Airline Tickets Purchased

Last night after seeing airline fares rising for the flight from Atlanta to Quito, and having most of our paperwork either gathered or in the process of being completed, we decided to purchase our tickets. We saved $350 by flying from Atlanta to Guayaquill on a non-stop Delta flight. Fares had gone up over $100 per ticket, so when we found this offer we took the plunge. We leave Atlanta on July 11 at 5:45PM and arrive Guayaquill at 10:45PM, and made hotel reservations at the Hampton Inn for one night in Guayaquill. We will take a 3.5 hours van service to Cuenca the next day, and begin the task of finding an apartment/house.

We had only told family of our plans to move until the last couple of weeks, and begun telling friends, and my boss with the soccer club that I will not be back to coach next year. Besides our soccer activities and connections we do not have any close friends in Decatur, so leaving friends is not that hard for the three of us. It will be hard to leave our daughters behind, and our pets, but we will hopefully see them at Christmas in Cuenca.
