Travel Feet

It was an honor and privilege to have the opportunity to travel to Ecuador with a dear friend, recently. My senses were filled with new tastes, sights, aromas, and more. I did my best to make good use of my camera, capturing at least 1000 photos, 958 of which I did not delete. While we flew to Quito and rode in cars and even a train, my feet did lots of work as well. Since they were responsible for ensuring I got the most out of my trip, here is a synopsis of our travels from the perspective of my feet.

and my right is in the Northern Hemisphere.
My shadow rests on the Equator!

anything they'd ever imagined in the
volcanic hot springs in Papallacta.

On the bus tour of Quito, were these feet walked
the peak of El Panecillo for an up-close view of
the statue of the Virgin Mary and a panoramic
view of the city of Quito, Ecuador.

Pacific Ocean Ecuador | Navigating Hectivity by Micki Bare
My left foot was the first part of my body to
experience the Pacific Ocean. The sand was
so soft and the water was warm and inviting.
