  • Otavalo’s Saturday Market

    After 24 hours of buses, immigration lines, checking out a church built into a bridge, and walking across the border from Colombia to Ecuador, we arrived in Otavalo, a town in a beautiful valley surrounded by mountains and volcanoes, about 3 hours south of the border, on Friday afternoon. We had read that they have…

  • Yum: Colombian Chocolate y Queso

      In Colombia, you are never too young or too old to drink hot chocolate: it is a staple drink at breakfast or for a snack. The chocolate is incredibly tasty, even though it is made with water instead of milk. It’s served with a slice of their standard cheese, which is slightly salty (like…

  • Yay!

    This is totally unrelated to our trip, but it brought huge smiles to our faces, as it reminded us of our wonderful wedding weekend while we’re far away from our friends and family: Style Me Pretty featured our wedding- check it out here!

  • It Was Probably Bound to Happen at Some Point

    Upon arriving in Bogota after a quick flight from Santa Marta, we were thrilled to feel cold air and were excited to be in a big city. With help from two very friendly Colombians, we figured out which colectivo to take into the center of town, got our bearings, and attempted to walk down the…

  • Caribbean Coast: Cartagena and Tayrona National Park

    When we last left you, we had just arrived in Cartagena, a small and quaint–if a bit sleepy–colonial town. Or maybe it just seemed sleepy because we were tired the whole time, and a large portion of our three days there were spent sleeping and kicking the end of the fevers that afflicted us in…
