I have loved telling stories since I was a child, because sharing my fascination with stories and adventure is a pillar of my life. Storytelling led me to study journalism. During my studies I got to know the tourism industry and since 2017 I have been able to live the beautiful experience of being a tour guide. Sharing my little piece of the world with those who are interested in my beautiful country made me want to learn more about history, culture, politics and curiosities. Together with my friend María Paula, a sociologist, we have made this beautiful project that shows us the importance of memory, reconciliation and peace.

El tour fue mucho mejor de lo que esperábamos. Nos ayudo a comprender la historia de Colombia, mas allá de lo que cuentan las series de Pablo Escobar. Si bien es cierto, que algunas partes del tour son duras, Paula nos hizo adentrarnos en el dolor de una historia aun demasiado reciente con mucho respeto. Lo recomendamos 100% y ojala puedan seguir compartiendo y enseñando la historia colombiana al mundo y que cambie la percepción de este país hacia al exterior y que los propios colombianos aprendan para no cometer los mismo errores.
