Bogota is a high altitude city with a 500+ year history involving Spain and Europe. Of interest is the fact that the Colombian government is the most friendly to the USA of all South American countries. We saw evidence of progress in many facets of the country. The flag represent their history and culture: yellow for the gold mined, blue for the two oceans (Pacific and Atlantic) that flank the country, and red, for the blood of the Martyrs fighting for Independence. We were so blessed to be a part of the Dubberly\'s life and church while in Bogota. May God continue to bless their ministry as they serve Him!

Visiting Costa Rica had been on my bucket list for a couple of years before I was finally able to finalize details of the trip with Adventure Life(which was to be my third trip with them). My travel partner, Sarah, had not been able to arrange a time to go until now. I decided to do the \'\'Beaches and Rainforest\'\' tour to give us some variety.

Awe -- \"an overwhelming feeling of reverence, admiration, fear, etc., produced by that which is grand, sublime, extremely powerful, or the like.\" Yep, that sums up my ~3 weeks in and around Antarctica. Always at the top of my must-do list, I decided to stop talking about it and start living it! The following journal recounts my incredible journey. I hope it inspires you to take that leap!

Every segment of our trip was top-notch. The weather was great, along with the food, the tours, the lodging, the transportation and the people. We made a stop at Mantay in Cusco to deliver peace pals and medical supplies. We were very impressed to learn that Adventure Life has a relationship with the shelter. Thanks to Milagros in Lima, we learned about the Mantay Shelter in Cusco. My friends and I knitted 26 peace pals to distribute to the mama and baby residents there. Mantay Shelter provides safety and education for abused teenage mothers and their children.After a break in and robbery of the computers and televisions, Adventure Life helped to heighten the brick wall and install electric protection around the shelter. It also helped to solve several plumbing problems in the bathroom. We all greatly appreciated having our own \'\'private\'\' tours. With just 4 of us, we could all fit into a van and could interact better with our guides. This kind of intimacy is not possible with a large group on a bus. We were able to stop for pictures and ask questions whenever we wanted to. Also we were able to drive to locations that a big tour bus could not reach, for instance the salt mines.Thanks to Adventure Life for giving us the opportunity to share with people in Peru.

In addition to the stunning scenery, we all thoroughly enjoyed the company of our guide, cook and wrangler, who each did a wonderful job of making our trip so special with their knowledge, excellent local cuisine, and lots of good-humored laughter as we stumbled with our Spanish. This trek was on a grand scale that I had never experienced before - a trip of a life-time that I would highly recommend!
