      Day 2 von Mindo nach Canoa

      October 4, 2021 in Ecuador ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

      Nach einem super Frühstück ging es zeitig los bei 13 Grad und Regen. Die Strecke ging durch die Anden, über eine Hängebrücke bis zum Äquator. Danach durch die Shrimpfarms entlang der Pazifikküste bis zu unserer traumhaften Unterkunft in Canoa direkt am Strand. Insgesamt 300km voll toller Eindrücke.Read more

      February 26, 2022 in Ecuador ⋅ ☁️ 27 °C

      Mompiche und unsere Unterkunft gefällt uns außerordentlich gut....leider kommen hier die Tage keine Wellen mehr an, also ziehen wir weiter

      Ziel ist heute Canoa, hier erreicht der aktuelle swell wieder die Küste und somit haben wir kleine aber feine Wellen 😁

      Hier angekommen wundern wir uns warum alle Unterkünfte plötzlich ausgebucht ist und erfahren auch hier wird der Karneval gefeiert 😂
      Wir haben ein Zimmer in einen schönen hostel mit viel Holz und Bambus gebaut, es liegt nur 2 Straßen vom Strand entfernt und etwas ab vom Trubel, weil auch hier wird die Musik gerne voll aufgedreht 🙃

      Canoa - short overnight stay

      August 15, 2021 in Ecuador ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

      Travelled today round about 2-3 h up further north from Manta to the small beach town Canoa.

      On the way I found beautiful nature (dry forest, trees looking like out of a Tim Burton movie…) but was too lazy to stop and take pics 😉. Was a pleasure driving through that environment, on the other hand the streets are getting more difficult to drive on as further north I make it due to the worsening quality. Luckily I have a good all terrain bike at hand 😎, which I definitely recommend for making this route!

      Arrived pretty late in Canoa and was lucky finding a place to sleep in Cocoa Inn (20 USD per single) due to public holidays in Ecuador. The view of the terrace on the ocean was really nice, got a safe parking spot and the people super friendly 👍…even though the weather turned out pretty cloudy.

    • Day 84


      January 29 in Ecuador ⋅ ☁️ 26 °C

      Unser erster Stop an der Küste Ecuadors. Endlich mal wieder heißes Wetter und kein Regen. Wir haben dort einen schönen Fleck gefunden, an dem wir ein paar Tage verbracht haben. Und unsere lieben Feuerwehr Freunde haben uns auch überraschend besucht. Es gab viele Pina Coladas, wir haben Siedler von Catan und Cambio gespielt. Wir haben sogar Sport am Strand gemacht. Und natürlich haben wir wieder ein bisschen an der Heidi gebastelt. Wir haben irgendwas wieder an der Elektrik gemacht, und schließlich endlich den MPPT Regler richtig eingestellt. Aber das gehört wie immer dazu.Read more

      Heute Abend geht es schon wieder Richtung Berge und ich werde das Meer eine Zeit lang nicht mehr zu Gesicht bekommen. Nach knapp 1,5 Wochen Strand und Hitze freue ich mich aber auch schon wieder auf etwas Abkühlung in den Bergen. :-)
      Anbei ein paar Eindrücke meiner Zeit in Canoa.

    • Day 75


      December 26, 2015 in Ecuador ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

      It took 7 hours and 3 buses to get to Canoa but totally worth it, we loved it so much that we extended our stay with an extra day. Fantastic little beach town, the Pacific ocean is smooth and surprisingly warm with big waves. Even to managed to have our first proper night out on the 24th. Stayed out almost until 1:00! To be fair also started at 3 pm. Had lots of cocktails, beer, wine before we left for dancing where made some new local friends who's great idea was to share a bottle of tequila...
      The beach was fantastic even managed to surf, had a 3 hours lesson (was suppose to be 1, but the guy was cool) and we were just professionals. Our faces are still so burnt and hot but had an amazing time. It's gonna be difficult to leave tomorrow from the relaxed little town where we spent our first Christmas together...

    • Day 4

      Vamos a la playa!

      July 12, 2018 in Ecuador ⋅ ☁️ 22 °C

      Today was relocation day. The Serranos had rented a yellow school bus which took us to the west coast of Ecuador in about 7 hours. During the trip we got to experience the changes of the nature and climate. Ecuador has four different climate zones: the mountains, the coast, the rainforest and finally the islands. Before our journey has come to an end we will have experienced all of them.

      After aprox 4 hours on the bus we took a short stop. The kids couldnt believe how lucky they were to have chips and buiscits for lunch! I tasted and enjoyed a bag of chrisps containing a mixture of potatoes, banana and bacon! Not my ordinary lunch but ok!

      After almost 8 hours on the road we had ourselves a cooked meal at a restaurant at San Clemente, the fishing village we are staying in until sunday. The sun had already set when we checked into the hotel but we are looking forward to have some sightseeing around the neighbourhood tomorrow- we are staying almost on the beach and we can hear the sea from our window.

      Some down time

      July 15, 2018 in Ecuador ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

      The day after the wedding we had some well deserved rest. The wedding couple had payed for the entire hotel and we enjoyed some breakfast with the newly extended Serrano family and made use of the hotel pool. Tilde practiced her diving and Freja her floating skills. Viggo just splashed around with his floating devices. We stayed a couple of hours after we checked out and watched the world cup finals on a big screen the hotel staff put up.

      In the afternoon we went back to Jim and Emelia at Casa de Playa and hung out the rest of the day around our rooms and on the beach. The girls played cards and Viggo were hanging around his grandparents and me and Bengt had some time to just sit, relax and read. I heard that back in Sweden the heat wave continue and some of my friends are volonteering to stand watch over areas in danger of forest fires. Apparently you guys have around 35 degrees, we just have 25 and quite windy as we are located right on the beach.

      In the evening we went back to our grilled chicken place for dinner. A really lovely family: they decide for the evening what to grill which means the menue might change from night to night but the food is always fresh. And i have managed to do our order in spanish so they must be very well meaning 😁 This particular night the kids went for grilled chicken and i for the meat. Bengt had "choletas" which we learned afterwards was porkchops. Then we had milkshakes to go: chocolate, guanabana and pineapple. Sweet ending on a sweet day. Viggo fell asleep while i was helping him with his pyamas and Bengt followed him shortly after. Me and the girls layed awake and talked about dreams and about making a dream diary. At 10 pm we called it a night.

      The Wedding!

      July 14, 2018 in Ecuador ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

      So came the big wedding day of my little sister, who is the reason we went all the way to Ecuador in the first place: she is marrying her Daniel from Quito.

      We had had a quite troublesome night with the kids and got off to a bad start but the breakfast made it all up. The lady had made the effort to make freshly squeezed orange juice, omelette with ham, spinach and mushroom and she served it in a home made bread with maize and chia seeds. For the kids she made pancakes with maple sirup. Viggo slept to 10 so we took turns at the table but boy was it good!

      After that we switched to the hotel where the wedding took place later in the evening. They had a pool, which made the kids so happy!

      Things concerning the wedding, like the time to meet up, get the hair done or how long a wedding ceremony would was expected to be was, what we called, "ecuadorian fluent". Meaning five minuters could be anything from 15 minutes to 45 minutes. We were suppposed to get our rooms at noon but they were ready att 1:30 pm. And the girls were flower girls and were supposed to get their hair fixed and their time changed from 2:30 to 4 and then it was delayed another 30 mins. No worries, i get it, it's hard to keep things exact and at a wedding people work in a very complex time schedule but still, i notice that cultural difference regarding time. 😊

      Anyway, everything went smoothly and with just 45 minutes delay the wedding started. The merging between the secularized Sweden and chatolic Ecuador, two continents united. The ceremony was beautifully executed on the beach and at the point where Daniel had a chosen bible verse read and Martina had a personally written poem read, the sun broke free of the clouds and painted the sky in a rosey pink sunset. It was all together lovely!

      After the ceremony the food was delivered very efficiently and i detected a trace of passion fruit through all courses. We heard less speaches than in a normal Swedish wedding but on the contrary everyone joined in the dance. Old and young, shy and exhibitionist all in one great mixture. Tilde turned out to be the dancing queen of the party and rarely sat down at all.

      I put the two younger to bed at 11, Freja was complaining over headache and pain in her eye and Viggo went unwilling but fell asleap as soon as his head hit the pillow anyway. The rest of us headed back home an hour later. The dancing area and the music equipment was just outside our main bedroom and im surprised we managed to sleep at all. But we did. A good ending of a wonderful day. I quote Tilde: "Ecuadorians know how to party, this was the best day of my life!"

      Beach San Clemente, Ecuador

      January 30, 2017 in Ecuador ⋅ ☁️ 24 °C

      Nach 1,5 Stunden erreichen wir das Hotel mit dem Strand San Clemente. Wir werden freundlich mit einem Glas Orangensaft erwartet. Es schüttet wie aus Eimern, aber das hält uns nicht davon ab, bei 26 Grad Wasser- und Lufttemperatur im Pool und im Meer schwimmen zu gehen. Das kälteste Nass kommt von oben...Read more
