ecuador


Hello reader, hope this web page finds you well.

This is a few words about my time around the middle of the planet in Ecuador. I had lots of great experiences in Ecuador, which if you read on you learn about.

Galapagos
Probably the most expensive 12 days of my trip, but totally worth it. What did I see and do there I hear you ask, this:
-Dived (or is it dove?) with hammerhead sharks
-Snorkelled with loads of cool animals like Manta Rays, Sea lions, Turtles, Sharks, Penguins (yes penguins at the equator, how mental) and many other cool sea creatures.
-Saw lots of volcanoes, Tortoises, Iguanas, Frigate birds and Boobies (stop sniggering, I am talking about the sea bird)
-Sailed (well motored) around on a boat for 8 days
-Took every opportunity to wind-up our guide, which was fun as he had zero sense of humour.

The Galapagos was a big chunk of my time in Ecuador but I also:
-Went to the home of the Panama hat, which are strangely made in Ecuador and not Panama.
-Went kite surfing for a week and stayed in a plush beach side apartment.
-Cycled around the mountains.
-The best white-water rafting I have ever done.

Here are some pics for your viewing pleasure.

I am now off back to Peru for a couple of days at the beach before rushing over to Bolivia for jungle and mountain adventures.

As my travel calendar ticks on (not that I have a calendar, and if I did it wouldn't tick) I am coming up on the 1 year anniversary of jacking in work and going on holiday. So whoop whoop for me, only 3 months left. I hope your year in your office has been as exciting.

Just 1 Question...
.....So how old is that baby seal? Is there a way of telling?

I donĀ“t know but it is probably okay to touch it, as long as we all have put our sun cream on.
