So, I Joined a Cult, Also Known As Camp Raw Vegan

A travel blog entry by mariposanegra


... by the end (that almond pate was slamming, Tony). In one week, I lost 11 pounds and my blood pressure came down about 20 points. And I did see the wisdom of the plant based, whole foods diet.

So am I a raw vegan now, you ask? No. I mean, they didn't have a magic wand at this retreat! But, I am much more focused on eating more fruits and veggies as the majority of my diet. I think my immediate goal is to ...

The 4 Regions of Ecuador and Leaving for Peru

A travel blog entry by katyflo


... time came and I got to the horrible bus terminal again. The woman at the ticket office told me I'd have to wait half an hour before I could buy my ticket, which I did.

Beach, surfing and Montañita Spanish School

A travel blog entry by salsta17


... by one of the other interns Michael. Big group of us and chatting to nice English couple, Debra and Adam, along with Sofia. Was introduced to cocktail alley, Eugenios stand and had tasty Eugenios Special cocktail for the bargain price of $2.50. Highly recommend checking out cocktail alley if you ever make it to Montañita, small wooden stands covered with spirit bottles with a few plastic chairs in front that make some of the best cocktails I've ever tasted. ...
