A Travellerspoint blog

Brought down by a microscopic foe!

Throughout our travels we have each struggled occasionally with an upset stomach or some other temporary unpleasantness. But never have the three of us all been violently sick at the same time...until now. We are contributing this event to some sno-cones made with water of questionable provenance, but I guess we will never really know. Anyway, after two days of misery we absolutely had to get out of the apartment we were renting in Playas but we just couldn't seem to muster any enthusiasm for the rest of the trip. So while Ecuador was lovely and I am so glad I finally made it South America, we decided to cut the trip short and head on back. Wimpy, I know, but I'm ok with that. Thanks for following us...see you next time we hit the road :)

So sorry that you had to cancel. When Paulette told me that you were coming home, I immediately thought, "Those damn spiders!"
I hope you feel better soon, and have a complete recovery. Dorothy

After what I read of your illness, I was ready to speed you to the nearest ER when you got off the plane. Happy to have you home, safe and sound! I miss my kids when they're gone....but it's always such fun traveling vicariously through your wonderful blog! xoxoxo

Well, poop! Sorry your adventure took such an abrupt turn, but happy to hear there are no lingering effects.
