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.
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.
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.
