Guatape – The Most Colourful Town In Colombia

We visited the beautiful country of Colombia (not Columbia, the place in the U.S.) back in October but never got to write about it in the blog! So this is our first post. Eitan went to a bachelor party in Colombia with his friends and Sarah was able to join him after to travel around…

The Waterfalls: Misol Ha & Agua Azul

Close to the Lacandon jungle and the Usumacinta River, which divides Mexico and Guatemala, dozens of waterfalls are part of the landscape. The drive from San Cristobal de Las Casas to Palenque takes about 5 hours of very windy roads through the jungle. Every single person, we talked to recommended that we do not drive…

San Juan Chamula y Zinacantan

We drove a couple hours to the Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument. A remarkable outdoor laboratory, offering an opportunity to…

The Fjords

Today we travel from Bergen to Oslo passing through the Fjords, one of the world’s natural wonders. Most tourists choose to travel this route using the very well known “Norway In A Nutshell” tour, which is more like a package of pre-booked public transportation tickets. This tour package comes with a cost premium, so with…
