About a year ago I spent three gorgeous weeks in Colombia with the always fun Abbie of Speck on the Globe.

We started in and around Bogota, Colombia’s capital.

We took a day trip to Zipaquira.

We then flew up to Cartagena, Colombia’s most popular coastal town.

We spent a sun-filled day on Baru Island, an adventurous boat ride from Cartagena.

And rented a car to explore more of the area.

I climbed the 740 steps to the top of La Pierda and was rewarded with a view.


A long and winding bust trip brought us to the gorgeous coffee land of Salento where I learned about the production of my favorite morning beverage and was surrounded by incredible landscapes.
