Quito, darling, you ain’t all as bad as they as they say you are ….
Well, this was one heck of a day. Jumping out of bed at 2:30 am to be at Quito’s main airport by 4:00 am to jump on a flight to Bogota and then jump on another flight to Leticia. Even though we were all somewhat travel-weary, we were happy to board the plane for a two hour trip to Leticia, the southernmost city in Columbia. With twenty minutes to go, […]

At what point can women feel comfortable to say ‘fuck off and let me work’ without a fear of retribution?
It’s an up late kind of day, by that I mean, seven thirty. There were a couple of Toucan sightings, but to be honest, because they don’t want to play the game, I tire of their non-compliant attitudes. We are off to the big city of Quito today. Leaving late we exit though the windy hills, I fill my mind with daydreams to pass the time. Getting stuck behind large […]
Not much planned for the day, but the musings of everyday life in another country is always set to grab the mind and spin it in a new direction. Mindo, is a sleepy town. It wakes around 1:00pm. This means we get to go hang out with the birds early in the morning. The hummingbirds are out in full force. I never knew they were so tiny. I suppose they […]
When driving to Mindo through Quito, try not to get fined.
Rainforests, cable cars, lovely dogs of Mindo
Machachi – really? Did we have to?
Day three of Quilitoa Loop – last day woohoo!
Quilitoa Loop day two.
First day always exciting to start a new trek.
Off the the giant swings in the cloud this morning. A great little side trip to the top of the mountain about 14km south Of Baños. I am so happy we decided to chance driving in Ecuador and get a hire car. Just makes it so easy to get around. The Giant Swings were great, even if they did leave me feeling a little queasy. Soon though, on our next […]
We wake early, it’s a natural body clock thing me thinks. Take a quick walk around Riobamba. It’s a town of 250,000. Our guide from yesterday told us, the current government for the town are not at all pro-active and therefore there seems to be no new infrastructure, no positive plans to move forward as a town. It is like the town itself is in a slow wind down, some […]
We get to Riobamba late afternoon. First thing, see if we can organise a mountain biking trip down Chimborazo Volcano. It doesn’t look good seeings that it is late Sunday evening. As luck would have it, as it usually does. We found ProCycles was open so we hot tailed our way over to them quick smart. Low and behold, they had no tours booked for Monday which meant it would […]
Love the town, not sold on the train. Amen.
Woah mama that was a hard drive.
Lazy, hazy days with sea lions and frigates.
Mountain biking in the highlands of San Christobel – oh the pain.

A quaint, cute, almost trendy little town (almost). Beaches are perfect.
It had to happen, we came to the end …
