Seeing Colombians and non-Colombians loving Colombia makes me Love Colombia even more
Colombia was ranked one of the top countries to visit in 2017 by Lonely Planet.
It is so awesome to be voted as one of the best, but it is even better to witness these feelings through the eyes of visitors.
A shout out to Will Smith for dedicating time to record and share his love for Colombia by showing its beauty, its culture, its people in a positive light all while working on filming his movie Gemini Man. Here is a snippet of Will Smith’s Vlog showcasing his time in Cartagena, bailando, sonriendo, and having a good time to ♪ Music is taking over me ♪.
“If there’s one photo that sums up my trip, this is it. Muchas gracias por todo Colombia” Will Smith quotes in his Instagram post. This photo was taken in Cartagena, Colombia. Will Smith is wearing a traditional Colombian hat called ‘el sombrero vueltiao’, while holding a candle, and dancing Cumbia – Colombia’s traditional folkloric dance. Just by looking at this picture I can hear the music, feel the rythm and dance moves.
Looks like Will Smith fell in love with Colombia and El Tricolor back in 2014. Check out this video where Will Smith proudly wears Colombia’s selección 2014 soccer jersey. I mean who couldn’t fall in love with Colombia after such an amazing comeback after being absent from the World Cup for so many years.
It appears Colombia is close to Vin Diesel’s heart. His ties to Colombia date back to his childhood and he quotes “what is funny, is that my mother said I was in love with the women there, and harder to keep track of…at 3 years old. LOL”. Vin Diesel shares a photo on his Facebook page of a stunning church in Colombia called Las Lajas while in Colombia filming . Breathtaking.
Nicky Jam Finds True Love in Colombia
Many of you know that Nicky Jam has much respect for Colombia. So much so he got married in Colombia to a Colombian supermodel.
He claims Colombia and the warmth of its people helped him to be a better version of himself and says he owes much to Colombia for changing his life and for his success.
This video below is a little snippet at NickyJam’s wedding and includes Vin Diesel’s respect for Colombia #OrgulloColombiano
Anthony Bourdain LOVED Colombia
Before we lost Anthony Bourdain, he shared these flattering words to say about his time in Colombia:
“It’s ludicrous this place (Colombia) exists and everybody doesn’t want to live here”.
Little did he know Colombia is becoming a hot destination for many:
- many people want to live in Colombia as a foreigner
- Colombians want to know how to move back to Colombia
- travel bloggers, or how many expats there are in Colombia.
Colombia is simply luring us back as it should. Culture, People, Food, Traditions, Music, is all tied together, warm and welcoming to all.
