Nat’s travel list for 2013:

This is a list of realistic/unrealistic travel goals I have for the next year:

1. D.C./NYC: Planning on visiting my older sister in Washington D.C. during my Spring Break. Hopefully going during late March, right after my birthday, & just in time for the National Cherry Blossom Festival! Right after, I’d be taking a $50 bus ride to the great city of New York. I have friends (old & new) and some family there that I haven’t seen in a hot minute. It’d be nice to go & see what all the hype is about, being that I was around 9 years old the last time I went.

2. Sydney, Australia: AKA my home way away from home. I will finally be reunited with all the beautiful, wonderful people I met while I lived there for six months. Six years later, I have changed a great deal, and I’m sure they have as well. Sydney will be just as beautiful though, I imagine.

& who knows what else!

*I am going to Miami in two days, but that doesn’t count being that I live there, for the most part. It’ll be exciting to see my family & friends though & I do feel like I need to get out of this city again. As much as I love New Orleans, it’s best to take a break from time to time. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, after all.

Şirince village readies for ‘Doomsday’ events

Believers in the Mayan calendar’s doomsday prediction of Dec. 21 are flooding Şirince, a small village in İzmir. Some New Age spiritualists are convinced that the Anatolian town is the only safe haven from the impending apocalypse foretold by certain interpretations of Mayan hieroglyphs, Agence France Press (AFP) has reported….”

Interesting article. What do you guys think?

If you had to spend doomsday anywhere in the world, where would it be & why?

Two summers ago, I visited Colombia, where I was born. However, I didn’t remember ever going to Medellin, my mother’s birthplace, and decided to travel from my hometown of Cali to Medellin.

This is a picture of what is called La Piedra Del Peñol, or El Peñón de Guatapé. This mysterious stone is located between the border of the two Colombian cities located in Medellin: Guatape, and El Peñol, hence its name. The two cities have become rivals in deciding where the rock resides, and who it belongs to. People in the city of Guatape even went as far as to write giant graffiti on the rock. The letters G & U can be clearly seen in the distance on on this Colombian monument.

From my understanding, scientists are still unsure of how this rock came to be & what it is made from. Locals believe it holds mystical powers and that it is a meteorite/alien site.

Whatever it is, it is an impressive sight to behold. I hope to revisit one day.
