Happy Friday everyone!
Friday means it's travel deal alert time! The first one I'm featuring today is Bogota, Columbia. You can fly from LAX on 7/14-7/28 for $730.50(Jet Blue) or from Ft. Lauderdale on the same dates for $428 (Copa Airlines).
Now, if it was 15 years ago, I would not recommend going to Columbia, today though I am. They have been making great strides to improve the safety of tourists over the last several years. There still remains the dangers of any large city. If you haven't traveled much, especially to larger cities, I may not make this your first big trip. Although, if you do have some traveling under your belt, I would consider traveling to Columbia at some point. The New York Times declared it one of their top destinations to visit in 2010. You can explore historic churches, the Amazon, and eat amazing food. It would be quite the adventure! Be sure to do plenty of research before you go. There are things to consider like how you'll cope with the altitude and which neighborhoods to seek out and which to avoid.
For something more low key and a quick getaway, you can fly to Seattle from Salt Lake on 4/10-4/15 for $218 round trip(Southwest). That's not bad at all. It will be a bit chilly and rainy (it is Seattle after all) but you can check out their Cherry Blossom Festival, the Seattle Aquarium and the famous Pike Place Market.
If you have any trips coming up, share them in the comments! I love talking to people about their trips.
Have a great weekend!
Hi there! I'm Skeeter. I grew up moving a lot and that makes me a bit restless for travel and exploration. I started this blog with my husband Pat when we decided to backpack New Zealand for a year. We are always looking for the next adventure and are loving life. We're just your average couple with two sassy dogs and a love for travel. We're sharing our travels and the tips we pick up along the way.
Hello! I'm Liz. Blogging is very new to me, but I'm so excited to finally write as much as I talk!
