Image description In the fall of 2002 one of our dreams came through when we went to Ecuador. It was our first journey with the touroperator "Baobab" and we were well pleased about the organisation. Especially our tourguide Evelien did a great job to help us where we needed it and gave us great tips during our stay. It was our first journey to South-America. So quite exciting after a number of holidays spent in the Middle- and Far East. We walked in the pure nature a lot and we did like it very much actually. We also climbed the Cotopaxi and the Chimborazo (more hiking than climbing). On the first volcano we even went to a glacier. Quite strange to stand on a mass of ice situated on the equator. Following on our journey through the mainland of Ecuador we visited the Galapagos Islands. For photo's and useful links see the Galapagos entry in the main menu.
