James, a lovely British chap who stayed at the Sani Eco Lodge the same time as us, has just edited/uploaded a video of his travels in Ecuador. The first portion is all shared experiences, and brings back some amazing memories of how flipping gorgeous it was riding in canoes at sunset on Amazonian tributaries. Plus, Keep reading

A pitcher of sangria on a rooftop in Quito,  providing 360* view as the sun sets… Pretty perfect way to say goodbye.  (of course we still have 1.5hr taxi to the airport and then 20 hours over 3 flights until we’re back,  but that’s not as romantic a telling). It remains true that the local Keep reading

…And apparently our shower is haunted. Returning to our room after being gone at least 2 hours, I was organizing my toiletries bag, but had not done anything water related when suddenly the shower started running… After 15 seconds I reached over and turned the knob on and then off. Continued to run for another Keep reading

Sometimes people have really great ideas. Like when Erin emailed to see how serious I was about wanting to explore Ecuador. Or when my loose itinerary ideas had us ending with 4 nights on the coast. *happy dance* Montanita is a total vacation and surf town. And it’s an entertaining blend of vacationing families as Keep reading

Some observations: There is an openenglish.com commercial with two astronauts dancing on the moon. I swear they are singing “boom boom on the moon.” If you can find it online, the jingle is super catchy. Now that I’m back home, here is the link: https://youtu.be/BESVoGopxvU Produce vendors through out Ecuador tend to create amazing towers Keep reading

Busing through the Andes is a trip!! Some of the landscape has been beyond spectacular.  Great people watching.  Sometimes not the most physically comfortable thing,  but all part of the adventure. Day one had us take a 4 hour bus from Quito to Banos. The new bus terminal is very snazzy.  We were successfully profiled,  Keep reading

If you want to be technical about it, he's more caramel than chocolate. Sheesh

We’re back in Quito, safe and sound. Off to the Saturday market in Otavalo tomorrow. We have to leave early in the morning because an earthquake a few months ago damaged the main road there, and the detour route takes 3 hours. Ugh. Still, after our busy 5 days in the jungle, we are quite Keep reading

Reagan says she can assist with the autocorrect errors and will try to add a few photos. So Bravo to her. Slightly sad update now. Marley (Bob the bird's mate) has been missing for two days. The guides fear she's been eaten. Poor Bob is wandering all over looking for her. :(

No big deal, just using WiFi in the frigging Amazon rain forest. This world we live in is a constant wonder. When we arrived at the lodge yesterday afternoon, I counted eleven of the twenty four people using their smart phones immediately. That did make me a bit sad, as this place is breathtaking. I Keep reading

I really want to see photos of the ladies and men wearing their seriously insane shoes at 2:00 pm. I just assumed you weren't still talking about the dogs.

Man, the altitude in Quito is NOT playing around. And yes, it’s actually 9,400feet but pretty sure my lungs are rounding up. This may be shocking to some of you, but I am not a mountain climber. Ha. And having a college roomie date a climber only exposed me to a ton of climbing books Keep reading

Maybe it'll help if you wait until last to write the title? Then you can just pick out a phrase at random from your post and use it. Weird and Off-Putting Baby Feet, for example, could have been the title of this post. You'll learn all these clickbait tricks in no time, I'm sure. <3, Reagan

I am defeated by titles. The idea of titling a post feels like a crucial blogging step that I must get correct, and yet I write stream-of-consciousness and never really discover/solidify my thesis until the end (and sometimes not even then). Anyhoo, in three hours I leave for the airport, where I’ll have three hours Keep reading
