Montañita mas

14/09/19 Reversing out of the bus terminal in Cuenca, we give a fellow bus a "love tap". Literally every bus I've been on in Ecuador has reversed into another bus. Travelling from Cuenca to Guayaquil, inbound to the coastal party town, Montanita. Team Ecuador would assemble again. Queue Justin Bieber song references courtesy of Dave... Continue Reading →

Baños y Cuenca

Bańos. Translated from Spanish to English, means, toilet. There is so much dog shit in the streets, the dogs certainly consider it a toilet... Bańos has many thermal springs, zip lining, rafting, waterfalls and a giant swing on a hill (for ppl to take their perfect insta photo tbh). Team Ecuador (the new name for... Continue Reading →

Quito to Cotopaxi

Sitting at the back of a 2 hour water taxi has me absolutely drenched. A short walk and I'm at hostel Crossman. I've booked here purely because it's semi central... Continue Reading →

Breaking boarders

Waking to the sound of waves caressing the sweet sands of Máncora, I go for my final Peru run. During which, I find 5 soles on the road. It's a good day. Hauling ass to Ecuador. Cutting it fine for a 10am departure, I'm powering to the bus station. Aussie couple, Rhys and Nicola pass... Continue Reading →


From Trujillo, I catch a night bus to Máncora. Sheenie was detouring to find volunteer work elsewhere... until we reached Trujillo, and the weather forecast for elsewhere was shitty. Incoming, Máncora. Máncora is a small, touristy, beach town, on the coast of northern Peru. There isn't much to do, besides surf, kite surf, swim and... Continue Reading →
