The majority of the Group travelled from Jersey on the 14th November, via Gatwick, Heathrow & Madrid that day, leaving Madrid just after midnight & onto Quito overnight. It was originally intended that they then stay a day in Quito & onto the rain forest the following day (7 hours by bus). However something of a cock up meant a change so that they were to go straight from the airport to the rain forest. Not for me I’m afraid so I went alone on the 13th, overnight at the excellent Sofitel at terminal 5, a good meal at Verve restaurant & onto Miami the following day. Yippee we’re off!
