WHEN PLANNING THAT FIRST BIG GETAWAY, HOW ABOUT OUT IN COLOMBIA?
With the global pandemic, travel is a little different right now, if it's happening at all. On 1 September, Colombia lifted its nationwide quarantine and allowed international flights to resume. Some will think Colombia is not as advanced as other nations, but you don’t have to be advanced to be safe. Plus, the destination is diverse; there is something for everybody, from the Caribbean coast with its crystal waters to the Andean Mountains. There’s also great nightlife, with it rumored that Bogota's Theatron, which can hold 5,000+ patrons, is the largest LGBTQ+ club in the world. Although it will be some time until the dance floors will be packed again, Colombia is a welcoming destination overall and a great place for LGBTQ+ equality.

Such were the philosophical, existential and cultural questions I asked myself on a recent Hudson Valley 48-hour getaway.
