Almost missed our flight!

Checking out the Quito Mirador
Checking out the Quito Mirador
Our Ecuador and Galapagos adventure began today with a bit of a scare. Our flight was scheduled to leave at 6:20am and both of us slept through our multiple alarms. We woke up at 5:20am and scrambled to get all of our bags in the car and off to the airport. Once we arrived, we found that the ticket counter for Delta was backed up and the flight did not leave for another half an hour. We counted ourselves very fortunate to have made it in time.

We arrived in Quito that evening at 10pm to Jonathan’s smiling face. He was holding an Adventure Life sign that said “Nelson”. He transferred us to our Hotel Eugenia for the night and we arranged confirmed plans for the city tour tomorrow. It was a boutique hotel with a lot of antique personality and a solid 3 star hotel. Out the window we could see a beautiful courtyard with flowers and plants to sit and enjoy life. Beyond that there was the glow of a McDonalds and Burger King down the road. We were happy for the nice bed to lay down in after a long, uncomfortable plane ride.
