2017, A Year to Myself

by Mimi McFadden @ The Atlas Heart

I never expected 2017 to be a year to myself, but then again, I guess you never really know what life will bring you with each new year. I should know better by now. Even though I didn’t expect it to be a year to myself, I can say with full clarity now that I’m […]

Cartagena in all its colonial, colourful (and mud-covered!) glory, Colombia

by kelleyjanelowry@gmail.com @ Pondering Perth Girl

We arrived into Cartagena pretty late at night following a lengthy 12-hour transit from Capurgana and it wasn’t until the next morning that we got our first real glimpse of what a beautiful place Colombia’s largest seaside city truly is. As with most of the Spanish influenced towns we have visited (most of Central America), […]

Panama City, the Canal and an itinerary change, Panama

Panama City, the Canal and an itinerary change, Panama

by kelleyjanelowry@gmail.com @ Pondering Perth Girl

Our original itinerary did not include more than a couple of hours in Panama City, however once we decided to skip Costa Rica in favour of Colombia, it made more sense to fly directly from Managua (Nicaragua) into Panama City as opposed to spending five-plus days making the overland journey. The decision to forgo Costa […]

A Daytrip to Guatapé and La Piedra from Medellin, Colombia

by kelleyjanelowry@gmail.com @ Pondering Perth Girl

When researching things to do from Medellin, something that recurringly appeared was a daytrip to a small town nearby called Guatapé. Always keen for a daytrip that allows us to get out of the big cities and into the countryside, we quickly set aside our last full day in Medellin for this daytrip – and boy, […]

Medellin and its ‘famous criminal’ Pablo Escobar, Colombia

Medellin and its ‘famous criminal’ Pablo Escobar, Colombia

by kelleyjanelowry@gmail.com @ Pondering Perth Girl

With only a comparatively short time in Colombia (approximately three weeks), we decided to take advantage of the cheap domestic flights and fly from Cartagena to Medellin. In hindsight, this was a godsend as Dave was still sick from the disgusting water he had accidently swallowed whilst at Totuma Volcano and a ten hour bus […]

Short-Term Animal Volunteer Opportunities Abroad

From the many stray dogs I saw roaming around Greece, to the homeless kittens in Thailand, and yes, even dogs who were rotting from the […]
