Tom Germain

I was born and raised in Montreal, later moving to Toronto and other parts of Ontario. I spent years working in the financial sector, then discovered the Internet in 1996 and soon became a consultant, a business that still pays my bills today. Making a living from the Internet is significant because it eventually allowed me to live practically anywhere in the world, as my physical location was not that important business-wise.

In 2001, I decided I did not want to endure the harsh Canadian weather and resettled on the island of Cozumel, Mexico. My hunger for exotic surroundings did not stop there, as I later made my home in Argentina, Spain (Canary Islands), Mauritius, and finally Colombia.

I still maintain a home in Windsor (Ontario), Canada, and another in Florida, but my family, namely my wife and 2 year old daughter, is anchored in Medellin.

There is a lot of entertainment and activities for the young in this country, but what does it have for those pushing or over forty, fifty, and beyond somethings? As one of "them," and as a resident of this splendid land, I proffer a series of articles that will help you navigate the areas that interest people like us! For this first installment, let us get night clubbing, dining and shopping out of the way!

The Tayrona Trek: Mandatory

If you visit the Caribbean area of Colombia, an absolutely mandatory side trip from Santa Marta is the Tayrona National park (Parque Nacional Tayrona). This is a protected coastal tropical forest, most of which you can only access by foot, donkey, or boat, thus guaranteeing an adventure away from civilization.
