Ecuador re-visited

I was all set for my return trip to Ecuador & to have a wonderful cruise in the Galapagos Islands in February. But unfortunately I had some bad news the day after I arrived in Quito I had to fly back to UK.
The exciting news is that in 2 weeks time I am going back to Ecuador & will also have a really special treat as I am having a 8 day / 7 night cruise on the newest boat sailing around the Galapagos Islands – the Yacht la Pinta www.yachtlapinta.com
I cannot wait!!. As it is always a good idea to arrive in Ecuador at least 2 days before the cruise I have time to visit the hot springs @ Papallacta & visit the hotel there. As if my trip was not already perfect I am also having a night @ the Finch Bay Hotel in Galapagos before my cruise starts..
I am flying with American Airlines, so it is a bit of a pain going through Miami but it does give me 2 duty free opportunities in both directions, so every cloud has a silver lining!! Also as I have traveled with American quite frequently I have enough miles to come back Miami to London in Business Class but of course they are not confirming that to me now as I guess they want to try & sell the seats @ the hugely expensive full price first!! Fingers crossed for my upgrade though as that would be an amazing end to what is going to be a wonderful trip.
I will obviously be adding a new blog after this trip, so watch this space!
