    Tayrona National Park

    January 24 in Colombia ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Today we hung out on a small beach and there was nobody else there! My dad and I dug a huge hole and put water in it and my mum said it was an “exfoliating foot bath”. Then my dad and I wandered over to the next beach over and we met a very cute dog who followed us all the way back to the hotel where we went for a swim in the pool and then came to the sunset bar, which is where we are now. It is so beautiful and we are waiting for the sunset to start. My mum is time-lapsing the sunset so I’ll put it with the pictures.Read more

    Tayrona National park

    January 25 in Colombia ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    We climbed up a waterfall!!!

    The day began with a horse ride through an avatar jungle! My horse was so lovely and called Lucero which means Bright Star in Spanish. The trail was winding and following a dried up stream as there hadn’t been any water in 3 months! The trees were unbelievably large and hung down just like in the movie Avatar!

    We climbed up 3 different waterfall zones then went for a swim in the very top waterfall.

    Today is our last day in this region of Colombia. Its very diverse as we have been in beaches, forest and rainforests. Its a very noisy region too. Every morning we get woken up by all kinds if animals, birds, lizards, howler monkeys, frogs and goodness knows what else.

    Im happy to see that there is alot of respect for the indigenous tribes. (Kogi, Wiwa, Arhuaco and Kankuamo). The indigenous people of this community believe it is their duty to keep the planet in balance. They believe this region (Serria Nevada de Santa Marta) is the heart of the world. What happens here happens everywhere. They call themselves the Elder Brothers, because they look after the earth, and the rest of modern society (Younger Brothers) who are destroying the planet with their wilfulness. Even though it is Elder Brother’s job to restore the balance, they still love Younger Brothers because we are family.

    Nachmittags Snack & Sierra Bar

    November 2, 2018 in Colombia ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Heute war einer der untätigsten Tage unseres Urlaubs. Da es den Tag über immer mal wieder regnete, haben wir den ganzen Tag gelesen, abgehangen und ein paar Folgen einer Netflix Serie geschaut. Als dann noch unsere Massage-Termine abgesagt wurden, konnten wird den Tag komplett abschreiben 😄.
    Eben waren wir noch im benachbarten Hotel-Restaurant eine Kleinigkeit essen und sind dann weiter zu unserer Hotelbar gezogen. Wirklich ein unspektakulärer Tag. 😎

    Playa Los Angeles

    November 1, 2018 in Colombia ⋅ 🌧 31 °C

    Um nicht nur faul in der Hängematte zu liegen, haben wir uns auf dem Weg zum benachbarten Strand gemacht. Leider war hier die Brandung so stark, dass man nur Knie-hoch ins Meer gehen konnte und schon da das Gefühl hatte, man wird jeden Moment mitgezogen. Also blieb es bei der kurzen Erfrischung und einem Bier 🍺 an der Strandbad.Read more
