Greetings readers, in this opportunity I will write a little of my experience traveling to Colonia Tovar, a small town located in the mountains of Aragua with a very peculiar history, it has architectural, cultural and agronomic characteristics that were maintained for a long time by Germans, becoming a German colony that was in these mountains isolated for some time, allowing the rooting of its folklore and customs.

Saludos lectores, en esta oportunidad les escribiré un poco de mi experiencia viajando a la Colonia Tovar, un pueblito ubicado en las montañas de Aragua con una historia muy peculiar, este posee características arquitectónicas, culturales y agronómicas que fueron mantenidas desde hace mucho tiempo por alemanes, convirtiéndose en una colonia alemana que estuvo en estas montañas aislada por algún tiempo, permitiendo el arraigue de su folklore y costumbres.

Between the mixture of colors of the landscape, the sky, streams, and different types of vegetation begins the ascent towards the colonial zone already mentioned, with each kilometer traveled the panorama of the environment changed, the wind felt cooler and the view changed, since the higher I climbed, I obtained a better appreciation of the landscape, and of that long road that I had to travel.

Entre la mezcla de colores del paisaje, el cielo, riachuelos, y diferentes tipos de vegetación comienza el ascenso hacia la zona colonial ya mencionada, con cada kilómetro recorrido el panorama del ambiente cambiaba, el viento se sentía más fresco y la vista cambiando, ya que mientras más alto subía, obtenía una mejor apreciación del paisaje, y de aquel largo camino que tocaba recorrer.

Landscape / Paisaje

On this road we travelers made several stops, in viewpoints and places that in my opinion allowed us to contemplate the road and offered an extraordinary view, we also arrived at a tourist stop with a colonial look. This place had several places to eat, bathrooms, a viewpoint and a business to make paragliding jumps, which I found extraordinary because of the adventure that the place can offer the traveler.

En este camino los viajeros hicimos varias paradas, en miradores y lugares que a mi parecer permitían contemplar el camino recorrido y ofrecían una vista extraordinaria, también llegamos a una parada turística con aspecto colonial. Este lugar poseía varios lugares de comida, baños, un mirador y un negocio para realizar saltos en parapente, cosa que me pareció extraordinaria debido a la aventura que le puede ofrecer el lugar al viajero.

I will also tell you about the viewpoint that has this place known as "Placivel" located on the road La Victoria - Colonia Tovar, among its physical characteristics has a trellis that allows the observation of a safe way to all the natural landscape that this place offers us, also on the site were windsocks, which apart from being a contribution to the knowledge of the direction and speed of the wind, are a very original detail.

También les contare del mirador que posee este lugar conocido como “Placivel” ubicado en la carretera La Victoria – Colonia Tovar, entre sus características físicas tiene un enrejado que permite la observación de manera segura a todo el paisaje natural que este lugar nos ofrece, también en el sitio se encontraban mangas de viento, las cuales aparte de ser un aporte para el conocimiento de la dirección y velocidad del viento, son un detalle muy original.

In this place I ate something that is customary to try in this area, this dessert was the popular strawberries with creams, these are served in a glass which contained strawberries, whipped cream and condensed milk. This dessert was fantastic and as I felt like hydrating I accompanied this dessert with a peach juice, something not very common, but both were delicious.

En este lugar comí algo que se acostumbra a probar en esta zona, este postre fueron las populares fresas con cremas, estas se sirven en un vaso el cual contenía las fresas, crema batida y leche condensada. Este postre estaba fantástico y como tenía ganas de hidratarme acompañe este postre con un jugo de durazno, algo no muy común, pero ambos estuvieron deliciosos.
