it has been a while since I wrote something here. I returned to South America and right now I am in Tena Ecuador. I am volunteer at a local school and helping to create a travel agency with some friends, I just setup the homepage and some basic information. Both a very well experienced travelers, one is from Ecuador and one from Austria. The both know nearly every place in Ecuador, thus they know where to go when and how, which food or place is safe. Also the know the good and the bad of traveling and thus will try to emphasize the good and minimize the bad. If you wanna combine adventure and safety then you should check them out at Travel Ecuador with Friends . Note that I don’t get any commission, but both helped me organize my trip and volunteering.
If you wanna know something about my volunteering experience check out my new blog adventure2share.com.
I sorted out some of the best photos and places from my South America backpacking trips and stumbled over a photo set of the “ruinas de quilmes”. A place definitely worth a visit, even the tride through the desert was really amazing. Even though I am Austrian I usually don’t have the urgent need to walk or climb on every bigger rock, but in Quilmes I really enjoyed it. Afterwards I realized that my small backpack was - of course - filled with books ;) I just needed the camera and some water :)
This is a video slideshow with some of the photos I took in Arequia (Peru), while working as a bar “manager” and the Point Youth Hostel. These pictures are from several trips (exploring) and cover safe and unsafe places. I hope you like the impressions.
