8 Frases que Sólo he Escuchado en Colombia
¿ Por qué elegí vivir en Colombia?
After James Rodriguez won the Golden Boot for his outstanding 6 goal haul in this summer’s Brazil World Cup, I really thought I wouldn’t be writing another football-related post for a while. Even with all the rumors flying around of his impending transfer to Real Madrid, I never really believed Monaco would sell their [...]
The Teatro de Cristóbal Colón, in Bogota’s La Candelaria neighborhood, is finally reopening it’s (frankly massive) doors this week after being closed since 2008 for extensive renovations. The theatre, the oldest standing opera house in South America, was built in 1885 by the Italian architect Pietro Cantini, and was opened in 1892, to celebrate the [...]
Yesterday, Colombia celebrated it’s Independence Day: on July 20th, 1810, independence was declared in Santa Fe de Bogota.

It’s been a wonderful month, and watching and [...]
The World Cup will end on Sunday with the final game between Germany and Argentina in the Maracana in Rio de Janeiro. It’s been an amazing tournament, full of entertainment and excitement, particularly for fans of Colombia. It was a great ride, with La Seleccion making all the way to the quarter finals (for [...]
Over the next few weeks we will be writing a series of posts containing sample 2 week Colombian holiday itineraries (including additional activities for those with 3 weeks or a month); these itineraries are designed to give readers an idea of how they can make the most of their time and see the best that [...]
On Sunday I was kindly invited to take part in the latest venture from Bogota-based travel company, Bogota & Beyond: the Septima Challenge. For those of you unfamiliar with the Septima (7ma from hereon in), it is the name for Bogota’s Carrera 7, which runs all the way from La Candelaria in the city’s [...]
I’d been working and living in Colombia for an amazing five months when I came to the end of my work contract and had to return to the grey and soggy UK. It was great to be back with all my home comforts. I’ve been guzzling down Cadburys chocolate and gulping down tea at [...]
