Heading out-of-town on a whim for the long weekend. We are going to hit up Bogotá with Passport Delicious. It should be an entertaining adventure. Have you ever been? Have any suggestions? This is what we have so far:
Check out some goodies collected by Passport Delicious over here, and some inspirational pieces on Pinterest here.
These are some stand-out resources to check into:
