I didn't do much preparation for this trip in regards to finding tours and deciding what I'm going to do besides explore Bogota and Cartagena. I'm a bit anxious about the trip due to what people say about safety issues in Colombia, but I'm just going to let common sense and my instinct help me navigate my trip.
On Youtube last night I found a documentary I saw on MTV a little over 2 years ago. It documents a TV producer's decision to leave his hectic but well-paying job in New York to travel the world for a year. When I saw this it reaffirmed the wanderlust that I got when I first went to Germany. It's about an hour and a half long, but very inspiring and interesting. If you have the time to watch it feel free to post comments and let me know what you think.
