What To See And Do In Tromso, Finland

Tromso is among those very amazing places that every tourist should experience. Perhaps this is the best place in the world to view the Aurora Borealis, also known as the Northern lights.

With the warm Noth Atlantic current, an extension of the Gulf Stream, Tromso stays remarkably temperate in winter for a place which is so close to the North Pole.

 

You’re going to experience an endless winter night that time of year, the same as you would experience an endless summer day if you came in the other half of the year...

My Six Months in Bogota, Colombia

I moved to Colombia back in 2007 to assist a competitor in opening a call center in Bogota. I am in the telephone answering service business. I had been living between my home in Miami and my second home in San Jose, Costa Rica.  My first reaction to the invitation was the same as most people would have.  First you think of drugs, then you think of explosions.
