Colombia, I Finally Made It
My dream of visiting Colombia finally came true in February 2018. I had planned on exploring on my own, but my PC friend, Chase, decided to come along. We left Ecuador via bus on Feb. 1st and traveled the length of Ecuador to the southern border of Colombia. We eventually traveled a total of 1500plus miles by bus to our final destination Cartegena, on the Caribbean Coast of Colombia. We remained friends through sickness (diarrhea, sunburn, achey hips, sand flea bites, swollen ankles), 8 hour at a time bus rides, miscommunication both in English and Spanish, cramped conditions and misrepresented lodgings.
Chase was a perfect travel mate as was his brother Easton, who joined us in Cartegena.

Colombia is a country of colorful buildings and clothes, flavors, families, and music. So much going on in the city squares and streets.
