    A Weekend in Santa Marta

    A Weekend in Santa Marta

    Santa Marta is an undiscovered gem of a city located on the northeastern tip of Atlantic coast of Colombia. I say that it’s an ‘undiscovered gem’ because it usually flies under the radar when compared to its coastal counterparts of Cartagena and Barranquilla. Still though, for Colombians and foreigners alike on vacation, Santa Marta has a lot to offer its visitors. I was drawn to Santa Marta a couple of months ago when I visited its neighboring town of Minca, which is also quite beautiful and full of lush scenery up in the mountains. Unfortunately, I did not get to spend much time in Santa Marta so I decided that during my 2nd time living in Colombia, I could not pass up the chance to visit this city if I had the chance.

    Right on Red State: Florida Highways

    Right on Red State: Florida Highways

    As of the writing of this article, there are twelve major interstate highways in Florida. We can assure you that we will not be updating this article if any more are built, so don’t try to correct us. Of the twelve, nine interstate highways never leave the state of Florida, which makes one question the meaning of the word interstate. They are Interstates 4, 10, 75, 95, 110, 175, 275, 375, 195, 295, 395, 595. The last eight are just roads the connect the first four, which explains why they don't connect to other states. This leaves one highway, I-4. It technically shouldn't even be part of the Interstate System as it doesn't run through multiple states. This is the first strike against “Interstate” 4.

    Travel Simplified For Parents

    Travel Simplified For Parents

    Not long ago, I felt it was apt to give life a dating system. To segment my life into B.C (Before Children) and A.D (After Descendants) seemed a great way to refer to life before and after parenthood. You see most of our perceptions take a turn on entering the parenting world. For example, during the B.C era I, like most human beings reigning the planet, would dive single-handedly at an opportunity to explore and travel. But life changed drastically A.D2010. Forget an escape to the Bahamas, getting out the door was more of a hike to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro. Yes, I’d be huffing and puffing, red in the face trying to make that exit. Take this opposed to B.C1, where getting out the door was a breeze.

    The Temples of Ubud

    The Temples of Ubud

    Indonesia’s holiday island of Bali is a stunning destination — the warm, tropical weather, the friendly people, the huge range of accommodation and dining options, or you could just focus on the spectacular beaches.

    For the Love of Tagine

    For the Love of Tagine

    Welcome to the blue city. There is a four-year-old child clinging to his cat on the steps of his home. The blue tunnels feel like underwater caves and you almost expect sharks and dolphins to weave between the crowds. There is an old lady selling bread- hard, floury, fresh Moroccan khobz, and a flock of animals and their child counterparts run up and try to steal crumby mouthfuls. The smell of leather, incense and cinnamon loom from musty underground doorways. Handmade jewellery and hair oils line doorways and wooden shops and the pavement is cool and dusty. Doesn’t this sound glorious? This is Chefchaouen, in the far dreamy north of Morocco.
