Cartagena to Taganga

COLOMBIA | Tue, 24 Jan 2017 | By dmstaton | Views [899]

COLOMBIA | Tue, 16 Sep 2014 | By rubydoobyx | Views [342]

Can I just say that my favourite country (I've travelled to) would possibly be Colombia. The colours, the people, the life. A single day I spent there. One day. Not even 24 hours, actually. But that was enough. It was amazing.
