So we've hit the mark of 1 month in Ecuador, and 2 months on the road....homeless, jobless, yet not quite aimless. I was contemplating the other day if I was "ok". And luckily the answer was yes....although I have noticed that when things are not running so smooth I find my self questioning "what the hell I'm doing here, making my life so uncomfortable?" Like when I got sick for example....anything to be on my couch or on my bed with a nice cup of tea, soup on the stove, a hot bath and a movie.....or when we took the wrong route to Puerto Lopez, wad to sleep in the worst hotel ever for 4 hours only to fight our way onto a bus with standing room only at 3am....this one really made me wonder "do I really need to build more character? Is that what I'm trying to do here?"
Yes, it's times of trial that are the toughest here...but isn't that true at home?
So sure things can be difficult here, Micheal's got the flu today and we paid to much for our hostel....but yesterday, we saw some of the most amazing wildlife ever. It's whale watching season here in Puerto Lopez!
