LAN is running the Green & Gold Sweepstakes, giving away a trip for 2 to Colombia which includes visits to Bogota and Tayrona National Park.
The prize inclues airfare, hotel stay, travel insurance and gear from a bunch of different sponsors.
Kim and I visited Colombia 5 years back and had a great time checking out places around the country like Cartagena, Bogota and the Amazon. We’d love to go back and see more of the country so winning this contest would be a great way to do so! Continue reading Win A Trip to Colombia
AFAR is giving away a trip for two to Colombia including airfare. The trip is actually a tour with G Adventures, a company specializing in group adventure tours.
Kim and I took a couple of trips with G Adventures when they were known as GAP Adventures (around 8+ years back). Overall the tours were well ran, solid experiences. Continue reading Win A Trip to Colombia with G Adventures
Earlier in the month I wrote about Finding Banksy In Coney Island. The controversial graffiti artists took up “residency” in NYC for one month and was leaving his mark all over the city.
I only had the opportunity to see one of his pieces in person. I tried to see a couple of others but they were already covered up (so that they could be preserved) by the time I stopped by.
After following Banksy’s residency (mainly) online, it made me think about graffiti and a post that I wrote about street art back in the middle of 2012. I thought it would make for a fun post to re-share for this week’s Flashback Friday.
Here is the post:

While on our trip to Colombia, Kim and I were surprised by how much we enjoyed Bogota.
We really liked wandering around the city. An area that we passed through each day was Bolivar Square. It always seemed to be busy and full of people having a good time. There are shops and museums near the square and the presidential palace is also close by.
During one of our visits to the square, I decided that it was a great place for a jump!
A couple of months back I was reading a Lonely Planet newsletter which had a short article related to street art. A LP Magazine reader sent in a question asking- Where can I see Amazing Street Art? (Check out the article HERE
The article answered the question with three suggestions- Belgium, Pittsburgh and Melbourne. I’ve been to Belgium and Melbourne and don’t remember the street art. Maybe I didn’t pay attention to it or it just did not catch my eye.
