The early departure to drive back to Calama and then fly back to Santiago was the start of the long but uneventful trip home. This is a chance to give kudos to Adventure-Life and its partners for the smooth connections that I've always had. Whether it has been airplanes, buses, vans or boats the connection was always there. My record was 9 different vehicles in one day to get from the Galapagos Islands back to mainland Ecuador.
How to sum up this trip? Of course it was a chance to see spectacular scenery, meet new people, and experience a different culture. Being open to learning about such things, knowing I will also learn more about myself, is what makes adventure travel so rewarding.
