The Punta Tombo Penguin Colony is one of the most amazing places to see penguins.  I found this little guy after I saw the hoard of people crowded around the imaginary “do not cross line” taking pictures.  Its one of two penguins chicks that I have ever seen.  The other I was fortunate to see […]

The art of a press trip takes a bit of skill and I won’t lie, luck.  I honestly never thought that I would go on a get a press trip.  Even though I have been traveling all of my life I have only been blogging for just over a year.  There are so many popular […]

Visiting Nairobi for the first time here in Kenya there was a strange feeling that came over me.  I knew that it couldn’t be the buffet I ate because it was mostly healthy food at a restaurant I have never eaten before. I always trust buffets. I have been able to blend in cities all […]

  The dangers in Colombia are very serious especially if you choose to ignore them.  The strides taken by the Colombian government and other parties have  been enormous in eradicating crime from city streets.  I can personally attest to the fact that Colombia is much safer in comparison to the drug war days.

My Drug of Choice in Colombia

My Drug of Choice in Colombia

Drugs in Colombia are still around you just don’t see them anymore.  You don’t see the drug war on the good ol’ tele either as the British would say.  But just because you don’t find drugs readily available or see them on the streets doesn’t mean that they don’t exist.  Colombia has done a great […]
