Ecuador Travels.


I recently ventured to Ecuador to visit my parents who moved there to retire. Here are my photos. Enjoy, dolls! 

We began our trip in Cuenca and started with a bus tour. 

The old church's architecture was beautiful. 

There were lots of colorful murals, particularly outside of the schools. 


The New Cathedral's blue domes were striking.

The views at the highest point in Cuenca were gorgeous. 


Windswept and beautiful! 




We took the Devil's Nose train through the mountains.


An Indigenous woman glancing my way.

Sadly, there were many stray dogs. This one was particularly adorable and sweet.

A sassy looking llama with piercing eyes. 


We stayed at an ecolodge in the Amazon rainforest. Can you say 'mosquito nets?'


We went to Banos which is famous for their waterfalls and volcanic hot springs.

Andrew contemplating his fate before jumping in a canyon. Eek! 

One of the most memorable sites was Crater Lake. It's vibrant blue hues are from minerals. 

It was a fantastic trip!
