Wanderlust | Ecuador

24. August 2020

We are nearing the end of winter in the Southern hemisphere and spring day is only one week away. Soon we will notice new blossoms and leaves all around. The beauty of spring always reminds me of natural evolution and new beginnings.

In our 4-piece blog trip around the world, we visit a stunning beautiful countryside that even fascinated Darwin.

It’s one out of 17 mega diverse-countries – with a genuine love for Mother Nature. The protection of the whole environment is part of their constitution, and you will see and feel when you visit this city. Despite its relatively small size, Ecuador is home to an astounding array of wonders that include picturesque colonial towns, Amazonian rainforest, the spectacular peaks of the Andes, two vulcano’s and of course the fragile but alluring Galápagos Islands.

Its beauty is almost indescribable.

 

Let’s start in a truly special town; Ecuadors‘ capital, Quito.
Fun fact: 2,850m above sea level it is the highest official capital city in the world. With their great amount of churches, splendid palaces and monastery gardens full of corners, idyllic patios, cafes and museums – it is the most interesting of whole South America. If you ever visit the Quito, remember both a rain jacket and your swimming suit. It’s kind of a wise decision, especially if you take a look over the green hills up to the snow-covered summits of Pichincha or Tungurahua.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What you really need to try, Chicha Murada! It’s a drink made of fermented black corn.

Don’t worry if this does not sound like your cup of tea, you can also enjoy a huge array of exotic juices made of tree tomatoes or Naranjillas.
