What 8 weeks as a volunteer in Ecuador can teach you: Feelings, Experiences and Tips


1) Coca-Cola makes everything feel better. (It’s the pure cane sugar here…amazing.)

2) Never travel without climbing gear.

3) Before a weekend excursion, be sure to make a list of things to see/do using Lonely Planet, Wiki Travel, and Trip Advisor.

4) Hostals for $8 a night are soooo much better than 5 star hotels which run you dry.

5) Don’t drink the water. Ever.
