Hear about travel to Cartagena and Northern Colombia as the Amateur Traveler talks to Inge from about this South American country that her family fell in love with.

Why should you go to Colombia?

Inge says, “I think first of all, if you are a nature lover, you should go to Colombia because it’s amazing nature you will find there. It’s still quite authentic. You have amazing wildlife. If you like bird watching it’s the country to go to. You have mountains, beaches, desert, jungle.”

In South America, travelers hike the busy streets of the various cities clutching tightly to their preferred brand of travel guide. The books they so dearly adhere to describe Cartagena de Indias, found on Colombia’s portion of the Caribbean coast, in verbiage such as “nostalgic,” “charming,” and “romantic.” And the truth is, to have endured through so much, and in such a dignified fashion, is in itself somewhat of an achievement. However, when arriving in Cartagena by boat or plane or bus the hoards of travellers that reach the colonial city on their pilgrimages realize that there is much more going on in this city than their precious travel bibles have led them to believe...

Melbourne – a hip, trendy, and vibrant Australian city brimming with culture. Its neighbourhoods have personalities of their own, ranging from bohemian quarters with amazing restaurants and fashion boutiques, to edgy, artsy areas that are home to more tattoo shops than a city could possibly need. It’s impossible to truly understand the cultural centre that is Melbourne without actually living there. And it’s equally as difficult to explore it as a visitor.

I’ve been to Melbourne 4 times. Each time, discover a whole new side of the incredibly complicated and fascinating city that has topped the charts of the World’s Most Liveable Cities. But despite my frequent visits, I couldn’t possibly try to share the best that this city has to offer without some local help. Luckily, a few of my friends and locals were eager to share their tips and recommendations for things to do in Melbourne.
