Let's go to
MARCH 18-23, 2020!!
Ladies, I am so excited to present this amazing opportunity to experience one of my favorite cities.
I visited Cartagena, Colombia, three times for a total of 8 weeks between August 2018-April 2019!
The initial visit was with my best friend as we celebrated our "friendaversary"! I fell so in love with the city that I decided to make that the destination of my first extended stay solo trip! 30 days solo! And then I returned in April 2019 for 3 weeks and had my mom with me for 5 of those days to treat her for her birthday! I had an amazing time during each trip. Great weather, great people, great food, great things to do, amazing history and I felt safe the entire time! Due to my love for travel, my desire for women to Live Well, and with so many people asking about Cartagena, I decided to host this travel experience!
Ladies! Let's Go! Yaaas!
BTW- That's me in the pic on my first night in Colombia!
