What Electronics and (other items) Should You Pack in Suitcase to Ecuador?

Most of our long time readers know that we did not ship anything in a container to Ecuador and we are still very happy we did not go through the trouble. We packed only two suitcases and two carry-ons each. If we had to do it all over again, Frank would have packed some of his "DEWALT" tools, and Angie would have packed more clothing, (especially jeans and pants) and a couple more pairs of good walking tennis shoes. We hope this video will help you out a bit when it comes to packing your suitcases; whether you're just staying three months or moving here for good, some of these items are a must have. Remember, everything cost more here!

We Explore 12 Exotic and Tropical Fruits of (Cuenca Ecuador) South America!

Most of the fruits in this video are ones that we never heard of or knew they existed until we moved to Cuenca Ecuador. It has been a lot of fun trying out all of the different fruits that Ecuador has to offer because we love fruit and eat a lot of it. Most of these fruits grow right here in Ecuador and so you will see them for sell at most grocery stores and Mercados for decent prices.

Flight from US: Seattle to Guayaquil via Chicago and Panama!

We visited my mom this year in April in the NW. It took a whole day (25 hours) to get to our destination in the states and 26 hours to come home back to Cuenca. VERY long layovers. This is some of our landings at the airports. Copa Airlines was great; they fed us two meals on the long flights!!
