Weekly Round Up + What We Will Miss About Ecuador

Ecuador, TRAVEL

Hola, friends. Happy Sunday. Yes, I missed Friday. It was moving day. We are no longer living in Quito, Ecuador. At 8pm on Friday night, we put our bags into our apartment storage and hopped a night bus to Cuenca for two weeks. We are going to soak up time with our kids, immerse ourselves […]

Full-time Travel Is Not Endless Vacation

Ecuador, TRAVEL

Hola, friends! Happy Tuesday. I cannot believe we’re only four days away from leaving Quito, our home of 10 months. I am excited for our visit to Cuenca, sad to leave our tribe here, happy to reconnect with family and friends in the US for six weeks, optimistic about our next adventure, and so much […]

Goodbye Quito, Ecuador!

COMMUNITY, Ecuador

Hola, friends. OK, I have been a bit down in the dumps this last week. I am NEVER down in the dumps. I will be on my way to the grave one day and still think I have another 30 years left in me. I can find the silver lining in everything! And if you doubt me, […]

Weekly Round Up + Travel Expectations For France

Ecuador, France, TRAVEL

Hola, friends. Well, I had good intentions of going live with this post on Friday, but life happened and we hit a couple of bumps that needed ironing out (more on this in a bit). Did you have a great weekend? If you are a dad, I want to wish you a belated Father’s Day. […]

Volunteering After The Ecuador Earthquake, 2016

Ecuador, TRAVEL

Hola, friends. It’s Wednesday (Sorry Inside a Traveler’s Walls is absent this week) and I want to share something we did a couple of weeks ago. We went with our friends to the beach to do our part in helping Ecuador through the earthquake tragedy that took place on April 16, 2016. The 7.8 magnitude earthquake took […]

Exposing Our Children to Human Diversity

Ecuador

Hola, friends. I am still thinking about you, Orlando. This nonsense just has to stop. I can’t stop thinking about it. Why is it so bad to have people around us who live differently than we do? I’ve never understood the mindset of only surrounding ourselves with those who are of the same race, gender, religion, […]

Hiking To Pichincha Volcano (or not)

Ecuador, FAMILY

Hola, friends. I honestly don’t think I can say Happy Monday today. Oh America, what is happening? My country and my people. This saddens me more than I can convey. I have a lot to say about this shooting, but I still need to process it. What I can say is that I went from wanting stronger gun […]

Traveling the Galapagos: Santiago, Rabida, Seymour and Baltra

Ecuador, EDUCATION

Hola, friends. It’s Wednesday! And I am happy to report my altitude headache is gone. What a pain! This is the 3rd one I have had and they are no fun. I am thinking I probably won’t be making any more trips to sea level before we head out of Quito. I tried everything and nothing […]

How To Do Galapagos On A Budget

Ecuador, TRAVEL

Hola, friends. How are you today? It’s Friday! One day closer to adventuring on the weekend! We have big plans to see many of the parts of Quito we have missed thus far, plus a killer hike up into the Andes. I can’t wait to get out and move our bodies, as well as interact […]
