I really enjoyed my day in Cuenca today. It was pretty relaxed, but it was great. I had a good night’s sleep at my hostel, had a great breakfast that was included with the room, and then went out to explore. I had a short walk around the historical center and then went for a bite to eat. I met a nice american couple from Arizona who are living here for a year to learn spanish. That’s a pretty cool thing to ...

... have missed. A nearby waterfall looked really nice due to all the rainfall.

There was an old, abandoned, German brewery that must have been very nice in its day with mountain views and trout filled lake on its doorstep.

Tallies: all ...

Ecuador has also been an exceptional country to experience because of its natural beauty. From volcanos and Andes mountains to the endemic species of plants and animals in the Galapagos, Ecuador never ceased to impress. Justly named, Ecuador means equator in Spanish. Passing over ...

... December after a very long journey from Mexico City. After a short cab ride from the airport we arrived at Hostal Alternativa where we had to spend a couple of nights before we got our rented apartment on the 5th of December. At Alternativa we met an American family with three children who were travelling for a whole year. The two youngest children were Tatjana and Sophias age and it was nice meeting other children and get some travel advice. They told us that we ...
