It’s finally Friday, and to celebrate we’re bringing you another new gallery of pictures of Colombia. So here’s Day 7 and Off 2 Colombia’s fantastic photos of Colombia.

Off 2 Colombia was founded by Josian Chevallier and Mickael Teo, two French guys who left their successful careers in London to take a chance on Colombia. More than a year later, their company, Off 2 Colombia, is rapidly gaining popularity.

According to them: “A lot of our friends had taken trips to South America with plans to stay in Colombia for a week or two before moving on but ended up staying for 2 months – the maximum possible on a tourism visa.

The other reason was the lack of information when we were planning our trip to Colombia : the travel books had very basic information and were out dated (we had a to buy a travel book with reviews from 2007 and we were getting into 2011). The internet had decent information but it was not structured and proved of very little help to decide where to go. It became obvious there was a need for an independent, interactive and well informed website to help people designing their trip to Colombia, and Off2colombia was born!”
