After stepping off the boat in the Galapagos, we needed a place to rest our salty bones, a place we could call our ever-new home for a couple of days before jetting off once more and AirBnb again provided the answer, this time offereing up an incredible farm! 60 minutes from the Quito airport, we came to put down our now world-weary luggage in the perfect place…
