I always feel a little bit of anxiety in the days leading up to a big international trip: Are all our transportation and accommodations accounted for? Am I going to get along with my travel partner? Have I been hyping this up too much? These are the types of questions that were swirling around my head before Eric and I took off for Colombia this past December. I’d been planning for months, checking the weather compulsively, coordinating with family in Bogota, pinning and TripAdvisor-ing like crazy. Then the day finally came, and it was time to put all those plans to action.
Four months later, and I’m still reeling from our adventure. Somehow, in just two short weeks, Colombia forged a permanent place in our hearts. Every person we met felt like an old friend, every meal was better than the last, and every destination was dubbed “our new favorite city.” This week, I was finally able to sit down and put together a brief recap of it all… click through for all the delicious details, and be sure to check back again for more updates in the future, as something tells me this won’t be our last tour through Colombia.
