5 things I learned from 4 days in Colombia

The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experiences. - Eleanor Roosevelt

Cartagena, Colombia had been on my radar for years & finally in December 2016 I resolved to get there in 2017. Alone or with friends, it was happening. 

After sending out a few texts, along with some emails, in about 2 weeks 2 friends & I were all set - hotel & flights booked. Done! My desire lived in me for 2 years before I actually decided to make it happen no matter what. There were always reasons that made so much sense in my head as to why I couldn't go but the truth was I had been spending money on & making time for dinners, clothes, and other miscellaneous items that brought me momentary pleasure but it wasn't until I got focused and adopted the no matter what mentality did I make it happen.
