Travelling in Style from Cartagena to Ushuaia

I’ve been fortunate enough to do my fair share of travelling in style on luxurious commissions for This Is Cartagena, Wallpaper* magazine and Jetsetter but the Global Rally guys starting out on a truly remarkable 7,000 mile voyage from Cartagena de Indias to Ushuaia, Argentina take it to another level completely.

Cruising through Colombia in a 1958 Aston Martin DB MkII escorted by a couple of vintage Jaguars, a mint Mercedes and Austin Healy, now that’s what I call moving gracefully.

It’s really quite amazing to see the likes of Jens and Anne, the parents of a good friend of mine from the UK starting out on a truly remarkable voyage from Cartagena de Indias to Ushuaia, Argentina in their vintage 1953 Bentley.

Just 10 years ago – maybe even 5 years ago – it would have been unthinkable that Global Rally’s La Gira Andina would weave its way through the Colombian countryside with such carefree abandon.

A collection of 20 classic cars driven by some seriously high net worth individuals used to attract all the wrong sort of attention. Not any more.

Fortunately Colombia is a very different country these days and that means that this very special convoy will be able to take in some very special scenery as it weaves its way from Cartagena de Indias to Aguachica via Aracataca and Bosconia towards the sublimely pretty Santanderean town of Barichara, the Colombian capital Bogotá, colonial Popayan and Pasto.

They're going to have a blast.

There are more pictures of the cars in Cartagena here and you can follow the group's progress here.
