1. Mashpi: A cocoon in the clouds in Ecuador´s biodiverse Andean cloudforest

    A mere three hour's drive west of Quito, Mashpi Lodge lies within a private reserve that protects a small piece of one of the world's most important biodiversity hotspots for future generations and the enjoyment of sophisticated and inquisitive travellers to Ecuador. Mashpi Lodge, at 950 metres (3,116 ft) above sea level on the western slopes of the Andes, received its first guests in April 2012.

  3. I recently got invited to visit the Galapagos islands in Ecuador. Just before returning home I called my wife, Katie to tell her about it. A tale of trying quasi-adventurous things, Darwin marrying his cousin and riding a tortoise and a kid that can do 1000 kick-ups, among other things.

    Note: No tortoises we ridden during the making of this film.
