    Back for our 3rd visit in as many weeks as it is just so conveniently located, the staff are great and it's good value. Just an extra bathroom and toilet would put the icing on!

    This was a serviceable hostel that was pretty comfortable (some beds are softer than others) and mostly friendly (the day workers were nice, but the owners´family seemed a bit short). This place is big amongst Europeans it seems. There is a small community kitchen, but you have to buy your own drinking water. Not sure it deserved the rave reviews the guidebooks gave it though...

    I've been blown away by the number of you who've taken the time to send me Facebook messages, whatsapps and emails to wish me well on my travels. Thank you so much to everyone! After the bumpiest of bumpy landings given the altitude, I finally arrived in the world's second highest city Quito (which stands at an elevation of 2,800m above sea level …

    Arriving in Quito on a sunday evening was a tad colder than expected. One thing about South America is the weather is never how you will expect it to be. Quito is high in the Andes surrounded by gorgeous mountains and active volcanos. The city itself has the population of Brisbane (2.2mil) over a much smaller area so its very densely packed in. Made up of three main tourist areas, Old Town, New Town and the Business Centre.

    ... it's actually higher than Mt. Kilimanjaro! (By 2m)!! The way it works is you go to sleep at base camp at 7pm and wake up at midnight or 1am and you end up at the summit at 9am! The only thing is you are scaling a glacier, it's -25 and apparently 1 in 2 experienced mountaineers actually make it to the summit! I really really want to but I'm pretty intimidated by the stats! Tonight we played card games and hung out! Tomorrow were hittin the town for one of the girls ...

    ... below! Okay not quite into the river but off the bridge nonetheless and a great adrenaline rush was followed by a possibly greater pain to my male parts. I was so happy that I managed to jump off and I just relaxed for the rest of the day apart from trying some of the local produce including Fritada (pork), some sort of taffy candy and also raw sugar cane (Surprisingly I'm a fan). After the rest got back from their rafting we had a last dinner with Stef & Drew as ...

    ... searching for just the right jackets! We actually found them in the first few shops but continued looking in about 25 other shops and then headed back to the first ones! Bronte and I bought beautiful jackets, but Andrew's shoulders were too broad for any of the jackets and was unable to buy anything. Unfortunately, nothing was available in grande grande!

    By this time it was about 6.30pm and we had to get going as ...
