Colombia days 10-12: coffee, hiking & horses in Salento + can’t believe I made it

My last few days in Colombia were spent relaxing in a little town called Salento, in the heart of Colombia’s coffee triangle.

Colombia days 7-9: deep appreciation in Medellin + paragliding!

These past 3 days I spent in Medellin, one of Colombia’s most popular cities due to its reputation for a violent history of cocaine trafficking.

Lake Tahoe weekend without the lake

Hey hey, how are you all? Hope everything is going fab-u-lous-ly! Following last week’s rarer “serious” posts, I’m happy to say that things have been looking up.
