Colombia used to only conger up images of drug lords, kidnappings and violence. Yet if you keep up on the travel beat you’ll know that times having changed, and Colombia’s idyllic beaches and lush forests are ripe for discovery. It is, by all accounts, now safe to add Colombia back to your travel bucket lists.
I am not sure what we’ll be able to swing in 2013 but I am really needing a new stamp in my passport. It has been so long since Mike and I have traveled abroad and we’re both feeling it. Peru and Argentina are two locations we’ve tossed out most recently, but here and there I keep coming across things on Colombia…how gorgeous it is, how protected it still is from throngs of tourists, how amazingly kind and welcoming the people are…I am intrigued.
I mean, with a beach like this, how could you not start researching flights?
Do you know anyone who has traveled to Colombia?
