When you hear the name Venezuela what images might this stir up in your brain? I created my own travelogue and recently spent sixty days traveling around Venezuela with my digital camera and backpack. What I learned about the country was both interesting and educational. Anyone who has been following politics would realize their is a big difference between President Bush’s and President Chavez’s policies. That is true!
Fellow travelers mostly from European countries and the small hostel owners all had comments on what they thought the country needed. But what I learned mostly was regardless of their politics they were all people. People with soul, who have the same wants and desires that we have—people who constantly kissed their babies in their homes on travel buses and ferries— and people who love their country almost to a fault.
Venezuela’s natural beauty will draw you in with it’s spectacular waterfalls, colonial towns hidden away high in the Andes, pristine beaches dotted with palm trees, and small fishing villages, where the mountains literally cascade into the sea— leaving you almost spellbound.
That’s the Venezuela I saw through my lens and one that will leave me smiling with lasting memories.
If you bookmark or check back from time to time you can travel along for the ride and see some of the off the beaten path photos, visit a mountain hot spring, hike on an original Spanish trail, discover some hidden beaches, visit colonial and mountain towns that are chocked full of culture and local color, and hopefully of all —to wet your appetite to just keep traveling.
