Next stop: Quito, Ecuador! Home from Asia for three weeks, Vermont for two days and heading to Chicago today, I figured it was about time I planned my first international adventure for the new year. Quito is on my list for top destinations in 2013 and one city I am certainly excited to explore. Nestled high in the Andes, Quito is the world’s first city to be named a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is chock full of Incan charm. Ancient heritage and tradition mingle with modernity in this urban city which is the second highest in the world.
I’ll be in Ecuador for about 10 days, 5 of which will be spent volunteering through the company IVHQ. I’ve been lucky enough to travel the world and figure it’s time to give something back while doing it.
It’s for the other 5 days that I need your help- your tips and tricks for Quito and beyond. The best places for me to see, smell, taste and feel all things Ecuador. So go ahead and click “submit” and tell me what I should not miss.
