While on my solo trip in Singapore, I decided to open up the Hangouts portion of Couchsurfing, to try and make some friends.
Using the app can be a hit or miss, sometimes you will find a decent amount of people surfing, other times none. I was lucky, and found a few people to hangout with.
That is were I met Natalie and Simone. Natalie was a local but a traveler by heart. Simone, well he had a very interesting story.
He has sold his worldly belongings and had started a journey around the world. A journey around the world, is incredible, but he took it a step further, around the world only by land and sea. No flying, at all.
His guesthouse is the only one in existence in La Comuna 13. Here you can find a unique and real experience with locals. His home inside a historical part of Medellin. Explore alone or take a local guide and explore where no other tourists have been, taking in a real breathe of Columbian air and community.
His hostel’s origin based on a bet, Simone’s goal is to change the script, and show people that Medellín, Columbia is not a place of fear, but one of rebirth. People don’t live in
fear but with the hope of something more, and with an open challenge to anyone who comes for a soccer match against the local medellin-boys.
He and his girlfriend await your visit. Click Here To Book
