  • Quito, finallyAfter the delays we can safely say that Quito was worth the wait. The scenery flying in was amazing with massive mountains soaring above the clouds and sheer cliffs dropping away just as quickly as they had risen. The drive Posted by mljjs in Ando's Andes & Incas | Apr 6, 2013
  • Cuenca, EcuadorOne thing that we have come to realize on our “endless summer” of traveling is that we both prefer mountain air to heat and humidity. We met some folks who had moved from California to Cuenca and they suggested we Posted by Robin-and-Kevin in Adventures of Kevin and Robin | Apr 5, 2013
  • Santa Cruz, GalapagosSanta Cruz is the most inhabited island of the Galapagos, so our initial thought was that it would be the least desirable. However, it turns out that there is a ton of fun activities to do, so much that we Posted by Robin-and-Kevin in Adventures of Kevin and Robin | Apr 5, 2013
  • Isabela, GalapagosIsabela is the largest of the Galapagos Islands, yet it is hardly inhabited. The main city is Puerto Villamil where we stayed with a family in their pension. We were there when the island’s founding celebration was happening Posted by Robin-and-Kevin in Adventures of Kevin and Robin | Apr 5, 2013
  • Five Flipping FlightsOur first day of the trip and its fair to say it was a big one. Drama started the night before we left with a recorded message left on our home phone stating that our flight from Sydney to Santiago Posted by mljjs in Ando's Andes & Incas | Apr 5, 2013
  • EcuadorTime has been flying, hard! It’s time for my last 2,5 weeks of traveling already and for my last country, I have a local guide. My cousin Inti has lived in Ecuador for about 7 years and knows the places Posted by tombroekaert in Tom in South-America | Apr 3, 2013
  • Galapagos FollowupAs all of you noted, there were few entries about the Galapagos - there was a simple answer - the internet was spotty at best, and it was a struggle on board to get even simple email! I apologize Posted by rpickett in Rusty Pickett, ECC | Apr 3, 2013
  • Through the forest and into the mountains After the chaos of a big city like Quito, arriving in the tiny town of Mindo felt like falling into the Garden Eden. The air is crisp, butterflies accompany you down the street, hummingbirds lull you to sleep and the Posted by elyshahickey in Wanderlysh | Apr 1, 2013
  • Adaptation completedSo it happened! Finally! =) No more complaints about Ecuadorian slowness and imprecision. Instead of that pure joy and..happiness! I would not believe, that this will happen once. Example: Sitting in the same internet cafe as always, I am so happy Posted by Ef in Tranquilo, we are in Ecuador | Mar 31, 2013
  • San Cristobal, GalapagosArmed with only a machete and half of a fence post hole digger we combed the highlands of San Cristobal in search of invasive blackberries (‘mora’ in Spanish). The battle between native plants and blackberries is easily being won Posted by Robin-and-Kevin in Adventures of Kevin and Robin | Mar 31, 2013
  • All Kinds TravelWe've left the Galapagos. We're back in the Guayaquil airport, mourning, laughing at ourselves for our genuine and somewhat silly sadness. Taking turns, we creep into the airport bookstore and flip though photo books of the islands, reliving each creature Posted by chschen in Teenie Travels | Feb 24, 2013
  • Sea LionsCan't think for all the pain in my ear. It is both dull and loud, drowning out all other sensation and thought. I would not be surprised if someone told me there was a rip in my eardrum, but Chris Posted by chschen in Teenie Travels | Feb 20, 2013
  • Life AfterBack on land, as of yesterday. The ground has finally ceased its swaying, which means the last vestige of the cruise has left us. We are reluctant to relinquish it as we are still enchanted--by the lava-coated, unforgiving landscape, the Posted by chschen in Teenie Travels | Feb 19, 2013
  • Almost OverWell, its just about over. The boat is anchored in Puerto Ayora Harbor, and half her crew is gone. Behind closed cabin doors passengers pack or read or sleep. Anther group of people you meet and leave, who fade in Posted by chschen in Teenie Travels | Feb 17, 2013
  • Not much left to takeWe have continued to make our way down the Ecuadorian coast. Manta is a port city and self-proclaimed tuna capitol. Not a terribly interesting city, but we found a couple nice hangouts. Decent beach, especially for a Posted by ceastburn in Sunny and Cricket's Terruffic Adventure | Mar 27, 2013
  • Kicking back in QuitoAs much as we love life on the road, it’s nice to stay in one place for a while. Since we left Guatemala in August, we’ve moved at a cracker of a pace. So, it was decided we’d put the Posted by elyshahickey in Wanderlysh | Mar 26, 2013
  • NSCC in Ecuador We have spent two wonderful days with staff at Universidad de Especialidades Espiritu Santo (UEES) and Universidad Ecotec in Guayaquil Posted by NSCC Intl in NSCC International | Mar 18, 2013
  • Hola América del Sur! Zoran Kondali and I from NSCC International are in South America as part of a reciprocal visit to several institutions who vis Posted by NSCC Intl in NSCC International | Mar 18, 2013
  • Quito, EcuadorWe have now been the two highest capitals in the world: Quito, Ecuador (9,350 feet) and La Paz, Bolivia (11,942). We were very excited to step off the plane in Quito and for the first time in a LONG time, Posted by Robin-and-Kevin in Adventures of Kevin and Robin | Mar 24, 2013
  • Ecuador's Coast, improving from disgustingWe have been in Ecuador for a week now, taking the less-common coastal route. We're saving the mountains for the trip back. There is a lot of money being spent on roads, which are generally good except for Posted by ceastburn in Sunny and Cricket's Terruffic Adventure | Mar 22, 2013
  • Earnest MatingIn a protected lagoon of brackish water we heard the splash of sea turtles trying to mount each other. It looked as ungraceful and earnest as human mating. We all stared and took pictures as they climbed and lunged and Posted by chschen in Teenie Travels | Feb 16, 2013
  • Colombia/EcuadorCalí is not really a tourist town, which is one reason we liked it. The citizens are not slaves to the tourist trade, and therefore treat us as perhaps, curiosities, but not targets. We saw old churches and Posted by ceastburn in Sunny and Cricket's Terruffic Adventure | Mar 14, 2013
  • Quito/GalapagosWe left the hotel at 7:30am for the hour plus trip to the new Quito airport - that trip can be up to 2 hours in traffic. Most of the locals are too enthralled by the new location, although Posted by rpickett in Rusty Pickett, ECC | Mar 12, 2013
  • Quito Ecuador - on the way to the GalapagosWe arrived in Quito at about 11:00pm - pretty typical for flights to this wonderful city. The airport is brand new - having only been open a few weeks, but you could hardly tell it. The baggage delivery Posted by rpickett in Rusty Pickett, ECC | Mar 9, 2013
  • Finding Our Ocean[left]One night we were watching International House Hunters and the episode location was based on Salinas, Ecuador. We have been to Hawaii 3 times previously and wanted to go someplace new. Someplace where we could actually afford to Posted by rnswitzer in Travel Ooboo | Mar 9, 2013
