So you’ve been to Canada, Australia, Switzerland, Brazil, China, Thailand and many other countries… What’s next on the bucket list? Good question, if I can say so myself. What’s next on the bucket list? Please write down your top three in a comment. I’m pretty sure Colombia won’t make the list for most of you. Too bad, cause the South American country seems to have been growing a pair of tourist balls. I’ll explain.
But first: I normally don’t write a lot of articles on destinations I haven’t been to. But sometimes you get these awesome press releases and can’t resist to share. The Belgian travel shop ‘Vreemde Kontinenten’ just organized their first group trip to Colombia and because of overwhelming awesomeness they’re going again this July and probably again later this year. Why? Isn’t Colombia one of the most dangerous countries in the world in terms of violence, drugs, abductions, …? Well, yes, ten years ago. But the country has changed. And now the country has it all: Andes mountains, dense jungle, peachy beaches, colonial-style cities with amazing architecture, … And Shakira. Which means the best music ever. Just kidding. I’m not a fan.
But I could well become a fan of Colombia (more Dutch info on Vreemde Kontinenten). Or as travellers call it: South America’s rough diamond.
