I’ve had an amazing few days in Bogotá!!!! Can’t wait to share everything I did… here are a few (maybe sideways, they’re from my phone) pics to tide you over. Currently waiting in the airport to board my first flight of the loooooooooong journey home.
Venice Beach is about a 15-minute Uber drive. It has a cool pedestrian boardwalk and a ton of vegan friendly options (on and nearby the beach). Btw: if you happen to be landing or taking off in a nearby terminal, there is also a Real Food Daily in Terminal 4 of LAX – it’s not great, but it is all vegan.
I’ve heard good things about Stuff I Eat, and Equelecua Cuban Cafe (both are about 20 minutes from the airport by car). There are some really good spots at Venice Beach like The Butcher’s Daughter, Fala Bar, and Blue Star Donuts. Plus you can enjoy the water over there!
torn between places to stay in Bogota… either an okay place closer to downtown and looks like lots of restaurant/food options close by… or an eco/sustainable hotel a little further away and double the price, but looks fabulous…. leaning towards the eco hotel, but don\’t want to spend all day going back and forth across the city…
How long are you in Bogota for? Is it reasonable to split your time so you get some of the benefits/experiences of both? I know it’s nice to just settle in wherever you’re staying for the duration of a trip, but maybe even one night at the eco hotel would be a nice treat for yourself 🙂
I was thinking of doing that… I’m only there for 3 nights, and arrive super late the first night… maybe I do all the “touristy” stuff the first day and a half and then enjoy the eco hotel on the last night? so many choices!
Okay, so looking for suggestions in Fukuoka, Kyoto, and Tokyo for places, or neighbourhoods, to stay in. I think we will just be in Fukuoka for one night (we fly in to there), then head to Kyoto for a few days (day trip to Osaka?), then do our walk to Tokyo (not the whole way, there are trains involved), then we fly to HK for a few days… All…[Read more]
We haven’t been to Fukuoka, but both Kyoto and Tokyo have excellent mass transportation systems so wherever you stay, it is really easy to get around. Especially if you use the Google Maps app (you can pre-download maps for each city so need to worry about coverage or roaming charges). I am not familiar with all the neighborhoods, but during our…[Read more]
Throwing it back to… MANATEE!!!!!!! We saw this girl in the marina after our eco tour in the keys… she’s obviously banged up a bit, but seemed to want to say hi… I might have cried a little bit (they’re my favourite)
Get a travel credit card… for the insurance! Usually travel credit cards come with an annual fee (sometimes waived the first year), but they can be really helpful if you get stuck somewhere. Be sure you understand the rules (if you have to put the whole flight on the card, or if you can split it, how long the delay has to be, etc) but the…[Read more]
@jenns Definitely good travel advice. Such a great idea especially if you can get the first year waved. We have an American Express with insurance as well. Haven’t had to use it yet but it will come in handy one day. 🙂
My grandmother want us to do the Nakasendo Way walk through Japan… has anyone ever done a walking tour in Japan? or any guided/organized tours? I\’ve sent them an email asking about the meals they include… feel like it might be hit or miss…
trying to catch up on my adventures from last month… staying put (somewhat) for the next little while… next international trip will be to Key West in May for the songwriter festival/birthday extraviganza!
