Now I have been at a hostal called Izhcayluma in southern part of Ecuador for seven days. It is located nearby a town called Vilcabamba in the province of Loja. Not so far away from Peru! However, this place is paaaradise... absolutely amazing! The location among the mountains in the nature is absolutely beautiful, and they offer free yoga-clases every morning, hammocks everywhere, and there is even a swimming pool! Just outside the hostel they also have different hiking tours, all from 20 minutes to 7 hours... They do also have a restaurant with an incredible view, furthermore they do also offer massage, reiki healing, and other treatments. A few days ago I had a full body massage and reiki healing for two hours (my first time getting a massage!) and afterwards I felt like a new human being! Oh my gaaad, it was so lovely. Thinking about having another massage actually hehehe.... just because I can!
Today I also went to an air-yoga class. That was so cool! You kind of do things and yoga positions in a special yoga-hammock-kind-of, and it was so fun hanging upside down and doing stuff! A little bit scary, a little bit painful, and an awesome workout. Defenetily something I would love to continue doing!
Tomorrow is the plan to go for a horseride... for 7 hours in a national park. It´s gonna be me, another lady and a guide, and we are gonna ride, do some hiking, visit some waterfall (maybe go for a swim) and have a little lunch somewhere. I am really looking forward to experience Ecuador on a horseback!
