To All the Ships at Sea,
We all have bucket lists. I fulfilled one recently, on my 3 week trip to Ecuador. I now have visited all the countries in South America. I rarely have regrets but in this case my only regret is, I should’ve done this 20 years ago.
Ecuador is a hidden gem. It is a country that goes rom sea level to 14,000 feet in 3 hours. There are more people in Brooklyn than in all of Ecuador put together. It is beautiful and extremely cost effective. My trip was dual purpose, to shoot a corporate video and go for a health vacation. Both did not disappoint and on the contrary, entailed much more than I would’ve dreamed of. I’m going to select 2 dozen people for an online focus group. I had no intention of a photo safari in Ecuador when I arrived, however, nowI think it’s a no brainer. It would be like mixing Cuba and Spain together. These two are kind of what Ecuador is like. Guess what? Another great advantage…Ecuador is a hopping off place for the Galapagos. On my next trip we’ll spend 2 or 3 weeks in Ecuador and 1 week to 10 days in the Galapagos. Extremely cost effective and absolutely outrageous.
Last but not least I have found a world class driver/guide that has the ability to make everything happen for the biggest amount of bang for everyones’ buck.
