Paul Celebrates 2 Years Living in Colombia (Photos)

Paul Fowler at Punta Gallinas

Today marks my 2nd year living here in Bogotá. It’s been a pretty momentous couple of years ever since I landed, and it’s hard to commemorate in words. Instead, to mark to occassion, I leave you with a Colombia photo gallery from some of my travels around the country. Enjoy.

Aaaaand that’ll about wrap it up…

I don’t want to clog up your computer memory with my Colombia memories, so I won’t post the many photos I have from the rest of the country.

2 years is a long time to spend away from home, but as anyone living here in Colombia will know, living here you never feel too far from family.

Here’s to more years here, and a whole load of Colombian goodness.

    Congratulations on living in Colombia for two years! It looks like you have had an amazing time so far and good luck your future years in Colombia. I lived in Medellin for almost two years and wish I could have seen half of what you have seen. I will definitely have to go back many times to visit all of the wonderful places Colombia has to offer.
