Fotón de Ciudad Perdida cortesía de @jessebackpacker -
Ciudad Perdida fue construida alrededor del año 700 d.c. por comunidades indígenas tayronas.
Tras casi 400 años de abandono, fue descubierta por Guaqueros (Saqueadores de Tumbas) 😱 casi por accidente en 1.973, mientras exploraban antiguos asentamientos cercanos se encontraron con una escalera de 1.200 escalones de piedra que en ese entonces estaba cubierta de musgo, tierra y raíces.
Solo hasta 1.976 el gobierno Colombiano supo de su existencia por rumores que se habían esparcido en Santa Marta acerca de tesoros de oro y cuarzos.
Hoy en día es considerado como uno de los principales sitios arqueológicos de Colombia.

Salento, Colombia, the only place in the world where the towering Wax Palm is indigenous. Home to these palms is Cocora Valley, one of the most beautiful places I've been to, in or out, of Colombia.
Traveling is such an introspective experience, it can be fun, exhausting, lonely, and rewarding all at the same time. It's funny when I left the US, where there really isn't much at all of an international travel culture, a lot of people thought what I was doing was crazy, I'm so brave, a couple months is such a long time. But, you get out here and realize quickly that at any given time, there are countless people doing the same & more, albeit in their own way. And honestly, it's kind of annoying. For a lot of backpackers, everything is a competition, and every new hostel and every new group of people is an opportunity to one-up the story, or affirm their own ego. And to an extent, we all fall on this continuum, myself included. At times, it's hard not to fall into the same shallow, tired, repetitive small talk: how long? Where from? Where to? Simultaneously judging ourselves and others by what we've seen or haven't, how long we've been, or how long we plan on traveling. Sometimes I get to a new hostel and I legit cannot be bothered to do it again. I just connected with people in another town, and now I'm hear and I've got to do it all over again, have the same conversations again, rinse and repeat. One thing that I've been thinking about is a phrase often used in the thru-hiking community: "hike your own hike" and this keeps me sane, and maybe(?) Keeps my perpetual cynicism to a healthy level, whatever that means. Some people travel fast, some travel slow, some like to see and do all of the attractions that hostels and travel bloggers will say you haven't really experienced a country without, and I'm not among those people. I like to take my time, maybe I'll stay in one place longer than another, maybe I'll opt to just walk around the city at night, or find my favorite restaurant. And inevitably, from those who prioritize differently, I often get this vibe of condescension. But here's my meditation: do what makes you happy and forget the rest ✌️

Cristo Redentor 🙏🏻📍Imponente y majestuoso !! Una de las siete maravillas del mundo moderno 🌍
Cuando me senté a ver las estrellas en medio del desierto me dieron ganas de llorar. Llámenme cursi o lo que sea, pero es la conexión más cercana que he tenido con el universo.
Descubrí que hay estrellas que parecen cristal quebrado y otras que brillan cual diamantes puestos en el cielo. Logré ver estrellas de diferentes colores, unas azules, otras moradas, amarillas, rojas o anaranjadas.
Es mágico saber que los seres humanos estamos hechos de la misma materia que las estrellas y somos, casi por completo, polvo de estrellas.
Una noche de esas que jamás se olvidan.
#throwbacktrip#Colombia I want to talk about my trip to Colombia last year. This is probably one of my favorite pictures. Sitting on a pile of coffee. At the one of the largest the coffee farm #donmodesto near Medellin, Colombia. We went 3 different cities in Colombia. From Bogota to Cartagena then to Medellin. As much as we got questioned so many times before we visited Colombia like 'why Colombia?', I want to say you are missing out if you have not been to Colombia. Each city had its own charm, food was great and people were so kind. And no, I don't speak Espanol, yet people were willing to help us. I know what a lot of people are concerned about. Safety. Honestly, as long as you follow the guideline of 'don't go and don't do', I didn't feel any threat to my safety. Again, you have to be smart and aware of your surroundings. It's a basic rule for traveling. Don't let the fear prevent you from traveling! Just make sure you do the research before you go. How about Colombia for your next travel destination? #keepontraveling#traveltheworld🌍 #colombia#medellin#bogota#cartagena#travelcolombia
