Week 32 & 33 - Heading to the Pacific


We got up and rode out of Pelileo with Steve, following the PanAm highway to Riobamba. We then had to say our farewell's as Steve (motorcycle.diarrheas) needed to head South and we were heading to the coast. It had been an absolute pleasure riding for the last week with Steve.

We found a place to stay on good old iOverlander called Hostal Marquez.
