Chris Bell is a British travel writer and blogger who can usually be found adventuring off-the-beaten-track through Colombia as the editor of the Colombia Travel Blog. He has lived in Colombia for four years and explored 30 of the country’s 32 departments. He speaks fluent Spanish and has been traveling in South America since a six-month backpacking trip at age 19. That trip through Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina and Brazil cemented his love for the continent. He then moved to Venezuela for a year and finally ended up in Colombia, a country he is now proud to call home.
