One of the travel bloggers in the program is David Lee (@rtwdave) of the Colombia lifestyle & travel blog, Medellin Living. Lee is exited about being involved in further improving Colombia’s image as a tourist destination.
“I’ve been writing about and promoting the city of Medellin, as well as travel to Colombia, for the last 3 years, so I welcomed the opportunity to work more closely with the country’s tourism department,” Lee noted. “Based on regular feedback from readers, I know individual bloggers can make a difference when it comes to inspiring people to visit a new country. It’s my hope that a unified community of expat bloggers will help to amplify our message that Colombia has a lot to offer any traveler.”
When asked what he hopes to achieve from participating in the program, Lee explained that, “in addition to added exposure for my blog, Medellin Living, I’m excited about the potential to form a more closely-knit expat blogger community.” He adds that, “The chance to go on press trips and see new parts of the country is also a major plus for participants.”
