We're thinking we might like to spend a winter in Ecuador.
Yes, the Ecuador in South America! I'm not talking about anytime soon, but it will be on the top of the list when we're ready to do a winter outside of North America.
Everything I read says that if you live a frugal lifestyle, a couple can do just fine in Ecuador for $800 per month. Oddly enough, their currency is the US dollar, so right now it's about par with the Canadian dollar. A decent apartment can be had for $250 a month. A case of beer for $9.00. A meal for two in a restaurant with wine for $20.
For a small country, Ecuador has everything...a perfect climate because it's located on the equator, miles of beautiful Pacific beaches, and the fantastic Andes mountain range.
Anyhow, we can't do this while we still have Whiskey. And she's only 14 so hopefully she'll be around for a few years yet!
