Life Abroad, Travel

“Buy the ticket, take the ride…and if it occasionally gets a little heavier than what you had in mind, well…maybe chalk it off to forced conscious expansion: Tune in, freak out, get beaten.” – Hunter S. Thompson

What an amazing group of people.  These are the type of people who are helping to change the world and inspire other travelers to take a wild chance and chase their dreams!  I have also included a list of their blogs/websites in order of appearance in the slide show.  Check them out, patronize their blogs, and take advantages of the services they offer.  Together we are helping to open Colombia up to the world by creating an expert community who are here to answer all your questions and reveal the spirit of this beautiful land we have chosen to call home.
