So when I found Cajun Encounters tour company and saw that they offered several options for exploring the areas surrounding New Orleans, I was eager to set…

I was there for nearly five days, so I definitely got to see most of what the city has to offer. We spent…

Cuba is literally another world. It’s messy, it’s dirty, it’s hot, it’s crazy, it’s busy, it’s colorful, and it’s hectic. There are so many ways to describe it. And Havana is at the heart of it all.

And while I have always wanted to visit Colombia, Bogota wasn’t really on that list. I think that the city of Bogota gets a bad rap. I mean, I totally understand where it’s coming from because the history of the city and the crime rate isn’t all that…
