The break last week was because I went on holiday with Hiltrun. We started in the Andes in Ecuador and climbed to 4500 m (14,800 ft – higher than Mt Cook ) where I got altitude sickness. Then we went to the Galapagos Islands and swam with turtles and sea lions. After that we had a day in Guayaquil on the Ecuadorian coast and a day in Santiago, Chile. I arrived home yesterday afternoon. It was wonderful!
