Extending tourist visa in Ecuador

By | April 11th, 2017|Ecuador, travel|

I extended my Ecuador tourist visa in Ibarra. There is a new option of 90 days extension introduced in February 2017. Given the fact that is a smaller city and everything s 5-10 minutes away [...]

Back to Ibarra

By | April 9th, 2017|Ecuador|

We crossed the border from Peru and by next day late evening we arrived to Ibarra. It was a long shot but the Ecuadorian roads are getting better and better and driving through the country [...]

Guatape was pretty crowded today, it's long weekend again. It was long weekend 7 days ago as well. Looks like Colombia is averaging two long weekends per month. Managed to shoot photos that look like [...]
