I have been living and working in Quito for almost two years. I started volunteering at The Secret Garden in Old Town and also worked at a well travelled Irish bar called Finn McCools that was started by a woman from Belfast. Through these experiences I have made countless friends that I keep in touch with even after they have made there way to other parts of the world. I have made it a priority to get them in touch with each other when they are looking for places to stay, need advise on where to go, or just want a travel buddy to catch up with.
I think it's a good practice to help people find resources that will help them travel well.
I first came to ecuador and volunteered in a program after living and working with my best friend whom was in the Peace Corp, worked for the crisis corp, and created programs for children in refugee camps in Africa.
Other than that, I enjoy daily life in Quito and have travelled a lot in the country. I have made good friends who own hostels and enjoy going to places such as Banos, Otavalo, and Cotopaxi when I'm not busy working behind the bar.
Let me know if you need info or are up for a beer!
