Gracias Ecuador!

I’m a lucky man. I believe the real wealth is inside and not outside. I believe meeting and learning are worth more than money. I believe traveling is my way to happiness. And I can say that only because I share my experiences!

I have been in Ecuador for one month, almost all of that time I have been on my mountain bike, except one week on the coast for surfing. I was alone with my very reliable Rocky Mountain Slayer, a 30 litre backpack, an action camera, a sketch book and my painting! Yeah… and music too! But Ecuador has its own rhythm, its own heart beat. In the giant golden grassland, in the forest or with your feet deep in the volcanic sand, looking at 6310 meters volcano, you can hear the heart of this rich and incredible country. The people are as peaceful as the land is varied and the trails are amazing as volcanoes are high.

I love Ecuador. I love life.

 Hi PHeller, this is almost my job ... I'm lucky! And yes, i'm fluent in spanish. That helps a lot, to live a real immersion in the country! Riding in Ecuador was AWESOME because every day was different. And riding from 5000 meters above sea level to primary forest is incredible as a travel and biking experience.

 Hey Tito, really nice trip you did there!!
I've been in Ecuador last summer, also had my bike there and was located around ambato most of the time. This site helped us out with nice GPS tracks: www.mountainbiking-ecuador.com

Have been to peru afterwards, also a solo trip, always a great experience!![url=' andee88.pinkbike.com/album/Peru']

 The Rafting ain't bad either...just bring your dry suit Wink Totally agree BTW, Ecuador rocks. The Fiance and I are planning on taking my Toyota all the way down to Tierra Del Fuego and through every country we can make here in the next 3 years (takes a LOT of planning to do something like this) and I'm already antsy to leave... Too bad I have to work, get married and live between now and then hahahahahahaha
