Cartagena will always have my heart.
Cartagena is truly a special place for me. I went with my boyfriend at the time and we stayed at the Sofitel Santa Clara. If you are ever looking at hotels to stay in Cartagena, the Sofitel is it – there’s even a garden with tropical birds that fly around when you eat breakfast. I’m serious.
One night at the top of the hotel, while overlooking the sunset and the ocean, he got down on one knee (well more like squatted because he was so nervous) and asked me to marry him. I said yes and the rest is history.
After, we opened a bottle of Dom Perignon and drank 10 glasses of wine, after which, both of us could not remember what happened the next day and we had to remind ourselves, we were finally engaged. Calling him my fiancé the next morning was so weird and I had to practice it throughout the day. Now, he will almost be my husband soon and I have to get used to calling him my husband!
It was a wonderful vacation and one that I will always treasure as one of the best moments of my life.
