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!

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: Alausi/Guayaquil

What’s up?

Here are the last few photos of my trip to Alausi before going to Guayaquil. For those of you don’t know, Guayaquil is the biggest city in Ecuador with over 3.5 million people living there. We were at a nice hotel and this was the last day where we were with Alex our tour guide. This city felt like Chicago to me, but with palm trees and the Pacific Ocean instead of Lake Michigan in terms of aesthetics.

Shutterbug Saturday: Baños de Agua Santa

Now, we’ll be delving into some photos from Baños, Ecuador!

We stayed in the Hotel Sangay which is near the hot springs in town. We looked at the cityscape of this small town which is in the middle of the Andes and the Amazon.
