When I first arrived in Colombia, I didn't realize how much I had wanted to find a place that could truly be considered Paradise. With Medellin as the chief city, the department of Antioquia is perhaps the closest thing one could find. Beautiful skies, rolling green hills, and warm people make this entire region a delight to travel.

It is difficult knowing how people have suffered in this paradise though. This area was where a lot of conflict occurred through the years of fighting. The people, while resilient, still bear the weight of what their parents' generation and their own went through. When visiting here, know that there is a history, but it does little to pale the wonder of being able to be in a place like this
