Intrepid Journeys - Colombia (Pam Corkery)

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2008

Journalist Pam Corkery takes the expression 'you only live once' to heart during her intrepid journey to Colombia. Bruised after being shot in Bogatá as part of a bulletproof jacket test, Corkery readies herself for a journey into rural Colombia, where the kidnapping rates are high and the journalist-napping rates even higher. Despite being agoraphobic, she wards off piranha in the Amazon and deadly chicken-eating spiders in Zona Cafetera, hikes an almost vertical mountain and sheds a tear at a bullfighting ring. Corkery sums up her visit with a smile, saying "if you want to really think about life again, come here."

I don't think I'll ever be the same after this trip — which will be a relief to many.
