Colombia / Travel Tales

Not all those who wander are lost. – J.R.R. Tolkien

The countdown has started and in about 2 weeks, we will be leaving for our second RTW.

We completed our first RTW (Rround-the-World Trip) 10 years ago and have decided that a decade is long enough to wait for a second one. So we’re starting this blog to document our trip as well as share our travel experiences with family, friends, and anyone else who is interested.

The blog will be some fun, some function. We intend to post interesting and funny things that we see and experience on this trip and maybe some trips and places in our past that we think you may find interesting. At the same time, we will let everyone know where we are and where we are bound. The picture that is included in this post is a good representation of the blog.

This picture is the set of poporos that I bought in Bogota, Colombia. They are replicas of museum pieces – probably from the Pre-Columbian Musica Culture. Colombia is a beautiful (and not very safe) country and for many reasons each poporo reminds me of my travels there. They were originally used as a storage containers for lime that was taken while chewing coca leaves. This sculpture, like our blog, has some fun, some function.

At the end of each post is a section for comments, which we welcome. Also, we have included a contact section for anyone who would prefer to email. We will answer as quickly as possible.

We think that Robert Louis Stevenson said it best:

“For my part, I travel not to go anywhere,
but to go.
I travel for travel’s sake.
The great affair is to move.”

Happy Trails,
James and Terri

    • Thanks for the comment Daal, and for dropping by the blog. This post was one of our earliest ones, and the kickoff for our second RTW. Like the first it was a wonderful trip, and we’re glad that you can follow along. ~James
