Our Ecuador and Galapagos Travel Blogs

Over the years the Original Travel team has been to Ecuador a number of times. We pride ourselves on our unparalleled knowledge of the destinations we send our clients, so take a look at what our very own Original Travellers have to say about Ecuador in our travel blogs:

Ahead of the Curve: Planning for 2018

We all like to think of ourselves as free spirits, booking with glorious last-minute abandon and able to act on the spur of the spontaneous moment (that's not just us, right?). Well, sorry for being the fun police on this one but when it comes to travel, the impromptu you is missing out. You see, as a general rule, the earlier you book the better your chances of securing the cheapest flights, the best accommodation and the finest guides. As luck would have it, we've come up with a selection of the destinations and experiences that you really need to be booking now for 2018. It's time to get the diaries out…

Travel by Colour: our Top Five Destinations in Latin America

Latin America is a region of many characters; football is practically a religion; the steak is the best in the world (and the only vegetarian item you're likely to find on the menu is a mojito) and the jeans are very, very tight. It's also a continent awash with colour - from bright woven textiles that hark back to indigenous populations to lush tropical flora and fauna. Travelling to Latin America means experiencing something of an optical assault by Planet Earth's very own mind-blowing colour wheel. And if that hasn't persuaded you, a dose of drool-worthy travel photography should do the trick…

The Best Honeymoon Destinations in South America

Ah the honeymoon, the perfect break to escape the drama of bringing two families together and to postpone the writing of very vague thank you notes (who did gift that nutri-2000 pasta machine?). Whilst minds automatically race to visions of white sand beaches and swaying palms, we like to think a little out of the box. We're talking South America outside of the box. Filled with beautiful people, delectable cuisine and pastoral wilderness, South America is one of Original Travel's favourite regions for honeymoons. Read our ideas below and worry not, the beaches and swaying palms haven't been entirely ditched (we're not completely insane).

Challenge Accepted!

Who watched the London marathon at the weekend? I went along to cheer on a friend and as I stood there, chocolate bar and fizzy drink in hand, enthusiastically cheering (and consequently spilling most of said fizzy drink all over the poor man in front of me) as hundreds of super-fit (and frankly super-human) people sweated it out over 26.2 miles, I had something of an epiphany. I may have missed the boat on the marathon front but there is no time like the present when it comes to challenging yourself and, in this instance, the world is well and truly your playground. So put down the cake, get off the sofa and get active people! Here are my top 5 challenges and activities around the world.
