Our latest work includes freelance travel stories about luxury diving in the Galapagos Islands of Ecuador, the best new hotel of the year (so far) in Colombia, why you’ll want to linger around the border between Colombia and Ecuador plus Latin food coverage galore. Let’s get started.

We love the idea of Adventurous Luxury so we were glad to contribute this piece about the unconventional luxuries on a live aboard dive boat in the Galapagos Islands to the April issue of Luxe Beat magazine which is all about adventurous luxuries around the world.

The only reason to stop at most borders is to get your passport stamped and move on as quickly as possible. However, the few miles between Ipiales, Colombia and Tulcan, Ecuador you will find two reasons to linger including a very unlikely church and a very high-maintenance cemetery. Both are worth a visit, as we explain in our very first piece for the Atlas Obscura website.

And we keep raving about the food and drink scene in Colombia with new pieces about the acclaimed chef Leonor Espinosa, the queen of Colombian cuisine and the expanding world of Colombia’s Rausch brothers.
