A Colombia Calling inspired Christmas gift list! 

A Colombia Calling inspired Christmas gift list! 

It’s that time of the year, and this year feels distinctly more festive than last, and those of us unaware of VAT free days, Black Friday, Cyber Monday and the like will find ourselves scrambling for Christmas gifts for loved ones. So, here we’re going to revisit some of the Colombia Calling podcast episodes for the last couple of years in which people have some interesting things on offer. 

Have a browse and perhaps support a few of our mutual friends.
