Adios Ecuador, Hola Colombia

This will be our first post about Colombia, the country with many expectations. Our first main destination is San Agustin but let’s first reflect shortly on Ecuador and the border crossing. After Peru and Bolivia we had a more laid back time in Ecuador. I want to thank all the backpackers who skip Ecuador and…

Latacunga and Quilotoa

Hi there! This post is about our 3 day stay in the middle of the ecuadorian Andes. Let’s starts with Latacunga. A small town with it’s own airport, this place is relatively good situated for it’s connections to all kinds of places in Ecuador. It’s a indigenous town, where the ladies like to wear plenty…

Little Mindo

Hola Hola, Welcome to a short post about Mindo. Short because there isn’t that much to tell about Mindo and short because we only did one activity. Mindo is a cute little town just a few hours away from Quito. It’s so small that you walk in 10 minutes from one side to the other….

Ecuadorian Amazon

Hi all, I am finally coming around to put down everything we experienced in the ecuadorian Amazon. Let’s try to forget that we are already long gone and in the middle of our colombian adventure in Cali (hups..) As you might have read in our previous post about Baños, we had already reached the start…

Good sh*t in Baños

Long time no write, but here I’m again to write something about the past. This time about Baños! Baños litterly means toilets in spanish, but this town was nothing close to sh*t. Actually Baños was probably my favorite destination in Ecuador (Galapagos wouldn’t count of course). Many people visiting Ecuador would probably say that Baños…

Kuelap & Gocta

Dear friends, Going forther up north in Peru, Chachapoyas was one of our first determined destinations when planning our trip. Chachapoyas is one of the entries to the peruvian Amazon and indeed you can tell as soon as you get out the bus. It’s very wet (raining when we arrived) and very green. Chachapoyas was…

Peruvian Coast – Trujillo and Huanchaco

After many hikes at high altitude, many times freezing my hands while taking landscape pictures – we finally arrived in warmer regions: The nothern coast of Peru. We made our way to Trujillo by bus from Lima (Linea, 8hrs) during the day, so we arrived just after nightfall. The Plaza de Armas of Trujillo is…

Rushing Huaraz

I can read your first thoughts reading the titel. Why would we be in a rush when we have 6 months in South America. The reason for this is that we found a cheap ticket to Galapagos from Guayaquil(Ecuador) for like 200 euros cheaper than the average price. The flight was unfortunately a week earlier…

Lima Again

After a 23 hour bus ride from Cusco we arrived back in Lima to spend two days before heading to the north of Peru and heading towards Ecuador. During this stopover we chilled alot without purpose. We stayed again at the Pariwana hostel which was still as good as the first time. We walked through…
