Safety in South America: Easy tips how to stay safe

Colombia, Destinations, Travel Tips

To begin with –  I LOVE SOUTH AMERICA! If you have your plane ticket and reading this post – I want to congratulate you, because it will be experience of a lifetime.

However, when you think South America, one of the first thoughts that pops into your head is  safety. But the truth is – it is not that bad. The further away you are, the more terrible scenarios  the mind tends to conjure up. So rule number 1DO NOT watch “City of Gods” or “Narcos” to get the feel of “South American culture”. 😀 Terrible mistake. But probably you already watched it, and now freaking out. 😀

Hermit of Sierra Nevada: Sustainable lifestyle or why electricity is overrated?

Colombia, Lifestyle, Nature

Sierra Nevada, located on the Carribean coast of Colombia, is considered to be the highest coastal mountains in the world. The local indigenous Kogi people claim it to be the spiritual heart of the world. One of the most spectacular glimpses of Sierra’s snow peaks you can get from a place called Cerro Kennedy – at the altitude of around 2500 m and very very early in the morning when the clouds break for just a couple of hours to unveil all the beauty. Cerro Kennedy is aproximately 8 hours walk from mountain village called Minca. We were on our way to the top, when we met a hermit, living alone in the mountains. He shared with us his unconventional ideas about life.

Caribbean Vibes in Colombia: Drum festival of Palenque

Colombia, Culture

There is something primordial in drum music that echoes to the deepest essence of being. The wind was howling through my ears. The mototaxi was passing by through the fields with many grazing cows. The road without paving was sandy and bumpy. I was on my way to Palenque village where the annual drum festival was about to take place – one of the biggest Afro-Colombian culture event of the year.
