaquil (SEGU) to Cartagena (SKCG)

A travel blog entry by harry4123


... a OK flight but cloudy below me so not many good views of the jungles and rivers that I remember from last year.

Cartagena was very hazy just like last year; you really need to fly the VOR approach for runway 01 to find the airport. Once I touched down the tower told me to expedite taxi which to me always means get off the runway as quickly as possible.

The shower was refreshing. I had to leave the bathroom door open for light as there is no light in the bathroom. Our room was still amazingly cool. The cement walls keep it that way. The curtains were pulled and they kept out the sun.

I took some time to put my feet up. They were getting mighty ...
