Cartagena, Colombia

Cartagena transported me to a different time and place. Never have I seen such a cluster of fabulously maintained buildings, as well as narrow streets and plazas, all within the colonial walled city, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site ( UNESCO World Heritage Site ).

Every step inside those walls was essentially a TravelingReal moment. The extremely colorful buildings continuously kept me in awe, which, in certain ways, is symbolic: South America is a colorful continent. Colorful in the literal sense, with the clothing and crafts made by artisans; colorful in its magnificent nature; colorful in its people.

And there you have it — Lima, Peru to Cartagena, Colombia. A perfect (unplanned) itinerary.
