#82_colombia_lostcity

Time for the next video! This one is packed with interesting stuff: Starting with some diving in Capurganá, followed by the towns of Cartagena, Santa Marta & Minca, onwards to the amazingly beautiful beaches in Tayrona National Park, a quick ride to yet another beach at Palomino, climaxing with the trek to Lost City Ciduad Perdida before finishing it off in Bogotá & Villa de Leyva!

Live #62, Bogotá & Villa de Leyva, Colombia

#83_colombia_bogotalevya06/03/2015 It’s been my second visit to Colombia’s capital Bogotá and I met up with some friends from my last time over there. We were also headed to Villa de Leyva for a little roadtrip, a beautiful small colonial town about 160km north east of Bogotá.

Live #61, Ciduad Perdida & Taganga, Colombia

#82_colombia_lostcity01/03/2015 Relaxing at the gorgeous beach of Palomino was great, but if you followed my blog for a while, you will know that I actually prefer to put on my hiking boots and be a bit more active. The 5-day trek to the “The Lost City” of Ciduad Perdida deep in the jungle of northern Colombia seemed to be a must-do for me. We certainly had a lot of action thanks to the poisonous snakes in the area. One of them bit a soldier, putting him in a desperate need to be rescued by a helicopter, and one other was found and killed by our guides on the way back!

Live #60, Palomino & Santa Marta, Colombia

#81_colombia_palomino27/02/2015 Sometimes you come along a place you had no idea it even existed and then find yourself at that very place the next day. This happened to me in the case of Palomino, a small cozy settlement not too far from Santa Marta in Colombia on the way to Riohacha. It is famous for tubing down the river Palomino and a great place to just relax and enjoy the calming effects of the ocean.

Live #59, Tayrona National Park, Colombia

#79_colombia_tayrona25/02/2015 Tayrona National Park should ring a bell for a lot of people, forming one of the most spectacular coastlines in Colombia. About four months ago, I spent a few nights there and can finally present you my story wandering through the beaches, doing some great bouldering and exploring the “mini” lost city Pueblito 🙂

Live #58, Santa Marta & Minca, Colombia

#78_colombia_santamarta23/02/2015 My time in Brazil is slowly coming to an end after almost two months and exploring Santuário do Caraça as well as colonial towns such as Ouro Preto was another great experience. I barely had internet in the last days, but now I can finally get a quick update out. Santa Marta has been an amazing base for a lot of different things in the northern coast of Colombia; one short side trip in a Jeep took us up the mountains to a small village called Minca.

Live #57, Cartagena, Colombia

#77_colombia_catargena22/02/2015 I made it to Vitória in the east of Brazil now after some amazing days in Trindade and Paraty! Heading to Pedra Azul and the Caparaó National Park will be the most off-the-beaten-path experience in this trip so far, even 85% of the Brazilians I asked didn’t know about the two places! This update covers Cartagena in Colombia, probably the most known and beautiful town in the north of the country.

Live #56, Capurganá, Colombia

19/02/2015 After a few days of amazing hiking in the Serra dos Orgãos around Petrópolis and Teresópolis, I am now back in Rio de Janeiro and ready to watch the Champions League finale at the beach followed by hopefully an awesome sunset at Praia do Aproador. This update will commence a new country and continent, arriving in Colombia’s border town of Capurganá, which can not be reached by car and is famed to be one of the best diving spots in Colombia; giving me a very good reason to do my first fun dives after my PADI Certification in Utila 🙂

Rumble in the jungle

#xx_lostcity05/03/2015 I just got back from the Lost City trek in Colombia and it has been pretty eventful! I won’t have the time to get another Nicaragua Live Update out now, but hope you will be entertained with this small video in the meanwhile. Fingers crossed that the guy made it to the hospital in time. We actually killed a poisonous snake on our way back as well, this place seems to be fully of them!
