Colombia is fantastic. Period. One of the best places we've ever had the pleasure of visiting. It made us laugh the first time we saw it, but the government's tourism slogan, "Colombia: The Only Risk is Wanting to Stay," is totally true.

Driving into Dallas from the airport reminded me of driving home from the airport in Calgary. The landscape, plethora of low rise strip malls and structure of the roads were almost identical. Then as we got closer to the city, Dallas started to feel more like Mississauga…until we noticed the absolutely massive big box stores, malls and Tex Mex restaurants all over the place.
What to say about Texas?
We were visiting British Colombia in wintertime, so we didn't have the best weather, but as far as Canadian winters go, I have to say that it was not bad. Some rain, a little snow, but mostly temperate and enjoyable. However, when the sun was shining and the skies were blue, wow!
Mosquitos absolutely love me. Or rather my blood. It doesn't seem to matter how many other tasty veins are around, they all zone into me and I end up with 10 bites, while everyone around me gets off scot-free! The Bear likes to call me his "insect repellent," because they don't bother with him and his furry legs when I'm around.
For our particular itinerary, Brazil and India are the only 2 countries where we're required to apply for a tourist visa in advance.
With just twenty days left until our Feb. 20th departure date, it was really time to book our plane tickets. It's not like we were suddenly going to change our minds about the trip, so nothing was stopping us from actually clicking "buy" on the Star Alliance Book and Fly website and moving forward.
Nothing but an unexplained feeling of uneasiness...at least in my mind.
