I just came back from A Trip To The Middle Of The World To Visit My Family. And it was just wonderful.
My family lives in Ecuador. We are all originally from Peru, but my dad moved to Ecuador for work many years ago. I also lived in Quito, the capital, for about 7 years. I graduated high school and started my first two years of college there.
Visiting my family was great. I really enjoyed the week I spent in Ecuador with my family. Nothing feels better than being with the ones you love. My kids had a blast!
Here are some pictures I wanted to share with all of you from my wonderful trip. Ecuador. In the middle of the World. A beautiful country in South America. Nature. Fresh mountain air. Family. Friends. Just perfect. I hope I go back soon!
If you decide to visit Ecuador, I recommend you go to Lago San Pablo. It is about 1 and a half hours from Quito. It is really a beautiful place where you can enjoy many activities and try delicious Ecuadorian food. Here are some pics 🙂
My favorite dishes where Ecuadorian ceviche, empanadas de verde, and a delicious mushroom-garlic crepe. My kids also enjoyed trying different flavors.
Another wonderful short trip from Quito is Papallacta. It is really a beautiful place to enjoy nature. They have volcanic thermal waters that have detoxifying benefits! We really had a great time there and felt super extra relaxed afterwards.
A week spending time with my family and enjoying the beauty of nature was priceless. My kids enjoyed spending time with their cousins and our trip to Ecuador was a success. The kind of memories you keep in your hearts for a long long time.
I am so glad I was able to go this year to visit my family. I was able to see this beautiful country once again. The place that reminds me of my years in high school. Great memories of mountains, friends, and good times.
