That day in Potosi there was a bus drivers’ strike, all the buses where parked in the different streets in order to block completely the traffic.
As a result the city was quite and calm and the drivers were enjoying a football match in one of the main squares. .
Love this photo, she was in such a perfect instagram position!
What I will bring with me of the bolivian ladies is exactly this: their hair in braids, the traditional clothes and their faces (so hard to photograph but impressed in my memories)!
When attempting to live life outside the norm of our culture, we absolutely cannot wish for it to magically happen. We have to straight-up do something about it.
I could have wished to go to Ecuador my whole life; however, what got me there was making daily, tangible sacrifices to be able to save the money, writing the resignation letter, researching volunteer organizations, and getting on that freaking airplane. If you want a certain life, you have to MAKE IT HAPPEN.⠀
Check out the blog today for 3 places in Ecuador still in my heart. And get out there and make your life one you actually want to live. 🧡
Goodbye, beautiful Ecuador! I will miss you, but I can’t wait to hug my babies and take the inspiration you’ve given me back to share!
Some fun facts for you:
This was the 5th young living farm I have visited in 5 years.
I hiked over 20 miles in 3 days while there.
We stayed in 3 hostels and 3 hotels (the mountain village hostels were by far our favorites).
The farm has over 1000 acres!
The tree in this photo is called a Cebu (sp?) tree and it’s a protected species in Ecuador. They are all over the farm and I loved all of them!
Important words I learned in Spanish on this trip:
Cafe con leche
Who is going to one of the farms next year??? #younglivingfarm#ecuador#chongon#platinumretreat2018#homebound#bestvacationever#nomads#fulltimetravel#southamericantravel
