#TBT!

Here are The Shakes & Rumbles again! They played at the Next Door Theater with a bunch of other great bands. It’s a shame they went on hiatus, but they made such great music.

Shutterbug Saturday: Return to Quito II (Ecuador finale)

Wow! Can you believe it?

Since I came back from Ecuador in January, I have been posting some snapshots from my vacation every Saturday. Eleven months later, I finally finish at the city where I started out in the first time I’ve been outside of the country.

This was at the Hotel Gangotena still. It was such a great place with nice rooms and great food. Yes, that is a food pic that says “happy birthday” in Spanish. It was for my sister since it was her birthday on that day.

Thanks for checking out my Ecuador photos over the past several months and for checking out my Autumn Peal blog!

[#TBT] Horse Painter @ Side Street 2016

Sorry for the lack of #TBT posts last week. It was Thanksgiving and I was busy spending time with family and then working later that day.

I was surprised that I didn’t post any videos of these guys on this blog yet. This is Horse Painter. They are an indie rock band from Algonquin, Illinois. When I saw them play, it was their 3rd show ever as a band.

Shutterbug Saturday: Return to Quito

Thanks for sticking through 16 straight weeks of Galapagos Island pictures. This is the part of the vacation where we went back to Quito.

It felt nice being back in that city after we took 2 flights from the Galapagos to Guayaquil, then back to Ecuador’s capital and 2nd largest city. We actually had these trips on my sister’s birthday at that time.

On our return to Quito, we stayed at the Hotel Gangotena which was phenomenal. I don’t think I’ve even been in a hotel this nice before.

Shutterbug Saturday: Galapagos Islands XVI

This was when we were leaving the Galapagos Islands. We got a ferry and went back to the airport as we were going back to Guayaquil. At the airport, there was the Panama Hat shop. Did you know that Panama Hats originally came from Ecuador and not Panama? Also, I took a few airplane shots as we left the island.
