Today started out with a tour of Ernest Hemingway’s mansion. He spent a ton of time in Cuba – as in Key West – writing. I’ve never been a huge fan of Hemingway (don’t judge!) but his mansion was fascinating. …

Cartagena Colombia is SEXY

http://www.adventuretravelinggirl.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/image1-1024x768.jpeg
