Last month I went on a birthday trip to Colombia. It was my first time in South America. Colombia proved to be one of the most diverse and richest countries to explore on that continent (and also the cheapest, for that matter). Not everything was perfect (of course). But the four different cities I got to experience were quite magnificent and each had its own vibe and its own tradition to show. I can’t wait to tell you more about this amazing country in the following weeks.
From Bogota over Medellin and Cartagena to the small fising town of Santa Marta – the climate went from winter cold over spring-like rain to rainforest heat, which was barely walkable in. Locals, street food, and other backpackers – it was quite an adventure altogether!
