We been on a roll in Colombia…probably a Kaiser roll. The restaurant and chef scene there proved so tasty that we extended our stay and got to work on a bunch of freelance travel stories about the cuisine scene in the country’s capital for The Latin Kitchen including top tips for surviving Andres Carne de Res Colombia’s Craziest Restaurant (part of the madness is pictured below), how one Colombian chef has transplanted the best of Brooklyn in Bogotá, the secret history of a traditional drink called Tomaseca, a look at Colombia’s first celebrity chef, Harry Sasson, and his latest restaurant, where to find North American favorite foods in Bogota (from chicken and waffles to real BBQ), one chef’s best picks in Cali and our picks for what to eat and drink in Cartagena.
Then we moved on to Cali where we covered the NOW Hotel in our first piece for a cool hotel review site called A Hotel Life. Back in the US (intellectually speaking), we also did our first piece for Life Refined, all about unexpected comfort food in the US.
When we weren’t eating and sleeping our way around Colombia we found time to answer some probing questions for this interview with Chris Guillebeau and landed a spot on FlipKey’s list of Top 25 Couples Travel Blogs to Follow in 2014 (though, seriously, we hope you follow us this year too).
We also told the tale of Ecuador’s last iceman and his epic struggle with a glacier for Zozi Journal. If you’re only going to read one piece, make it this one.
