Hola chicos, otra vez yo, con una nueva historia que contar. Este fin de semana me dispuse a dejar a un lado mi plan de ahorro y me aventure junto con unos compañeros a conocer uno de los pueblos más hermosos que tiene mi País, Santa Cruz de Mompox, ubicado en el departamento de Bolívar. Dentro... Ver post completo.
Travel Tip: A Toothbrush Case Wow, that sounds exciting... Now you know how much I love your sarcasm. But it's hardly exciting. It is highly practical though. Nothing freaks out a hygiene obsessive like myself more than seeing some blonde girl's toothbrush floating around Latin America unprotected... What... Ver post completo.
Blonde Travel Tip: Your Pockets What about them? Look, there are plenty of travel blogs that will tell you what to put in them, in case of crime - a $20,000 peso-bill, an 'arrow' phone, even pepper spray - but I'm thinking more socially... How? Think of the people on the streets. Having something... Ver post completo.
Blonde Travel Tip: Colombianisms Ooh, Colombianisms, could that be because we're in... Alright, save the sarcasm. I'm talking about those uses of language peculiar to Colombia that can make life difficult in other Spanish-speaking countries... Such as? Well, "Me regalas..." for example. You're more...

Blonde Travel Tip: Bendy Bits That sounds wrong... I know! I'm talking about everyone's favourite city transport system. It really hasn't been a good week for transmilenio... Problems are like buses... Exactly. They all come along at once. But while a robbery and a break down can happen to anyone,... Ver post completo.

Suddenly, she was convinced he was taking her in a circle... What did she do? She called the friend she was en... Ver post completo.
Blonde Travel Tip: Bus Behaviour You mean hovering? Of course, any expat worth their salt knows it upsets Colombians if you sit immediately on a warm bus seat - they think it spreads germs. You're supposed to hover until it's cooled down... That's your tip? Not quite. Did you also know it's rude... Ver post completo.
Blonde Travel Tip: Tears for Transport Why do I have a bad feeling about this? It's just a story. A true story. A blonde friend was in a pueblo outside Pereira and she needed to catch the last bus on a Sunday night to make her flight. Somehow, it sold out... What did she do? She said she was philosophical....

Blonde Travel Tip: Horsing Around Why am I instantly concerned? Don't be. Horses are a big part of Colombian tourism, from bouncing up Monserrate to bounding through the coffee district. It's just that they can be so sleek and skinny and there is a serious lack of health and safety headwear... What... Ver post completo.
Blonde Travel Tip: The Toilet Stop Please explain... We've all been there, needing the restroom when we're stranded in the touristy parts of Bogota, Medellin, even Cartagena, but did you realise how easily you could put your foreign-ness to good use? ... How? Just go to a nice restaurant or hotel,... Ver post completo.
