Where is Michaela Wandering?

This summer I will be in a small town in Ecuador working on the development of ‘un centro de interpretación patrimonial natural y cultural shuar’ (essentially, a center for the interpretation of the surrounding natural and cultural heritage). At this point, I don’t know quite where I’m living and what all the logistics of my project are. While I’m pretty nervous, I am also incredibly excited!

Then, when I get back from Ecuador, I have a few week sabbatical in the states and then I’m headed off to Madrid, Spain for the fall! I will be studying at la Universidad Antonio de Nebrija and taking weekend trips around Spain.

Check back for stories, photos, and reflections on both trips!

  1. Wow. And I thought that I like to travel! Your trip sounds amazing; are you posting pics?

    • I feel very fortunate to have these opportunities to travel! It has been so great, and for me has really driven home how much I want to be physically close to my family + friends. Funny how travel does that!

      Yes, photos are scattered throughout the blog posts! I should consolidate them all into a single page though – – so glad your comment made me think of doing that, that’s a great idea!

      • thanks. and, i understand about wanting to stick to your roots while travelling. my husband and i are taking a 7 month road trip in about a month and a half and – the family ties thing did cause me to reconsider initially… but not for long. enjoy it while you can! there will be time to stay in one place later. 🙂

  2. Just stumbled upon your blog, I can’t wait to hear more about your travels! I did the reverse order a few years ago: Bilbao, Spain for 4 months, Stateside for 2 months, and then Ecuador for 6 months. I absolutely LOVED my time in Ecuador, so I know you will, too 🙂 I studied at Universidad Central 3 days a week and spent the other half of each week living in Otavalo. Enjoy it while you’re there – the time will fly by too quickly!
