Guide of Medellin: Enjoy the trendiest city in South America

Medellin has something that traps you there. I won’t say Medellin is a beautiful city, it’s not full of monuments or places to visit, but of course it has some of that too. I would say that for example Cartagena is a beautiful city, and Medellin is city to experience. That’s the reason it’s so […]

Galapagos for backpackers: low cost guide

Few years ago, I went backpacking through South America. Very often, people  ask me what my favourite place is out of many I have visited. To be honest, I do not find this question quite fair. It is the same, as when you ask a child “Who do you love the most, mommy or daddy?” Choosing just […]
