As most of you know I, along with my Dad, am about to embark on my next holiday adventure. This time my travels are taking me back to South America to visit Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. I shall be away for 22 days flying into Quito, capital city of Ecuador (and the second highest city in the world) via Madrid. The highlights of the trip will include Quito, Otavalo and Saquisili, the volanic peaks of Cotopaxi, Chimborazo and Tungurahua, the Amazon Jungle, Devils Nose railway and of course 7 nights sailing and visiting some of the Galapagos Islands. We will be travelling via plane, coach, motorised canoe, train and motor cruiser staying in hotels, jungle camp, hosteria and boat!
Hopefully, I will be able to update my blog as we go along if internet access is available and will do my best to add some photo's where possible. The weather at the moment in Quito is wet and cold, Guayaquil is thunderstorms and Otavalo rain and it is supposed to be the dry season! Still we are both excited and despite a few minor setbacks (stomach bug for me; Dad falling over and thinking he had broken his back) we are raring to go! Bring on new adventures, friends, cultures, wildlife and experiences ...........
