The Bucketlist

People and places that have made Ecuador home for a wandering soul from the States for the last two years.

Web Site:

This is the blog of Jon, a passionate wandering soul who left the confines of the United State to find adventure in Ecuador two years ago.

I have worked in hostels, as a guide, and in a few good bars and restaurants since I arrived here. I now have left those havens and am part of a graphic design team as well as helping out good people doing cool things in the travel business here.

The information that I put here is about the people that I have found that have made the places that I have been a different, once in a lifetime experience. Anyone can travel, the people and resources I write about here are for those who want to travel well in Ecuador!

Please contact me at with questions about the people and programs that are found on this site.
