Going into my second week in Colombia staying in the city of Medellin, I didn't really know what to expect. I mean, my first few days in Cali had been so amazing, but everyone kept telling me, 'oh wait til you see Medellin...' Well, they were absolutely right. Medellin is a whole different world. This city is massive. It's busy, it's colorful, it's lively, it's beautiful. I honestly felt like I was walking the streets of New York or Atlanta, but just with a little different flavor- there was a breathtaking mountain view in every direction. I cannot put my last few days in Medellin into words… the city just speaks for itself.

If you asked me to describe my opinion of the most ideal trip ever, I would probably give you a very detailed summary of my two weeks in Colombia, South America. This adventure was the perfect mixture of relaxation, exploration, and culturation(?) I mean, it was everything I could have asked for and more. We danced, we shopped, we ate (too much), we drank, we explored, and I know that I for one learned so much. I love being fully immersed into a different culture, and that is exactly what I experienced in Colombia. I practiced my Spanish, I tried foods that I had never even heard of (talk about some incredible fruit), and I experienced first-hand some of God's most beautiful creation through indescribable views of mountains and sunsets.
