Travel Log: Cartagena, Colombia

This last week's snow and freezing temperatures in Seattle has me wanting to go back to warm and sunny Cartagena! Thanksgiving feels like a lifetime ago when we enjoyed three nights and four days in this beautiful colonial city on Colombia's Caribbean coast, exploring the historic old town and enjoying a beach day on the nearby island of Tierra Bomba. Cartagena is a popular cruise ship stop, but is also gaining in popularity for independent travelers who want to experience incredible food/drinks/nightlife, incredible artwork/architecture, and that wonderful Caribbean climate! I convinced my husband to wake up early with me one morning and take photos while the streets were still empty, mapping out our walking route to hit specific streets and landmarks along the way that highlight just a hint of Cartagena's beauty. Please read on to see why I fell in love with Cartagena.
