Amsterdam – city of tiny cars that drive in the bike lane and park on the sidewalk.

We’re back in Amsterdam, one of our favorite cities, on our way to South America! With we said goodbye to Asia with heavy hearts and are on our way to Bogota, Colombia. We’re excited, as none of us have ever been to S. America. Our Spanish is weak to nonexistent (ahem, that would be me), so this is going to be a great opportunity to learn a language, or at least some of it!


As usual, we don’t have a full agenda planned out. Our idea is to land in Bogota, stay for a week or so and figure out our next steps. We’ll likely explore Colombia a bit, then move on to other countries. As we do our research and formulate a plan we’ll be looking for interesting subjects and themes to guide our adventures and learning. There is no shortage of things to explore in S. America. We’ll let you know what we find….

Speaking of that, we are waaaaaaaaaaaaay behind on blog posts. We’ve been slowly working on “flashback posts” to try and catch up. Here are the places we’ve been which we have yet to blog about:

  • Berastagi, Sumatra, Indonesia
  • Lake Toba, Sumatra, Indonesia
  • Medan, Sumatra, Indonesia
  • Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
  • Colombo, Sri Lanka
  • Bodufolhudhoo, Maldives
  • Hikkaduwa, Sri Lanka
  • Galle, Sri Lanka
  • Mirissa, Sri Lanka
  • Kandy, Sri Lanka
  • Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka
  • Ella, Sri Lanka
  • Udawalawa, Sri Lanka

As you can see, we are waaaaaaaaaay behind! We’ll catch-up with “flashbacks” as we can, and try to do a better job of staying up to date as we hit S. America. I hope the internet connections there are better than what we’ve had lately.

That’s all for now. I have to go run some errands to get ready for tomorrow’s flight to Bogota. Hasta luego!
