After a few weeks in Cartagena, it was time to set to off to Medellin, Colombia! I spent the extra time in Cartagena getting my bike ready and spending time with friends. I loved my time in Cartegena, but it was time to get me and my motorbike on the road again, and Medellin would be the perfect second stop.
After we had boarded the Stahlratte, we were told to get to our bunks and sort out our luggage and then reconvene in 15 minutes on the upper deck for a full briefing before we headed out to sea. All the cases went into storage areas, and I had a lower bunk and kept my backpack, helmet, clothes bad (including wash bag) and tank bag with my bed.
Colombia is one of my favorite countries in the world. The people are happy, the cities steeped in history. One place I have returned to often is Cartagena, a long history and its old city is gorgeous.
