Tuesday, 20 Mar 2007 | Views [4215]

Quito is a strange place. A contradiction really. On one end of the city you have the "New Town" which reminds me alot of Beaumont Street or Darby Street in Newcastle. Its cosmopolitan - cafés, restaurants, hostels and hotels nestled amongst ... Read more >

Otavalo is a town about 2 hours north of Quito, a must see in all the guidebooks. So on the weekend, my Aussie mate Linda and I packed a small bag and headed for the hills to see what it was all about. The Otavaleños (people that live in Otavalo) have ... Read more >

Imagine walking on islands that have never been inhabitied. Each step you take may be treading on the ground never walked on by another. Imagine swimming & snorkelling for hours in bright blue water with floating sea turtles, curious sea lions, ... Read more >
