After more than two years in Panama, it was time to move on. Despite the wonderful memories and lifelong friends we’ve made there, there was so much more we want to eat, see, and experience … so on June 1, 2013, we moved our belongings to Ecuador!

Three days after moving into our new apartment, we were on our first trip. Five days and four nights in the Amazon basin. We’d cross the Andes mountains, seeing parts of Ecuador most people never even imagined.
