"In my perception, the world wasn't a graph or formula or an equation. It was a story." Cheryl Strayed, from the movie Wild.
It is my first time to visit the famous Terraces. Batad part of the Ifugao Terraces is a breathtaking sight and will definitely bring out the wanderlust in you.

The traffic can be unbearable, the food is an acquired taste, the market can be a tourist trap, and the people - "same,same but different" as the slogan shirts say. There is something about the city that I can't pinpoint but the concoction of all the elements is a love potion that keeps you coming back for more.

Sleeping in an old Riad in Marrakesh. A riad is a traditional Moroccan house or palace with an interior garden or courtyard. A really great find and a cheap place to stay. This was my home for days, and where I met a lot of other travelers.

"Sitting there, alone in a foreign country, far from my job and everyone I know, a feeling came over me. All I can say is that I felt, at the same time, joy and sadness. But not too much sadness, because I felt alive. Yes, alive." - Paris, I love You (2006)
I'm in love. Never have I felt this to a place except for my home country of course. But this place, La Candelaria in Bogota, gorgeous. Colombian writer Gabriel Garcia Marquez once wrote that what matters in life is not what happens to you but what you remember and how you remember it. This is my last stop in this crazy journey of mine in the south, and I know that I'll remember it by heart.

"The core of man's spirit comes from new experiences". - Into the Wild (2007)
Bogota, Colombia, I didnt know anything about it. It was really just a three day stopover, and I wasn't really expecting much. But sometimes, it is with the least expected that we are rewarded with a great time. I was already in awe with Sao Paulo and Cochabamba's graffitis. And here in Bogota, the whole town became a willing canvass of great street art. I'm speechless.
