traveling with friends

As close friends know, I take extensive notes on most places I visit. I thought I would share the notes from a ~12-day trip in Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Naoshima and Koyasan in case someone else finds them useful in planning their trip!

Some of the details (see: train times) will no longer be relevant, but may still be helpful to other planners as samples of timetables for inter-city travel.

To access notes, click on the image below and expand in a new window.

If I were doing this all over again I would just spend one or two more days in Naoshima exploring the art on the island. Otherwise, I recommend this itinerary for a first-time traveler to Japan!

Safe travels!

Earlier this year four lovely friends visited me in Bogotá for a long weekend. I decided to take them to Colombia’s famous coffee region and created this document to give them context about what we would be seeing.

I do this for most of the trips I take but these notes are more ‘opinionated’. Other Colombians may have a different perspective on some issues, so keep that in mind and feel free to shoot me a note with any questions you may have.

I  wrote this with my friends in mind hoping they would find it informative and helpful – hopefully, it worked. :)

Finally, excited to share a few of my favorite pictures from our trip to the coffee region.

Safe travels!
