“Living in a place that was away from the hustle and bustle of the usual tourist spots gave me a greater insight into the Ecuadorian way of life.”
"At this point I was desperate for money and so I started working in the hostel for free accommodation and took on any other jobs I could get."
"Mel and I lay on the beach and talked about life, swam and surfed constantly, met new friends and generally made the most of living in such a magical spot for a short moment in time."
"I returned home and sold my store and planned to move to Australia for a year. This was one of the biggest decisions of my life so far. But even though I felt nervous, I felt very alive."
“I didn’t feel brave at all. I was scared. But not of moving overseas alone and not of what would happen once I got there. I was terrified of the alternative.”
"I then realized all my travels were essentially with my husband and it was time to step outside my comfort zone even more."
