A Family Trip to Remember
A Family Trip to Remember
loved their trip to Colombia

We chose Colombia because our two adopted children are from there. They had not been back since we first adopted them, and we wanted to let them see this amazing place they are from. We traveled to Bogota, Monteria, and back to Bogota. We met biological family and visited our Compassion kids during our time in Monteria.

Best parts:
I loved it all! The agent was very helpful the entire process from the submission of our request for the trip to the end of the trip. We had to make several changes during the planning phases and even after we booked the trip, and she took care of us the entire time and kept us in the loop on everything. I was so appreciative! The hotel in Bogota was perfect for us. It was in a location where we could walk to everything. For Monteria, we were placed in the hotel we requested. Our travel agent, Elisabeth, even worked together with a family member of ours in Monteria to have the family member surprise us at the airport! What a fun treat for us! My kids loved it! The best part though was that our travel agent was also our translator. She joined us on a beautiful expedition to find our girls' biological family in the middle of nowhere! She made it possible for us to communicate with aunts, uncles, cousins, and their grandpa for the first time. The most meaningful thing was when she translated for us when we met their birth mother. We needed to communicate clearly during that time, and Elisabeth made that possible. Elisabeth became more than a friend during our time with her; she will always be considered a part of our family. You can't share something so personal like that and not feel close!
Worst parts:
The only snag we hit was when we first got to Bogota. The transfer didn't have the necessary paperwork, and we ended up having to take taxis to the hotel. The agency was extremely apologetic and made sure we were never alone and taken care of the entire time. They handled it so professionally!
