Why should you visit Colombia now? III


So.. 2 years ago (can’t believe it’s been 2 years) I wrote about why you should come to Colombia NOW. At that time I talked about the dirt cheap currency and the el niño amazingly hot and dry climate. This year there’s yet another reason for coming! Colombia came second on the Best In Travel […]

How big is Colombia?


That’s something that surprised me when I first came! Colombia is really big! Well, maybe not as big as China, or Brazil, but it’s as big as France, Spain and Portugal combined!

BANK: where will you be traveling to? ME: Hong Kong B: Which country would that be? Japan? M: No, Hong Kong. It’s a ‘country’ by itself. HK China […]

Best cafe in Bogotá


  I’m biased. I’ve been drinking Cafe Cultor for 2 years (on and off). No word is needed. Simply the best. It’s a small business that sources directly from coffee farmers. It’s the best coffee and café in Bogotá. The baristas are great. There used to be Sebastina and Moesis although they’ve moved on to […]
