I love to travel and see new things and places, but what travel most importantly offers me is a new way of seeing myself. When I am surrounded by unfamiliar setting I become more mindful and this trip was no exception. As I was going through the pictures to select the ones I want to share here, I was mesmerized once again how beautiful, unique and in a way, untouched Cartagena is. It’s not as grand as Paris or Florence with its art and history but it is as romantic. It transforms you to another era with its vibrant architecture, colonial style heritage buildings, intricate balconies adorned with blooming pink flowers and the doors, those colorful doors that invite you to sit by them on the footsteps, to pause and to take it all in.
