A memorable vacation is one that you can never forget. Sometimes it is even hard not to stop thinking about it. Many of the places I have been include Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, and the United Arab Emirates. All these places are great but each has a non forgettable memory that I store in my head and in my heart. I have had several vacations that bring good memories, but one that I will never forget was my trip to Colombia, because I had a chance to meet my wife's family, experience a different culture, and view some of the greatest, spectacular, panoramic sights in the world.
I have a beautiful wife that has a family in Colombia that I never had the chance to meet. Last year in April, my wife and I decided to plan a trip to go to Colombia so that I may meet her family and enjoy the presence of her mother, father and son. So little by little, we started to save. In October we had the amount needed to purchase the airline tickets and go. My wife was so excited; she could not stop calling everyone on the phone and give them the good news. So we started to shop on the internet and we finally found a good price. It was set December 5th. My Uncle Joseph drove us to Miami International Airport and we checked in our bags. My wife was so excited that she was forgetting everything. I felt happy and scared at the same time. Happy in the sense that I was finally going to meet her family but at the same time scared that I may be and/or feel rejected. We flew with Aces Airlines and enjoyed every minute of the flight. After a movie and a small lunch, we finally landed in BogotÃ¡, Colombia. There we had an hour layover but, that was okay. My wife and I already missed home to our surprise there was a Mc Donald's so we decided to eat their. The food looked the same but something in the air was not. At Mc Donald's in the airport you can pay in US dollars. I received the tray with our food. The portions were a lot smaller than the ones back home in the US and the food had a different taste.
