I often think about my first accounts of Colombia (normally during the regular transatlantic flights). My memories pan back to my first of many trips to this vast and wonderful land. The people I met and the places I visited. All wonderful in their own right. At that point, I have to snap out of it. I have to be truthful and really quite honest with myself. Each time my mind jumps from Michael Palin to Timothy Ross in Colombia in this one episode that brings it to me vividly. This one BBC episode of Michael Palin's Full Circle (DVD/VHS/Book/Kindle). It depicted the most memorable scenes from the whole series, and for me at least came to be the most influential imagery on travel and perhaps even the world. These truly are my first encounters of Colombia. This is where it all began.
