Estoy lista viajar a Ecuador... MANANA!

Tomorrow is the day. The first time I will leave the country, the first time in 5 years I will fly, the first time i'll get my passport stamped (the most exciting thing to me).
I really cannot wait... now if only someone would stop hogging the washing machine so I can finish my laundry!
One week away from talking to my mother every day might be the hardest part about the experience. She got very emotional the other day when talking about how she won't be able to see me before I get on the plane, nor will I personally be able to call her to say I landed in Miami and in Guayaquil. I did sarcastically offer the options of her coming down to Laguardia from Boston. haha
In all, it is a surreal feeling and been long awaited. I cannot believe it is finally here, but I am ready and just have to do a little more prep before 8am tomorrow. I'm hoping that during work tonight (COME VISIT ME driving the 9:30pm, 11:30pm & 1:30am runs) I will be able to listen to some more Coffee Break Espanol and get better at my spanish. I did pack my Spanish phrase book though... no worries.

During the break, I have set up posts to automatically post on here with some interesting cultural facts about Duran, and Ecuador in general!

See you all in a week!

Ciao amigos! Have a great Spring break!


  1. I hope your trip is phenomenal, and I want lots of stories when you return!

  2. Thanks Court! It was the most amazing and humbling experience I have ever had in my life. That is a really neat blog! I can't wait for you to go to Europe and hear all about it.
