Papallataca Hot Springs

After lunch we drove about 3hrs from Tena to Papallataca to a resort: Termas de Papallataca. This area is known for it’s natural hot springs so the resort had a bunch of nice hot pools (and a few cold one’s if you want to dip in and jump back to the hot). We went and…

1.5 Days in Tena

We arrived in Tena around 3pm and checked into our Hostel in the “rainforest”. Our host recommended a local Turkish food place for dinner with ‘extra crispy fries’ ­čśé tbh we have only had soggy fries since we’ve been here so I was a little intrigued! The place was just a tiny little kitchen with…

Three days in Ba├▒os

Day 1:We left Latacunga around 9am and it took about 2hrs to drive to La Casa del Arbol in Ba├▒os. La Casa del Arbol is at the top of a mountain and has a swing that you can go on over the mountain edge! Only $1/person to get in!Got a quick pic with the classic…

Quilotoa Lake

Only one plan for the day- Quilotoa Lake! It was about 1.5hr drive from Latacunga. Had a bit of a late start so we ended up getting to the lake at 11:30. It was only $2 per person to get into the Lake area and parking was pretty simple! There was a free bathroom in…

Two days in Quito

We arrived in Quito at about 2am and had a quick medical check to make sure we had our negative covid test / didn’t have a temperature. We made it out of the airport in about 30minutes! Our hotel was only about 5minutes from the airport so thankfully we were asleep not too long after…

Exeter & Glastonbury

We planned a few stops for the day on our way back to London. We left the Wigwam around 9:30am and drove about 1.5hrs to get to Exeter. Exeter seemed like a decently big city- we went mostly to see the cathedral, but ended up walking along this pretty waterfront for a bit, which have…

Pendennis Castle & St. Michael’s Mont

The weather was not good or projected to get any better when we woke up. Strong winds, lots of rain – just the perfect outdoor weather! The area I had hoped to go (some ruins on an “island” you had to cross a bridge to get to) was closed due to the strong winds. So…

Sennen Cove – Minack Theater Coastal Walk

The Cornwall area is known for it’s many coastal walks. The coast is gorgeous with lots of little coves to explore. We decided to do the coastal walk from Sennen Cove to Minack Theater (around 7 miles), then get a cab back to Sennen Cove (where our car was parked). While it was a bit…

Stonehenge, Salisbury & Nunney Castle

We picked up the rental car from Heathrow in the morning to drive down to Cornwall. Since the drive is quite long, we decided to make a few stops on the way! I’ve lived in England for almost 2 years and still have not seen Stonehenge- so now seemed like the perfect time! I did…

Peak District

We drove up to our airbnb in Buxton after work Friday night (about 3.5hrs). We got in around 10pm and had some wine to cap off our night. Day 1 We had brekkie at our airbnb and then headed out around 10am to our “walk” for the day – Kinder Scout. I don’t really know…
