I'll have to report on Cartagena when i get back but I know that my grandmother's experience lined up with the negative outlook. Yeaaaars ago but the taxi driver refused to take her to Cali because of bandidos. She enjoys telling the story, at least! I'm not too concerned about my safety there, at least not more than I am at any other destination. Lesson? Travel smart wherever you are.
I could picture how self-consciously anxious I would have felt having not read this, Haha!
Always good to have up to date info on opportunities like this. For Redditors, r/IWantOut is a good sub to get some perspective on specific destinations. Thanks Jonny
I really like Katie's use for planning and on-the-go tracking. I actually use automated sub-savings accounts instead of Mint, but it's a good idea if you don't budget that way already.
I'm always amazed at the number of people looking to fly there. Maybe it's my own ignorance at work! Great photos--would love to see more commentary.
100% agree. This is what all airlines should be doing right now. (not exactly, just something as useful/interesting)
Not a fan of articles where I have to click through for each destination...I fee like it's inconsiderate :(
This is a great read and really engaging. Nice!
I don't usually go for short, photo-driven stuff but I really loved this. Amazing how places can change over such a short term. I would love to see a before, middle, and after of Dubai and Cancun.
This is a super long read! But it's completely worth it, pretty amazing story about a couple of gents trying to row from Africa to Miami.
Shoot, two photo driven posts in one day. Hope yall enjoy this one, too. Pretty amazing photography
I found this to be a great list of possible destinations, so I'm sure the travelers among us would be interested in some amazing, obscure destinations. Anyone care to add to the list? I'm at a loss!
Lot's of great photos.
Liked this a lot, thanks Matt
Interesting to hear how cultures evolve in such a different fashion. I used to listen/research punk when I was much younger. As I was reading I could almost feel that zeitgeist seeping through.
I actually came across this half-built guide via G+: http://www.totorotimes.com/urban-exploration/the-gunkanjima-odyssey/This first part is more focused on the history there, but there's a rabbit hole of information in this link. Very interesting story.
Absolutely stunning photos. Exactly the kind of wonder I think of when I think Patagonia
I love to read what Clay Shirky writes, very thoughtful in his presentation.
