There are [105] stories from my trip: South America


Cotapaxi National Park

ECUADOR | Friday, 26 Oct 2012 | Views [319]

The rain that had started last night was still drizzling away the next morning so we didn’t bother hanging around.  Tracking down a Quito bound bus was easy enough but explaining where we wanted to get off was a little challenging.  We ... Read more >

Looping the Loop in Quilotoa

ECUADOR | Tuesday, 23 Oct 2012 | Views [838]

We really didn’t fancy another night in Guayaquil so we walked from the airport to the bus terminal and hopped straight on a bus bound for Quevedo.  This town has gone from a brief mention in our Lonely Planet to not even being marked on the ... Read more >


An Eight Day Cruise around the Galapagos Islands

ECUADOR | Friday, 19 Oct 2012 | Views [560]

As you know we didn’t have the best of experiences in Guayaquil’s Funky Monkey so getting up early and heading to the airport wasn’t a chore!  A trip to these unique islands isn’t as straight forward as hopping on a boat ... Read more >

Getting off the Gringo Trail in Guaranda and Guayaquil

ECUADOR | Thursday, 11 Oct 2012 | Views [991]

Plan B also involved getting to Guayaquil via the non-gringo route so we’ve detoured to Guaranda.  Not that the town has anything on offer but it sounded nice enough and the bus journey was alleged to be one of the best in the country. ... Read more >

Banos and Biking to the Amazon

ECUADOR | Tuesday, 9 Oct 2012 | Views [470]

We checked out of our guesthouse with glee and skipped to the bus station for our 8am bus to Riobamba.  As we gravitate towards the equator we’ve left behind the high altitude dramatic peaks and defined seasons.  The land is much greener ... Read more >

ECUADOR | Saturday, 6 Oct 2012 | Views [477]

We used the Vajero bus company to get us to Cuenca ($7.50 hourly) and found their vehicles to be clean and comfy.  In fact travelling by bus has proved to be very easy with an extensive network to all the main towns and regular services to smaller ... Read more >

Football and Forests in Loja

ECUADOR | Thursday, 4 Oct 2012 | Views [501]

We dragged ourselves away from Le Rendez-Vous and jumped on one of the very regular buses bound for Loja.  In fact they leave every 15mins and cost $1.30 a ticket for the 1hr 20mins ride.  Once there we jumped in a taxi to take us to Hotel ... Read more >
