In a world where countries often come with increasingly similar attributes to its neighbours, it’s always refreshing to find a place a little quirky. To me, that is what New Zealand is. More sheep than people reside here, a fact many seem proud to tell you. It is a place with endless views, cheerful locals, and a culture that embraces its Maori influences.
It’s often thought that in the worlds wildest places, the best views are only accessible to those willing to push themselves to the limits. Patagonia, found at the tip of South America straddling the borders of Chile and Argentina while following the spine of the Andes to their southern reaches, is often thought of one of those wild places which rewards only the fittest. It isn’t true.
Like many places, the road less travelled is often rewarding. Tucked away in the Colombian heartlands, Jardin is a similar town that is hard to reach but easy to love. Many thanks to Dale of the Maritime Explorer for sharing his experiences in this small town with us after joining a recent Colombia tour. We hope you enjoy his post as much as we do.
High in the Andean foothills, in a region bathed equally in sunshine and a cloud forest, we follow Dale from The Maritime Explorer as he shares his recent experience on an Adventures Abroad Colombia tour. Thank you kindly to Dale for allowing us to reshare his experience on our blog.
Not every piece of art is beautiful to every person. But it almost always can invoke some sort of emotion and usually, a conversation. We’re pleased to present a blog written by Dale of The Maritime Explorer on a recent tour to Colombia with a stop at the Botero Museum. Thanks for sharing with us Dale!
Have you ever been on the hunt for El Dorado, the lost city of gold? Perhaps we all have been intrigued by this precious metal over the years.
