With our 2020 travel plans temporarily on hold, we find ourselves returning to memories of past adventures, finding joy in journeys that resonated, inspired, elevated – and that taught us something meaningful about ourselves and the wider world we share. In this new series, we revisit our best‑ever trips with you, and hope you’ll do the same for us. This week, associate editor Ari Magnusson travels back to Colombia, where he visited in the summer of 2016.
enRoute Tell us why this trip in particular keeps coming back to you now – what made it so memorable?
Ari Magnusson The more time I spend at home now, the more I find myself thinking about the first big trip that my girlfriend and I went on as a couple. We hadn’t been outside Canada in more than a year and we were both getting itchy feet. Each of us dreamt about visiting Colombia long before we met one another. For me, it was the appeal of a country that no longer felt off limits.
