      Hi all, I'm a French guy living now in Ibarra.

      My passion: mountaineering, hiking, camping... CLIMBING VOLCANOES ! I need to find people as it is dangerous to climb mountains on its ownno...

       

      And here that's quite hard to find people, as most of people don't see the interest of climbing! ...
      I can't and don't want to pay a guide for climbing volcanoes which do no require a guide and it is much more interesting with friends. smiley Contact me!!

    • Getting TO Baltra airport

      Isla Santa Cruz Apr 15, 2014 at 1:18 PM

      We have a screwy problem that my paranoia (Anything that might go wrong WILL!) causes me to ask a few questions. We are going to fly into Baltra the day before our Celebrity cruise leaves. The hotel has arranged-for 65 bucks- to meet us at the airport, escort us onto the shuttle bus and across on the ferry to a taxi to the hotel. For irritating reasons Celebrity insists that we must return all the way to the airport, the next morning and they "cannot" link up with us anywhere else--(like at the bottom of the hill from the airport).

      So, does the shuttle between the ferry dock and the airport run frequently or intermittently? Is there a problem with us trying to get back from the ferry dock to the airport without escort?? (Celebrity has said it is not LEGAL for us to be unescorted!!) I guess we are confident we can get back from the hotel to the ferry dock on the Santa Cruz side--for a lot less than $65-but is there a problem with us getting across and up to the airport on our own??

      Thanks so much!!

      PS My paranoia is not absurd! I managed to be trying to get to the airport-in Australia the morning the Sydney bridge was suddenly closed by a strike--in Copenhagen the morning the Metro was closed for maintenance with less than 12 hours notice--in Los Angeles when the driver coming to pick us up called at the very time we were expecting him to arrive to say he was an hour away "because of traffic"

    • Flights to Galapagos ( Baltra)

      Ecuador Mar 23, 2014 at 6:02 PM

      My wife and I are planning a trip to the Galapagos in June. I'm looking for flight information. Is it advisable to book 1 week in advance while in Quito or to book several months in advance? I have found web sites for Aerogal, Tame and Lan ( best price $510 cdn) but have been told there are cheaper flights. Any suggestions on when and where to book flights?
      thank you!

      cruise question for July 2014

      Galápagos Islands Apr 9, 2014 at 5:49 AM

      hi all,
      I read lots of postings about last minute booking on cruises in Galapagos. I will be in Quito July 6. i will be in Ecuador from july 6-28. Many people say they get amazing last minute deal. I would like advice on what would be a reasonable last minute price ( a range) for tourist superior, for 8days? And in which area of Quito to find these deals? my first day will be about shopping around. Should I book a flight now to the Galapagos, then try to find a last minute cruise on the island? would you also recommend I stay longer in the island (which one) for a couple more days? we are snorkelers.
      I know I will be in peak season, but willing to take the risk of last minute deals. your advice is much appreciated! Mario.baril@hotmail.fr

    • ‎!!! Missing: Jonathan Simon !!!

      by Wunderlich85 Online Now Aug 8, 2011 at 8:01 PM

      ‎!!! Missing: Jonathan Simon !!!

      His name is Jonathan Simon, DoB: 9/11/1989, Munich.

      He went missing on Sat 8/6/2011 in Ecuador close to a little village called Pailon del Diablo, nearest town there is called Banos, on a biking path called Routa des Cascades.

      He was last seen at around 7pm local time by the friend he was travelling with. The boys decided to take different routes and meet up again at the other side of a waterfall which should have taken them each about 10-15 minutes.

      Jonathan never showed up and went missing ever since.

      Local police had been informed and did start a search for him, but apparently stopped their efforts after about 10 hours with no results or clues.

      Time is of the essence as a search and rescue team should be formed privately or by the authorities, but the longer we wait or waste time to organize this, the more likely it becomes that Jonatahan will no longer be around that area as it is apparently close to the Pan American highway or help might not come just in time for him.

      So any strings anyone can pull over there: go for it!

      You can find a picture of Jonathan on the profile of this group (or alternatively I posted his photo as my profile picture as well – as everyone who cares to have Jonathan found should do btw)

      Thank you for your help!

    • volcano smoke ?

      by travellingsoon Online Now Jul 25, 2007 at 2:04 PM

      i am thinking of spending some time in banos, or possibly patate - so i would like to know if there is smoke there - from the volcano. and if so, how much and how often? have people complained of it hurting their eyes, or causing a chronic cough?

      when i lived on the big island of hawaii, i got very sick from the volcano smoke on the kona side. it looked like the smog in los angeles, and everyone called it vog.

      thank you - i appreciate your help.
