What do you mean.. 'I'm not coming with you?'
Here we go again. Last touches to the backpacks before saying goodbye to Dougal, and the chilly winds and first hill snows of winter in Scotland. Provided that the Ecuadorian President keeps his recent promises to the long suffering indigenous population, then hopefully the rioting, curfews, and teargas of the last few weeks will remain in the past and we will arrive in Quito in 3 days time. Its been a bit of a guessing game over the last month, with all trips canceled during the declared state of emergency, and gov travel advice saying 'only if journey necessary' . Only got green light 2 days ago ! Keeping an eye on the sparse snippets of Ecuadorian news available on internet. Very exciting. Tracy and David have, possibly somewhat recklessly, offered to look after our beloved monster Spinone until we return. Its amazing what a few G&Ts can achieve !

Have a wonderful time!
Have an amazing time. Which company are you going with. We did it with Gadventures a few years ago. Are you covering more of S. America or just Ecuador? X
