She is a fine artist who paints very intricate designs, so intricate that one of her favorite things to paint is insects especially beetles. She is very talented and at Tripoart we like to help and promote as many artists as we can, when I saw her art I thought it was fascinating that she paints such tiny and detailed work which has a rich historical and cultural significance.

Who’s Your Dean?

Reading the book On The Road (published in 1957) by Jack Kerouac reminds me of my own travels, that’s why I love it so much. It was heavily influenced by Jazz music and is considered a defining work of the Beat Generation. The characters in the book find entertainment in almost anything they come across, and if there’s nothing for them to do they just go out and ride, crisscrossing the country several times on a long mystical journey to discover the purpose of life.

Where To Live??

Big city, small city, little towns, or out in the country surrounded by the wilds of nature? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each place? More space, less space. More people, no people. Endless forms of entertainment or inventing ways to entertain yourself. Space for a farm, an art studio, or a home gym or the chance to go out and be entertained by the latest attractions of the city, while dining in the finest restaurants.

The Mongolian Art of Adaptation

After studying the life of Genghis Khan for years I became perplexed trying to figure out a way to incorporate his lifestyle and ideals into our modern world, without going on a murderous rampage across the continents. It's true that Genghis used violence to advance his place in society and bring his nation to the forefront of the ancient world, but he was much more than just a barbaric emperor. There was a method to his ways and a reason that he was able to conquer/unite so many from such different cultural and religious backgrounds.

Furniture Obsessions

When I first started working with wood as a teenager, I felt like I was traveling back in time. I used to roam around the shop, carrying a board of lumber on my shoulder or analyze my set of carving chisels laid out before me, deciding which one to use. As I worked, I imagined the countless generations of craftsmen who found themselves immersed in the same labor, developing the art of furniture making throughout the ages. I had my face in the history books just as much as I had my hands on the workbench.

The Most Touristic Town of Colombia, South America

A few hours from Bogota the capital of Colombia in a high altitude desert-like terrain lies Villa de Leyva, in the department of Boyaca. A well preserved and very quaint town with a history going back to prehistoric times. Villa de Leyva offers a little bit of everything for all types of tourists. Its history began during the Jurassic Period, with evidence of many fossils and remains of sea life. The most notable finding is the 35-foot aquatic reptile known as the Kronosaurus, which was uncovered towards the outskirts of town in 1977.

The Clay Village
Welcome To Raquira!

The Clay Village

In the heart of Colombia exists a town full of many dynamic and productive artists. Their style is a fusion of Indigenous, Spanish and Modern styles. They work in every color and material available, in fact the entire town has been elaborately hand painted. They are a very creative group, working with clay, paint, wood, metal, stone, natural fibers, used tires, pretty much anything they can get their hands on. I recently visited this amazing town, which is called Raquira, in the department of Boyaca. I like to go there whenever I have some time off from work.

“Hey, are you ready for this!?” asked Jeffrey, smiling from ear to ear. Dressed in his usual hippy attire, with a fluorescent colored t-shirt, various wooden, clay and stone beaded necklaces, strong hiking shoes, and sunglasses so dark and funky, that he looked like he could have been a character, straight out of an animated movie. “Come in, come in,” I said...

The Nomadic Chef

One of the best ways we can enjoy our travels is by cooking and trying new tasty foods.

Each country and region you visit, will have a wide range of new exotic cuisine to sample. You´ll learn new cooking techniques and recipes from every restaurant you dine in.
