Sharing my travel experiences on BoutiQuito's comfy Sofa

Sharing travel experiences and wine on BoutiQuito’s comfy Sofa

On my first evening at BoutiQuito Hostel, another guest was drinking wine in the common area, and offered me a glass.

He had just got to Quito from the USA, and planned to do the route through South America that I have taken, but in reverse, including going through Bolivia and Argentina as I did two years ago. He wanted to know about every place I had been to, as he did not have a strict plan and wanted to choose his destinations based on the recommendations of other travellers.

I gave him lots of advice and hostel recommendations, and showed him photos of Peru.

He had been to Colombia before, where I plan to go next, and he told me where to stay in every city he had visited, and suggested how long I should aim to stay in each place. It was great to share stories and advise on BoutiQuito’s comfy sofa.
