Hi. Hola. Γειά σου. Merhaba. Welcome to my travel website! I’ve been running it since July 2013. I live in Colombia. Together with my girlfriend, Marisol, I own a boutique travel company called Paisadventure.

With Nomadic Niko, my goal is to inspire you to explore a little more. I’m the type of traveler that’s eager to visit as many places as I can, but I don’t like to rush through them. I like to take my time and explore as much as possible, especially if I find something interesting that’s not in the guidebooks.

I’m not here to win any creative writing awards. I’m just here to provide my opinions, tips, personally made maps, photos, links, and reviews for the places I’ve visited around the world. Some of the places I write about are popular destinations while others are way off the beaten path. I also throw in a few cultural stories and unique personal experiences.

Please bear with me as I transition over to WordPress from Blogger. There will be a lot of formatting issues on my older posts until I get everything straightened out. I am currently 84% done.

I’m currently splitting up some posts that are too long. If you decide to follow my blog, I suggest limiting updates to once a week. I don’t want to inundate you with tons of notifications as I split up the older posts.

To get started, please select a country from the menu above.

Thanks for visiting – and enjoy!

The Market

Dinner at The Market, located inside the Marriott Hotel in Cali, is a good experience. They have a huge selection of international cuisine in a casual dining room with a nice ambience. Much of it is “build your own”, including burgers, pasta, pizza, sandwiches, and wraps. We’ve eaten there twice and were very happy with our dinner but the service seemed to slow near the end the meal. Continue reading
