While my main purpose for traveling to Cartagena was to meet my dad and brother there, I did have two days between New Years in Bogota and their arrival. Thankfully, since I hate traveling alone, some friends from school also planned to be in the city during those days.
We spent time strolling the streets of Cartagena and taking a mud bath with strangers, but we also spent a lot of time taking pictures. My friend Sam is well-known for always being behind the camera and she takes crazy fun, creative and goofy pictures. She even brought props for picture taking! I also love taking pictures and everyone we were with humored us enough to be part of the experience. The result is a series of photos that still have me laughing and remembering a fun vacation!

Poolside lounging wth Rob and Mike...I apparently couldn't be bothered to lift my head up for this photo.
