A wander in Bonda

A wander in Bonda

After coming to the realisation that this week is ‘Semana Santa’, a holy celebration here in Colombia, all our plans went down the pan. It turns out the Colombians go all out for this holiday, filling every hostel, hotel and resort anywhere vaguely near the […]

Viva Colombia

Viva Colombia

We have arrived in Colombia, our final destination (not in a creepy way). When we headed off on our year long trip last time, Colombia was a much anticipated destination for us after constantly hearing other travellers rave about it. Unfortunately we never quite made […]
