Lost paths and sack lunches


…And we thought that the hosteria Izhcayluma in Vilcabamba couldn’t get any better.

And then they went ahead and packed us a lovely sack lunch because we were going to be catching an early bus and would miss the lovely free breakfast they normally provide. Seriously. Packed lunch. With a napkin. Best hostel ever!

Our last day in Vilcabamba was definitely worth our trickery of the night before. We set out for the most striking and dramatic hike yet. Walking for hours over rolling green hills and hiking (or scrambling) up nearly vertical cliffs. Even getting lost and having to bushwack through thorny and briar covered hills just added to the experience.

Well we may not have enjoyed it quite as much if we didn’t have foot massage appointments for that night back at our hostel.

And getting back to our hostel. Packed lunches?!

I think of California as officially "home" but can usually be found a lot closer to the equatorial belt. After finishing a Masters program in 2011 I found myself trying to decide between a couple of different high-powered career options. I decided I wasn't quite ready to "grow up" and went with an entirely different plan which involved selling off everything I owned with my partner Tom and buying a one-way ticket to Colombia. Our plan was to travel "Till The Money Ran Out" and then go home to start our grown-up lives. Instead, we started our own app development company on the road and have been criss-crossing the globe, traveling, working, eating spicy food and refusing to "grow up" ever since.

    So basically you are saying that you can be had for the price of a sack lunch? Seriously, I love your blog and have truly savored our days together so far.
