gadventures Lord Curzon described Alleppey (located in the Kerala, South India) as the "Venice of the East.” The water buffalo who live there are more than happy to stay in the cool waters of their home (which provides relief from the scorching Indian sun). After soaring down from the Himalayas, however, this raven can’t wait to take off on his next journey. Steal seven seconds and watch him take flight. 3d

gadventures Standing 10 metres high and stretching over 20 metres across, these fishing nets were brought to Kochi over six centuries ago by traders from Kublai Khan, once ruler of the Mongol Empire. Today, you only need carry the freshly caught fish a few minutes away to a street vendor, who will fry it for you as a delicious snack. 5d

gadventures "Looking down from the upper terraces of Teyuna (the "Lost City") on a ridge in the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Not much is known about this place, but it is believed to have been built by the Tayrona civilization in AD 800, some 600 years before Machu Picchu in Peru. Reaching the Lost City requires a 46km (29 mi) round-trip trek through tropical forests, across rivers and up 1,200 stone stairs. It was a challenging trek, but one that exceeded our expectations in so many ways.” @uncornered_market #gadv 1w

gadventures “Back streets of Cartagena’s Old Town. This colourful UNESCO site has kept much of its colonial architecture and feel, making it a popular stop along Colombia’s Caribbean coast. The streets always seem to be full of action with musicians, dancers, fruit vendors, horse-drawn carriages, and a general Caribbean beat. It’s easy to get pleasantly lost here.” @uncornered_market #gadv 1w

gadventures Dance in Colombia is an entrancing fusion of native culture, mixed with influences from Africa and Europe. This has birthed a striking and individual set of styles, the most popular of which are Vallenato, salsa, Merengue, Cumbia and Bambuco. Take seven seconds, step into a square in Cartagena, and check out these slick moves. 1w

gadventures “Morning hike through the cloud forest of the Cocora Valley, dotted with wax palms that can reach over 60m (197 ft) in height. We can understand why so many people told us this was their favourite place in Colombia.” @uncornered_market #gadv 2w

gadventures “Colombian coffee country in the hills of the central branch of the Andes. A visit to a coffee farm in Quindio provides us with an inside look at what goes into making our favourite morning drink, from planting to harvesting to roasting. Interesting coffee factoid of the day: 100kg (220 lbs) of coffee berries = 13kg (29 lbs) of roasted coffee beans.” @uncornered_market #gadv 2w
