Well, if you happen to answer yes to any of these, then have I got the place just for you! Welcome to the Republic of Colombia in South America! Here, you will be able to get a much-needed break from the old city life, and be able to explore the wild jungles of one of the most biodiverse cities in the world! But which places should you go and visit first then? Well, here are just some of the best sights to see in Colombia just for you! 

San Agustin.

The first step that you should take when visiting Colombia is the village of San Agustin. This village is home to over 500 monoliths, statues, and carvings! It is a great segway into the outside world because of its great and simple infrastructures and historical background. Speaking of history, the monoliths and statues I mentioned were actually made around 100 A.D and 1200 A.D. These artifacts from a different time are here to remind us of the ancient civilizations that used to inhabit the land. Pretty great for a start huh? 

Cartagena. 

Have you ever watched the blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean? Well, if your answer is yes then chances are, you’ve seen Cartagena, or at least a recreated version of it in the movies. But if you want to experience what life was like back in those days, then there is an actual Cartagena located in Colombia. With colorful and colonial architecture, get ready to be set back in time to those days where pirates ran amock and everybody wore fancy and hot clothes. So if you’ve ever wanted to be a pirate, then this is the place just for you. 

Tayrona National Park. 

When it comes to beaches, only a few can rival the shores that Colombia has. Especially here, in Tayrona National Park. It is a place where you will be able to experience true oneness with nature and indulge in the beauty of South American beaches. But that is not all there is to this place. In Tayrona National Park, you will also be able to explore and study ancient ruins that are sure to pique your interest. And if you just want to relax, then you can also set up camp under the coconut trees near the beaches, or maybe visit the swamps or scrublands. Either way, Tayrona National Park has it all for you! 

Conclusion. 

When you want to take a break from all the hustling and bustling, or maybe enjoy some of nature’s finest, then head on over to Colombia in South America. It may be a way to go, but that is the whole point of getting away from it all really. So if you’re in need of some of the best beaches in the world, or maybe re enact your pirate dream, then you know just where to go now. …

Best Hikes in Missouri.

Missouri is such a huge state, covered with fields and mountains that can just really bring out the inner nature lover in you. It’s these lands that make you re-think your life and see it in a much more beautiful way. And when you go and hike them, you’ll find yourself immersed in a feeling that is primal yet calming. So if you’re looking for some of the best trails to feel this feeling, here are the best places you can hike in Missouri 

Lost Valley Trail

With a distance of eleven miles, this trail is often used by mountain bikers that are just starting to get into the sport. But don’t think that is the only way to enjoy such a great trail. Because this trail is actually just as, or even more, beautiful when approached by foot. 

This trail will lead you through dozens of trials from forests, to weirdly shaped rock formations, waterfalls, and old homesteads with natural springs. This trail is sure to bring out that inner adventurer in you, and isn’t that what we all crave when we go out for a hike? 

Ozark Trail 

Now this trail may still be under construction, and actually stretches out a couple five hundred miles, it is still without a doubt one of the best trails for you to hike in Missouri. The trail is so huge actually, that it is divided up into thirteen sections just so that it can be navigated better. 

And the highlight of this whole trail? Well, it’s the entire trail itself really, but it’s also the Taum Sauk section as well. This is mainly due to the fact that you will be trekking through million-year-old mountains that make it seem like you’re an adventurer discovering them for the first time. And it’s not just rocky rough surfaces on this trail, because along the way you’ll also be able to encounter verdant glades and rolling forests that are sure to make anybody stop and meditate for a while. 

Natural tunnel Trail

From the name itself, this trail will direct you to one of the most beautiful geological wonder in the world. The natural tunnel spans 296 feet in length, while the whole trail is just about thirteen miles in total. Though it is pretty small, and there is not much else to see, the mere sight of this natural tunnel will make you feel as if you’ve discovered a never before seen wonder in the world. And that in itself is worth all the trouble of getting there. 

Buford Mountain 

Though it may seem like your typical mountain trail at first, it is actually one of the most amazing and worthwhile views you will ever get in this great state. To get to the top, you’ll need to dig deep in order to keep going. But trust me when I say this, the peak is absolutely worth every sweat. 

Once you do get to the peak, not only will you be able to catch a glimpse of most of the state, but if you stay the night, you will be able to see the night sky absolutely erupt with some of the most beautiful stars you will ever see. Now tell me, is that not worth it? …
