Colombia in a nutshell

Having spent seven weeks in beautiful Colombia, we got quite an overview on this diverse country, about its people, the landscapes, culture and of course Colombian food. Looking back, it was luckily not as difficult to obtain a vegan diet as I initially thought. We found heaps of vegan places (for details and restaurant reviews in al the places we visited in Colombia, check here) plus a seemingly endless amount of exotic fruits that I haven’t ever heard of before. Also, we discovered the daily lunch deals (not so common on the coast, but ever present in the rest of the country), always varying and for an unbeatable prize.

So here are my personal highlights of our 7-week-Colombia-North-to-South-Tour (Nick Hornby-style…)
