Greetings from Ecuador!  We enjoyed our planned one month in Colombia so much that we spent 89 days there, leaving Friday the 21st of November, the day before our visa expired.  Much has happened over these past months.  Words cannot express the transformation that has occurred in our lives.  We could not have imagined how our travels would cause our love for each other, our family, our friends, humanity and this beautiful planet to grow exponentially from our powerful wedding weekend in July of 2014.  We share some of our top experiences in Colombia below.  If you have any questions, feel free to ask us to expound on a topic.  Also, see our map if you would like to follow where we’ve been.
