Olón Ecuador VLOG
We just finished our first full week of quarantine here in Olón Ecuador. We’ve been staying busy with work so the time is going by quickly, but we’re definitely have good and bad days.
I was able to launch Mini from our front porch this morning and she captured a truly surreal sight: an empty beach in Olón Ecuador during high season.
Several new government issued safety measures are going into effect tomorrow morning so we needed to go to Montañita to pay our Claro bill and get some cash from the ATM. We’re concerned that we won’t be able to go between Olón and Montañita once the new isolation protocol is in effect, and since there’s no longer an ATM in Olón, we were a bit concerned.
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.
Join us as we share a drone and walking tour of Las Núñez, a tiny little beach town on Ecuador’s south central coast.
We were taking a short 50 cent bus ride from Olón to Montañita Ecuador when our pocket got picked and we lost an iPhone worth several hundred dollars.
This is our first day in the life video from Olón, our new pueblito on the coast of Ecuador. We go for a couple walks on the beach, show you the mercados, walk around town, and share the incredible sunset from our new drone.
Amelia And JP are US American expats living our unconventional life in Ecuador. We enjoy sharing our daily lives, travel adventures, expat info from our small South American country so you can see what life is really like outside the hamster wheel.
