Colombia

Sharing images from the rest of our time and travels in Colombia today! Earlier I posted a peek into one of our favorite parts during this anniversary trip – visiting Monserrate and looking down upon Bogotá, so today an overall tour of this beautiful, colorful, crazy, humongous, mash-up of a city in the mountains! Bogotá to me, was a city of contradictions, in a good way, making it exciting to explore . . .

a huge city filled with chaos and traffic, yet also full of parks, green-space, plants & vegetation

a mix of colorful Colonial buildings, skyscrapers, modern apartments, and tons mid-century modern decor and architecture

crowded, gritty, urban streets covered in street art and then behind the doors off the street some of the most stylish, pristine, tasty and fresh eateries one could imagine

Well, I’ll let the photographs speak for themselves and I hope you enjoy a little tour. Viva Colombia!

we had a fabulous experience at Tábula one of the few restaurants we selected ahead of time as we had seen it on Anthony Bourdain :) Delicious fresh slow cooked food plus the chef even chatted with us and personally ordered up our lunch!

We then headed out of the city for a couple days to explore Villa de Leyva, a seriously beautiful Colonial village in the Andes mountains. We stayed at a fun B&B with a view, hiked down to town, and along the way captured some cute scenes around the village and of the famous Plaza Mayor.
