    Bogota / day 2

    February 14 in Colombia ⋅ 🌧 19 °C

    To be honest, i didn’t feel so comfortable in Bogota, the city is not the safest and everyone is warning you, additionally I had struggle with my stomach.
    This is why I didn’t explore so much. I only went to the museo del Botero, one of the most important artist of Colombia, famous for paintings and sculptures of well proportioned persons. Even Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa got some more curves.Read more

    Bogota

    February 13 in Colombia ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Final stop in Colombia is Bogota!
    I met again two girls I knew from casa en el agua and spend one day with them.
    Bogota is huge, over 7mill. people living there and the altitude of the city is 2600m.
    We visited the Montserrat, based on 3200m overlocking the city.
    On the opposite side you can see the green mountains. We spend the whole afternoon there, escaping the busy city life and breath in fresh air.Read more

    Filandia

    February 11 in Colombia ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Daytrip to Filandia, the little sister of Salento with less tourists and a mirador (view point in Spanish) to overlook the surrounding country.
    The public transportation is via jeeps, called Willy‘s, with as many people as possible, even the people have to stand in the back outside on a step.

    Valle del Cocora

    February 9 in Colombia ⋅ 🌧 17 °C

    Famous for this area is a hike through the Cocora Valley with the wax palms over 60m high. The hike (in total 16km) has two parts, rainforest and valley, and you should decide based on the weather which way first.
    Often the valley gets really cloudy in the afternoon, this is why I started with the palms.
    It was beautiful but also exhausting, the diversity of the nature and the views making this hike special.

    Casa en el agua | II

    February 4, Caribbean Sea ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Some more impressions...
    I have never seen before so much lobster and crabs, fresh out of the sea, from ocean to table!
    You can do SUP, kayaking and trips to close islands or like we, just hanging in the ocean drinking beer!
    Could you ask for more? :)

    Casa en el agua

    February 3, Caribbean Sea ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    A hostel in the ocean, yes it is for real!
    From Cartagena with a speed boat 2h into the Caribbean Sea you’ll find this place!
    It’s called casa en el agua, the have a few rooms but most of the people (including me) sleeping in hammocks. It’s a place just to relax, hang out and enjoy this special location.Read more

    Minca

    January 31 in Colombia ⋅ 🌧 14 °C

    Minca is a small village in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, one of the highest coastal mountains.
    From there you can start different hikes, I choose the way to Casa Elemento because this place is famous for the giant hammocks and a view over the jungle right up to the ocean!
    On the way I met a another girl and so we hiked the steep way together and enjoyed a fresh beer in the hammock together.
    Down we have chosen a different way through the jungle, a way I would never walk by my own :)
    At the end we hiked 18 km, exhausted but happy I treaded myself with a good burger for dinner!

    Costeno beach

    January 29 in Colombia ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    To let it all hang out I spent 3 nights at Costeno beach, a really natural beach, palm-lined, all hostels or cabanas are right at the beach, no hotels & supermarkets, the sound of the waves day & night, long strolls on the beach...
    one of my favorit places on this trip! 🖤

    Tayrona national park

    January 27 in Colombia ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    One of Colombia’s highlights is this national park with beautiful beaches!
    Unfortunately the parc is closed every year in February, what for me is the 1st not the 28th of the month before :)
    But with a little bit organization I made it on the last day! You can stay overnight in the park on campsites or hammocks but his wasn’t possible for me anymore.
    So I laced my shoes early in the morning to go on my first solo hike ever!
    The first 2 hours my heart leapt into my throat, somewhere in the mountains/jungle of Columbia, alone! Every single sound scares me, I had to pass dogs and the way was really steep.
    Nonetheless I made it!
    After the highest point you saw the ocean on the way down on a dried-out riverbed with big stones where you had to jump from one to the next.
    I really enjoyed the hike by myself and was bugged by all the people when I finally arrived at the beach.
    (At last Tayrona is really famous so many people visiting - There is another entrance where you only walk 2 hours to the beach what most of the people do)
    I enjoyed time at the beach and made my way back to the other entrance.
    20km and 10hours later i was back in the hostel, exhausted but proud of myself! 😊
