Christmas Adventure Teaser...Alternately Titled: Come On People, What Are You Waiting For?!

This is craziness.  Dave and I have been living and traveling around South America for a year and a half.  We come across many fellow travelers and adventurers.  How many of the people we have met do you think have been from the United States?  


Do you have your guess?

Counting the people I work with, the number is in the low double digits.  I'm thinking maybe 10 to 15%.  And that, again, is including the people I work with.  The majority of travelers we come across actually have been from Europe.  See, they know something you North Americans haven't seemed to grasp yet...

South America is the place to be!  It's beautiful, unique, has beaches, mountains, jungles, and the best part, is incredibly affordable.  I ask you again, what exactly are you waiting for?

Exhibit A:  Colombia.  I know, I know, the first things you think of when you hear Colombia are drug cartels and guerrilla warfare.  But seriously, that is so 1995.  Visit Colombia today and you will be amazed at how clean, safe, and beautiful the cities and countryside are.  Trust me, I would not lead you astray.  I even have done my own research.  Dave and I, along with my Aunt Sherry, spent Christmas in Colombia and you will never believe the adventures we had.  Prepare yourself for some attacks of envy...pictures and adventures coming soon.
