Carly is a 30 year old solo-travel veteran who is new to the blogging scene. She has spent the majority of the last ten years living, working and traveling outside of her home country, the USA. She has degrees in Spanish and English languages from Montana State University, and has taken her language skills around the world, living and working in Spain for four years and recently returning from a tour through Latin America, where she fell in love with Colombia and was inspired to write this article. She has traveled to 38 countries in Europe, Asia, North and South America, Australia and New Zealand, but Colombia holds a special place in her heart and at the top of her list of all-time favorites.
