I decided to travel with OG on their Ecuador: Food Revolutions trip as I had gone with them to Guatemala the year before and loved every minute of it. Their programs have the perfect balance of organized activities and free time. All the participants on the trip are coming in with the same mindset: to make friends, memories, and experience something completely new.
I really enjoy the format of OG trips, you get to be a tourist one day, work on a farm the next and then hike up a volcano the day after that. Having experienced a few trips like these I have started to love this new style of travel. Experiencing the outdoors, other countries' cultures and traditions all while forming bonds with people who were strangers the week before.
