Ecuador Expedition

After 18 months of planning and fundraising the Ecuador expedition groups left from Glasgow Airport for Quito on Saturday (25 June) afternoon.  Having packed their rucksacks for what they hoped would be the last time they spent the morning having their kit checked by Outlook Expeditions to make sure that they had not forgotten any essentials (ie passports etc) and did not have any luxury items with them!  Hairdryers and tongs don’t work very well in the Amazon jungle!

After getting the all clear, being given their tents, cooking stoves and mosquito nets (!) they all headed off to the airport.  Being true backpackers they settled themselves on the floor of the departure lounge and amused themselves until check-in opened.

After checking in they were finally off on their long awaited adventure!
