Bon Voyage Mate

My 16 year old son, Will, is flying to Ecuador in the early hours of tomorrow. Together with 8 other students and 2 teachers from The King’s School and an experienced rep. from Camre Cymru he will spend the best part of 4 weeks on an expedition. After their flight to Quito they move on to Quilatoa and then Pasachoa where they will trek to a height of 4,200 metres and sleep in a (hopefully) extinct volcano.

The next stage of the trip is to work on a project helping the Tsachilla people in the Bua community, they will live with the community and hopefully learn something about their life and about themselves too. This work has been organised by the Yanapuma Foundation.

The last few days are spent on a jungle trek and some white water rafting.

They have raised a lot of the funds needed for this trip themselves (for which parents are very grateful) and whilst away they will be responsible for the budgets, accommodation and arranging transport.

Should be a life altering trip – have a great time folks.
