To the Airport - Winging our Way Home
Our Trip to Quito, Ecuador and the Galapagos

(Ranny Pierce)
Yesterday we flew from the Galapagos to Quito. The difference in temperature is a bit shocking. The Galapagos are at sea level where the temperatures range from the 60s to the 90s, while Quito being at 9,200 feet is significantly cooler, around 60°.

Once again we were whisked away by our friendly tour guide and taken to our boutique hotel. The manager of the hotel, who parenthetically is a wonderful gentleman, gave all of us vouchers for free drinks at the restaurant. The restaurant, which is part of, and attached to the hotel, is something you shouldn't miss. It features great service and delicious food. We go to sleep exhausted and with our bellies full.

The next morning, once again, we are whisked away by our tour guide who once again takes care of everything, transportation, information, luggage, ticketing and simply being in the right place at the right time.

The plane speeds down the runway; it begins to lift off; the landing gear retracts; we look out the window and see Quito below and we know we have come to the end of our Ecuadorian and Galapagos adventure.

Don't wait! Don't hesitate! Do it now! Adventure Life! Make a reservation for Ecuador and the Galapagos's! You won't be disappointed.
