Having lived in a number of countries prior to this adventure, I know that it doesn't really matter to me where I am. As long as I like what I do, get enough sleep, my veggies, music and some sports, my basic needs are covered.
But Ecuador is beautiful, and I will show you five of the things that I most looking forward to enjoy in my new environment.
1. The Andean highs

Quito is located right in the middle of the Andes mountains, so hiking should be among my new hobbies.
2. Pacific ocean

4. Fruit overload

One of the things that struck me most of all during my previous visit to Ecuador, is the cornucopia of fruits. There's a juicer in our container - we'll be using it!

Even though roses are associated with English gardens, the roses from Ecuador are famous worldwide (my wedding bouquet contained nothing but Ecuadorian roses).
