EV10GB130317: Deluxe Galapagos 10 day Northern Islands - Mar

Postby schraderrj » Tue Mar 05, 2013 1:34 am

Hi everyone, I am a late signup (as a single) for the 10 day G8 Galapagos cruise starting on March 17th. I got a very late start planning/preparing for this last minute trip but I'm looking forward to the Galapagos and meeting all of my fellow travelers. I will be arriving in Quito on March 14th and hope to do some sightseeing in/around Quito. Is anyone else who is signed up for trip going to arrive early in Quito who might want to do some sight seeing together? If so, let me know. Even if you are not arriving early, I'd love to find out who my travel mates will me!

Hey Bob Dean again when are you arriving in Quito? I am travelling Vancouver Houston and then Houston to Quito on United leaving Houston at 4:15 just wondering if you are on the same flight?
Cheers Dean

Hey Dean, yes, I am on your same United flight on Thur to Quito. I don't arrive in Houston till 3:00 pm so hopefully my flight is not late. Have you made any transfer arrangements yet from the Quito airport to your hotel? G Adven told me to just hail a taxi at the airport but I'm a little leary about doing that. Thought about trying to schedule the transfer online with someone. Where are you staying Thur-Sat? I couldn't get a room at the Colon for Thur nite so I'm staying at another hotel a couple blocks away and then transferring to the Colon sometime on Friday. Do you know if there is a way to exchange phone numbers on this forum without their being made public for all to see? It would be a lot easier to communicate with each other by phone than thru this forum.

Dean, sounds good. I'll see you at the gate, hopefully before they start boarding. I'll probably have either a Cardinals or Alabama hat on. Later, Bob

Dean, how/with whom did you arrange for your mtn biking trip? G Aven told me to go thru the hotel when I get there to arrange for tours/hiking/etc but I'm afraid that I won't be able to set anything up that quickly, especially for Friday. I would really like to go to Cotopaxi Nat'l Park to do some hiking and or other stuff.
