Coming from a country with a zero tolerance policy to street art and graffiti (beyond commissioned murals, which also often get painted over), I was excited to experience the street art scene in Colombia, having heard about it from other travellers. I went on two free street art tours while in Colombia, one in Cartagena and one in Bogotá, both of which I highly recommend.
Gabriel Garcia Márquez’s Love in the Time of Cholera, though the primary location is never stated, is said to take place in Cartagena. At the very least, it was inspired by Cartagena – this was the place where Márquez dreamed; perhaps, even where Márquez’s version of magical realism was invented.
The Skyline Trail in Jasper National Park is at the top of many hikers’ lists – so much so, that when reservations for the season open up at the end of January, you’d best hope you’re online when it opens to secure a campsite for your choice of dates.
