I have just returned from...
Ecuador and the Galápagos Islands
.. a trip that was even more incredible than I could have imagined. I spent two days in Quito soaking up Ecuadorian culture, including a visit to Cotopaxi – South America’s most active volcano – then set sail around the Galápagos aboard Silversea’s Silver Origin. The diversity of the wildlife was remarkable, and I didn’t realise how close you could get to the animals! It really is another world.
My next destination is...
I got a taste for the country after a fleeting visit as part of a trip to Guatemala and Belize – it was enough to leave me longing to discover more. Not only do I love the rich culture and zingy flavours, but I’ve always been a fan of holidays that combine adventure with beach, so I’m really hoping to find beautiful colonial towns and explore some Mayan temples too.
