Love and Adventure: Our Journey to Tamesis
We went on an exciting adventure to the beautiful town of Tamesis in Colombia. As passionate motorcycle lovers, we couldn’t resist the appeal of the open road. The journey promised two and a half hours of anticipation and excitement.
At the start of our journey, we had to choose between a rugged dirt road or a more common route prone to traffic jams. We decided to take the less-traveled path and ventured onto the dirt highway. It was a thrilling experience, with the breeze gently touching our faces as we enjoyed the freedom of the open road.
As we approached Tamesis, the scenery transformed, and the dirt road became challenging terrain, adding to the challenge of our journey. The final 35 minutes leading to the town were an exhilarating adventure as we skillfully maneuvered our motorcycle through the twisting and turning paths. Although the rugged terrain might not be ideal for cars, it was an absolute blast for us on our trusty motorcycle.
Upon reaching our destination, we were warmly greeted and checked into our familiar and beloved hotel. The accommodations were comfortable, and the staff was friendly, reaffirming our decision to choose this place once again. We wholeheartedly recommend it, as we relished in the comforting familiarity, feeling like we were returning to an old friend’s home.
What can you do in Tamesis?
During our stay, we were determined to make the most of our time and embarked on a challenging hike to the summit of Cristo Rey. This monumental statue overlooked the city from a height of 2200 feet, promising breathtaking views. As we looked at awe-inspiring photographs, we mentally prepared ourselves for the adventure ahead.
Undoubtedly, the hike proved to be one of the toughest challenges we faced in Colombia. It required not only physical endurance but also mental resilience. We navigated through steep and slippery paths that seemed to defy gravity. Along the way, we took countless breaks, catching our breath and admiring the stunning natural beauty around us.
It took us nearly three hours to reach the summit, with each step serving as a testament to our determination and unwavering spirit. The absence of alternative routes down added a sense of accomplishment and isolation. With no means of transportation other than our own two feet, we felt immense pride in our achievement.
