It was middle of the wet Australian winter and time had come to embark on a 2 month trip to South America. Ecuador - Colombia - Peru. 3ish weeks in each country meeting up with a different range of homies along the way.
First leg of the trip Jye and I hit Ecuador which we had heard many magical, mysterious rumors about its rugged, mountainous countryside and is home to one of the oldest sketchiest parks in all of the continent.
First flight delayed and some 24ish hours and 4 planes later we had arrived. It was difficult to do to much as the air was to thin, Quito being at over 2,500 meters above sea level is already higher then the largest mountain in our homeland. When we arrived our bags/boards had never arrived and to top it off our beds in the hostel had been given away.... we were not off to a good start.
