In September of 2005, I made my first return to South America since The Quest. Needless to say, Colombia did not dissappoint. The trip began with a few days in Bogota, where I attended Tony and Erika's wedding. After that, I did a whirlwind week of partying and adventure which began in Manizales, where I climbed the Volcano San Luis up to 15,000 feet. From there it was on to Medellin where I got my first chance to go paragliding, and finally I spent a few days in Cartagena on the Carribean coast. Below you'll find pictures and journals
