Day 8: bogota > DFW > SAN

Last day of the trip was technically a travel day but our flight was at 11:25 pm so basically we had a full day. So to make the most of it Robyn and I started with a delicious breakfast at a vegetarian spot called Restaurante Loto Azul Vegetariano. It was sooo good! We got there…

Day 7: Bogotá

After a rough night of sleep (the beds were SUPER creaky!) got up early to check out the breakfast the hostel offered. Got a delish bowl of papaya and some plain toast and a fruit smoothie. Then we got ready and headed to the plaza by our hostel for a bike tour. The tour was…

Colombia: Day 2 (cartagena)

First night in the hostel was awesome- slept great most of the night! It’s weird having different people’s alarms going off at different times but not too disruptive. Got up around 6:30 because that’s my life and got coffee and hung out in the hostel lobby. At 730 we walked over to the port outside…

Colombia: day 1 (cartagena)

So day 1 technically spans two days but they blend together for sure!! We started at the San Diego airport at the bar that just happened to be right by our gate! Had a couple of glasses of champagne to put me in a sleepy mood and boarded our flight late, which is tooootally out…
