Porto Rafti

I had a full day in Greece by myself! (Nate left in the morning and my flight wasn’t until 8pm). I’ve already been to Athens so I decided to spend my day relaxing at the beach! A girl I played volleyball with in London is from Athens and recommended Porto Rafti for a nice beach…

2.5 Days in Santorini

Stay: Prime Suites, Oia (would not recommend) Day 0.5 Our ferry was supposed to leave Paros around 11am, however there was a strike that morning so it was 2hrs delayed! Unforunately, we were not made aware of the delay until we went and asked someone where the ferry was. If we’d known we could’ve tried…

2.5 Days in Paros

Stay: Sunset View Hotel Day 0.5 We arrived in Paros around 7pm. Our hotel was a little less than a mile from town, but took a bit longer to walk because we had our bags with us! The hotel is very nice though and has a great view of the sunset. We almost went into…

3 Days in Mykonos

Stayed: Constantina Zorz Xydakis (definitely recommend!) Day 1 We left Athens on an early ferry (7am). Thankfully we had no issues finding the boat so we boarded with plenty of time. The ferry ride was 2hrs 35mins so at 9:20 people started getting up to get off the ferry. Naturally we joined and disembarked the…

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’ 😂 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 Baños

Day 1:We left Latacunga around 9am and it took about 2hrs to drive to La Casa del Arbol in Baños. 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…
