    A beautiful hostel in the safe area of la forestier in Quito. Great shower, pretty garden and reliable wifi. Couldn't recommend highly enough

    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 …

    ... experience is really showing me that that's where my heart is. Being able to work on a professional level with unfamiliar populations who are in need of support is really exciting to me, and there are so many specific challenges to working with foreign populations! There are a ton of social issues that affect Canadians or North Americans as a whole, but comparatively they are minute when considering the things people living in developing countries deal with ...

Figs are a traditional Lenten food and eggs, fish and cheese are fasting foods, so it was all appropriate for eating on Good Friday.

    ... so right to get on a bus and leave the jungle behind for a few days.

    The bus was an overnighter and as usual it was a game of Russian roulette to see who my seat partner would be. It turned out to be a little boy, his mother taking a seat with her baby a few isles back. I watched as his head eventually tipped to the side at an awkward angle, then as his body slowly slid across the seat, then as his head finally came to rest on my boney shoulder. ...

    I had quite the adventure up in the Andean mountains of Ecuador. To list a few memorable moments: we visited an active volcano and a crater lake, lived for twenty-four hours with a host family and feasted with the neighbors, visited a waterfall, met with several wise elders, saw a traditional healing method performed using a guinea pig, and trekked through the wet mountain forest at night. I also learned how to grind corn ...
