Parque de Tyrona

A travel blog entry by jeffreywatts


On Saturday we were up early to catch a bus to Parque de Tyrona, one of Colombia's most popular national parks. It was a long hot walk through the streets to get to the bus, dodging traffic, horses, donkeys and militant vendors but we made it! The bus was a stinky oven overloaded with people and random items like engine parts and merchant wares, but we embraced it because what else can you do?! Upon arriving ...

... my bikini and it pinged off, Barbara Windsor style. This provoked a fit of giggles from us, but the other campers seemed to take it in their stride. Lots of them were topless from the start anyway!

The Santa Marta before the storm and the storm

A travel blog entry by justin_and_emac


We arrived at the hostel in Santa Marta pretty late but Justin was itching to go out in Columbia. We met some fellow travellers with Justin's ambition and found ourselves in a taxi to nearby Taganga. It was a Monday night and let's just say it wasn't a uni night. After several two for ones we started talking to a group of 8 Aussies from Perth who held the after party at their apartment after the pub closed. It was a good night which ended abruptly when we remembered we ...
