Taking My Momma to Medellin, Colombia!
Wow, since I last blogged I’ve done a lot. I went from Siargao, Philippines to Cebu and from there to Angeles City for a week. After that my buddy Chris and I went to Singapore for three fantastic days of business and from there I flew all the way back to Los Angeles.
In LAX, I met my mother where I picked her up and we flew together on Spirit Airlines to Fort Lauderdale, Florida and then on to Medellin, Colombia in big seats 1A and 1B on both flights!
Most guys don’t take there Mother to Colombia with them, but my Mom is cool. There have been times in the past where we’ve been out of touch for extended periods of time but I hope those times never come again. I’ve never felt as close to my Mother as I do now and I cherish every moment with her.
When we landed in Medellin we were both a bit exhausted. Halfway through the trip I actually slept on the floor of the Fort Lauderdale airport and if you haven’t already seen, that’s why I now pay for airport lounge access.
Anyways, Medellin is a straight up slice of totally unexpected heaven. I can never get enough of this metropolitan city. I challenge you to name a city with more beautiful women everywhere you turn, coupled with inexpensive highrise lodging, good food and prices that make Mexico look expensive! Medellin has it going on!
We stayed for 5 nights at the Parque Lleras Hostel in the Poblado, neighborhood. The place offers nice accommodations and a perfect location with direct frontage to Parque Lleras which is famous for it’s high-end coffee shops, bars and fine dining restaurants. This is where Medellin’s upper class go to eat, drink, see and be seen.
