Expectations Vs. Reality | How Is It Really In Colombia ?

Colombia Is Not What You See On The News

Before we made the big move to Colombia we had a lot of expectations of how our life will look like when moving abroad. We thought we understood how the culture works and how our daily life would look like.

When we eventually landed in Colombia we were more than surprised to find, that most of the things we expected to find didn’t really exist. We were confronted with reality and realized, that our expectations were far off from reality.

In this video, we will talk about several expectations we had and how reality looks like for us.

We Will Talk About

  • Safety
  • Development (Infrastructure)
  • Latin time
  • Hot water
  • Blackouts
  • Drinkable tap water
  • Gringo heaven
  • Medellin is full of Gringos

Those are just a few of all the expectations we had before moving to Colombia.

Thanks for watching!
