Bogotá | Colombia

Like I mentioned in my Anolaima post, Colombia reminded me so much of the Philippines, my home country. It has the same vibe, the same amount of grit, and the same warmth from its people. In today's post, I will be showing you photos I took around Bogotá. I wish I had taken the photos a bit better, but apparently, this was the best I could do. But I think the main reason why these photos aren't the best is because we had to be extremely cautious about our devices. Colombia, like the Philippines, has its dangers, so most of the time, I just had my phone in my bag, which was kind of a bummer.

Monserrate | Bogotá, Colombia

I seriously didn't know how to write about my Colombia trip so I'm letting you guys know now that the Colombia posts won't be in chronological order ⏤ I wrote the blog posts by place (city). Hopefully you won't get too confused as these posts roll out. Now that you've read my short disclaimer, let's proceed...

On our last full day in Bogotá, Colombia, the family decided to visit the famous Monserrate. If you've watched Narcos, you've probably seen this mountain from their opening billboard.
Monserrate is a mountain that can be found in the capital of Colombia, Bogotá. This place is definitely a must-see when in Bogotá for its amazing gardens, breathtaking views and the beautiful church. This place also holds so much history, and hey, how often do you find a church on top of a mountain? It was very overcast and foggy that day, but it still didn't stop us from getting nice pictures.

San Andrés, Colombia | Part 1

When Jorge told me we will be visiting and staying in San Andrés for 5 days, I got so freaking excited! I don't remember the last time I visited a tropical island and the whole time I was living in Canada, all I wished for was a trip to the beach with legit hot weather! That wish was granted a few months ago when we visited Colombia in February. 

I'm going to be splitting my San Andrés posts into two parts because I have so many photos to share with you guys and I don't want to upload everything into one page to avoid any lagging that may occur.

From Where I Stood | COLOMBIA

If you guys didn't know already, the reason behind my sudden absence here on the blog was because Jorge and I and his family went to Colombia for 12 days! It was a nice vacation and I really enjoyed my time there! Full blog posts and a couple of vlogs will be coming your way soon, but for now, here's a little sneak peek of what happened during our Colombia trip!

Inspired by my past #fromwhereistood post.
