Need input - first international travel to Colombia in Jan 2012

Jump to last reply

Long story short - bought passport & tickets for Jan 2012 to Pasto through Bogota with intention of traveling with boyfriend who was born and raised in Cali. He dumped me. Can't refund tickets. Really want to go still.

I've never traveled out of US. I speak a little Spanish. Would be traveling alone. Not horribly into the club scene or hardcore sports stuff. I am very much a keep-to-myself kind of gal. I'm sure I could fill 3 weeks with activities. The question is should I?

As I had planned to stay with his family (who would have paid for most things) -- how much should I budget for 3 weeks not including flight to/from US??

What are best sources for coming up with itinerary, reliable resources?

Honestly, any input would be greatly appreciated!

Amy
