We don’t plan much. For each country, we create a Google Map full of pins, representing places we’re interested in visiting. A day or two in advance, or sometimes that morning when we wake up, we look at the map and decide on our route. The hot springs at Santa Rosa de Cabal in Colombia were highly recommended and we’re thrilled we detoured to experience them.
If you remember, we spent two months in Bogotá while I had surgery and recovered. Then we traveled diagonally northwest to Medellín. Since then, we’ve been slowly driving south to the Ecuador border. This video places us almost due west of Bogotá.
Watch our latest video now to see our delightful experience at Los Termales de Santa Rosa de Cabal, located beneath an incredibly beautiful waterfall:
The video shares our hot springs experience, then continues to the small town of Filandia in Colombia’s coffee region.
Colombia is huge! Did you know that if you placed a map of Colombia on top of the United States, it would stretch the north-south length of the Pacific seaboard?!
What do you think about our new style of video? We are focusing more on showing the day-to-day details, rather than highlights here and there. We think this gives a more authentic picture of what full-time international overlanding is really like. We’d love your feedback.
Because we’ve slowed down the pace, we are now a month behind on our videos. Yikes! In real-time, we crossed the border into Ecuador, parked Dauntless in Quito, and flew to the United States! This is our first visit home in 18 months.
After seeing nearly all our family members, we’ll close our trip by presenting at Overland Expo West in Flagstaff, Arizona (May 19-21). We’re grateful to Overland Expo for featuring us on their blog with a fun interview. You might learn a little something about us by reading it! You can read the interview here.
