Minca, Colombian Mountain Paradise – Jesús goosebump moment

(text video)

“Hello! My name is Jesus and I’m from Nauru. My goosebump moment is one time I was on a trip with co-workers in Colombia and we went hiking in the rainforest close to Minca, in Santa Marta. It’s a forest with mountains and it’s a very humid forest. We were really tired, and we got close to the top of one mountain, and suddenly the view opened, and we saw all of Santa Marta and the ocean on the horizon. We also saw all the greenness of the forest, all the mountains, and it was really emotional for all of us”.
