Cuenca Ecuador VLOG
We’ve been wanting to experience this adventure since we moved to Ecuador!
We went to La Libertad Ecuador to take care of some banking tasks and while we were there, we took a walk on the Malecón, stopped by a mercado and went shopping for groceries at Mi Comisariato in Ballenita on the way back to Olón.
Wow! This is our 200th VLOG! And what better way to celebrate than showing Amelia learning how to surf just a couple weeks before the world went on lockdown!
We filmed this yesterday in Olón and Montañita Ecuador as we went about our normal daily lives during the Coronavirus pandemic. A lot has happened since then, including Ecuador closing its borders. We’ll share an update video on the Coronavirus in Ecuador tomorrow. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy this little distraction.
We’ve been getting lots of questions about why we left Cuenca and why we chose Olón Ecuador over Salinas or any of the other lower altitude cities in Ecuador. In this video, we an answer those questions as we walk around (and a fly over) Olón.
We’re very excited to announce the launch of our merch store with our unique Unconventional designs! We have a whole line of clothes for men, women, kids and babies, and we have other cool stuff like hats, mugs, bags and phone cases.
If your dream is to live abroad and work from anywhere, these two young unconventional digital nomads can help and inspire you!
We give you a room-by-room tour of our condo in Olón Ecuador and share the cost of rent. We also share our first drone footage of Olón and the beautiful coast of Ecuador!
We really didn’t want to record this video, but we feel like the CuencaHighLife article titled, “Paradise Indian Restaurant offers a happy landing for Cuenca diners as well as its owners,” has done reputational harm to us and our YouTube Channel so we couldn’t afford to let it go unanswered.
We’re Amelia And JP, American expats from the U.S. living our unconventional life in Ecuador. We share things like cost of living, safety info, property & neighborhood tours, lessons learned, things to do, ugly truths, city comparisons, etc. so you know what it’s REALLY like to live in Ecuador.
