Quito brings another change of leg. It was only Ben, Nic and me continuing on to Cartagena with Izzie, TJ and Cindy, so we were saying goodbye to Shanyn, Leon, Cathy, Sue and Ken. It seems particularly strange not to have Leon on the trip now, as he was the one remaining person from our original group.
However Leoni, who was with us from BsAs to Cusco had met us in Quito, and we had managed to persuade her to join us again for this last leg, which was good. Other than that we had seven new people getting on. These are Annelies and Sien from Belgium, Simon from England, Axel from Germany, Julie from Wales, Mary from Australia and Pirjo from Finland but now living in Norway.
So there are eleven of us for the final push to Cartagena. On we go!
Welcome to our travel blog. We are Tabitha and Nic. In 2011 we 'retired' in our early 40s and set off to travel the world. We spent our first year in South America and have been lucky enough to make two trips to Antarctica.
Our blog is a record of our travels, thoughts and experiences. It is not a guide book, but we do include some tips and information, so we hope that you may find it useful if you are planning to visit somewhere we have been. Or you may just find it interesting as a bit of armchair travel.
