Hi It's been fun enjoying your trip vicariously and looking at all your amazing pictures from my kitchen, shame you can't continue to supply some escapism for me! Will be good to see you soon though, have a good trip home xx

A city we really want to explore and your lack of planning gave you all the time you needed! Really enjoyed the blog.

World cup fever
It must be wonderful to be experiencing this event from South America and hearing the local stories and thoughts.

Should be a good game anyway. Just settling down for Holland v Mexico with Jim. Hope the rest of your holiday goes well.

Thanks Nige. Gotta feel for those Mexicans.

I think Colombia can win the Cup. James Rodriguez is a star.

I hope you're right Nige. Certainly yesterday was their best game yet but next up Brazil...

A pleasing symmetry is always a great reason to add another town to the itinerary. We are really enjoying your trip. Since we are traveling right now we are living through you. Continue on.

HI. We are leaving for Quito in a couple of weeks and BaƱos is one of the places we would like to go. Could you possibly tell me the name of the hostel that you stayed at, as well as the bike rental place. Any other tips - of things not to miss. We are not planning to go to the Galapagos , but will hopefully get to the coast for Isla de la Plata. Thanks!

Hi Barbara, We stayed in the Hostel Princesa Maria. From memory it was the top pick on Tripadvisor. The guy who runs it doesn't speak much English but is very friendly and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it if you're looking for a cheap, pretty basic hostel. It's a 5 min walk from the square with the tourist information office in it. The bike place (also does very good, cheap rafting) was called Geotrips or Geotrekking. From the hostel walk down to the square, cross it diagonally, the agency is another 30 yards on the right. Hope you enjoy Banos - we thought it was a really good base in which to hang out for a few days.

Survival is good. We've done a lot of whitewater rafting in West Virginia, U.S.A. The rush is amazing.
