What’s Going On In April?
Gosh, all of that feel like they happened a long time ago.
We arrived in Colombia, the first country in our RTW itinerary and spent almost a week exploring colorful Cartagena, and more than a week in San Gil and surrounding Santander region (beautiful area).
We have just now arrived in Medellin, Colombia’s second biggest city (and apparently the only one with a metro system). And coming here after the Cartagena’s Old Town, Giron, and San Gil – Medellin, a gigantic city by comparison, will take some time to get used to.
And what better way to get used to big city living other than to enjoy what it has to offer, such as the availability of real Margherita Pizza.
On a side note: I love the way Medellin is pronounced here: ‘Me-de-hjin’
Jack and Jill Around the Net
Jennifer from Live Richly interviewed us about our travel, how we’ve started dating, and other interesting things I don’t think anybody has ever asked us before.
To see a snapshot of us 3 weeks before our departure, check out our interview with Sarah from Footprints of A Backpacker.
The Hecks had us contribute to their popular ‘Dear Uncle Calvin…’ series in which they asked other travelers to write a letter to their Uncle Calvin who does not seem to get why we what we do. Check out what we have to say Uncle Calvin.
Tim Raveling from Good and Lost has been more than kind to include us in his list of great travel reads among other awesome travel blogs. Check it out.
On a matter that closer to our hearts, Olivia of Powered by Tofu gave us a nod and decided to donate to our favorite animal charity North Star Animal Rescue as part of her Forkover Friday – a yearlong project in which she donates to a different charity every week.
We’ll be staying in Medellin for a bit, making day trips to Guatape and maybe Santa Fe? Then we’ll be heading south to ‘El Cafetero’ or the coffee region.
We’re moving a little slower than we’ve first planned and we’re so grateful that we have the luxury of time to be able to that.
Thanks for following us along so far.
