Just passing through

A travel blog entry by ongkenyong


I decided to make the overland journey from Caracas to Cartagena instead of flying to save a bunch of money. Probably the right decision to make. But definitely shouldn't have bothered to split the journey at Maracaibo to get some rest. On the return leg, we just took the direct bus and endured the 23-hour journey which was not that bad. There …

Crossing into Colombia

A travel blog entry by reframed.abroad


... ministry are a guideline to not travel anywhere due to danger potential, I was looking forward to a little adventure on the way. It turned out that the easiest way of transportation was a shared taxi. Facing my limited options, I squeezed into the old Chevrolet without working aircon, three old Colombian ladies and one Venezuelan guy. I expected a lot of harassment by Venezuelan soldiers during the checkpoints. As the only gringo in the ...

Today we woke up at 3:00 PM because we stayed up most of the night, playing games. Later we went to the "Casino Caribe", but Franco couldnt enter because the guards thought that he had drugs in his cervical collar, when we went back to the hotel, we ate “asado negro” and now we are here; we will dream with ...

Bienvenidos a Venezuela

A travel blog entry by arango


Our first border crossing, Colombia to Venezuela at Paraguachon....

The temporary import permit as tourists was exactly as expected, about 3 hours of navigating one office to the next to present passports, titles, insurance, etc. Everyone was very nice and helpful. our motorcycle "stands out" to say the least, so we have a lot of wide-eyed spectators, slapping their buddy on the shoulder..."mira mira" and then a whole ...

We took a bus from Santa Marta to Maracaibo. The border cross was surprisingly straight forward, we had heard it was a nightmare with Venezuela immigration going through bags with fine tooth combs, our bags didn't even have to come off the bus. We were also able to easily change US dollars on the black market at the border which was a nice surprise. The situation ...

    Had to stay here because Hotel Jolie lost our reservation. It's old and our room had a stale cigarette smell to it. The pasta I had from the restaurant on the second floor tasted like it was a re-heated boxed dinner meal from the supermarket. Tiny cockroaches in the toilet. Best to avoid this hotel. The only reason I'm giving this 2 stars is because the reception staff were OK to deal with. We only got to see the reception area of Hotel Jolie (also 3-star rated) , but it looks 10X nicer and cleaner.
