After a successful trip to Barbados together, my trusty travel friends and I were on the hunt for another winter escape. Colombia was never on my radar, but it came highly recommended. We gave it a go. While everyone else said "Why Colombia?" we said "Why not?".
Medellin, Cartagena, the island of Provedencia and Bogota were on the itinerary. The journey was long, luggage was lost and I did admittedly have brief moments wondering if this was the best idea. But yes, yes it was the best idea. We were treated to fresh and delicious food, a feast of colour, the bluest, clearest waters I have ever seen, a renewed appreciation for Shakira, improved Spanish, so much fish, secluded beaches and an overall taste of the soulful life.
