There is no more disastrous mania, no more dangerous whim, than the speculation over roads not taken.
— from The Sounds of Things Falling by Colombian author Juan Gabriel Vasquez

Colombia, you stole my heart. From your bustling and innovated streets of Medellin to your colorful lakeside town of Guatape to the beautiful surroundings and laid-back vibes of Jardin, I feel deeply in love with you. I landed with no real expectations and I left with a deep sense of gratitude for being able to catch a glimpse of your beautiful country and beautiful people. I will be back for sure.
