Joined 8 years ago from Ecuador




Also follow me on:

After selling a small specialty bakery and three coffee shops that were owned and operated in South America, Alan decided to relocate to Florida in 1985.

After 30 years in Florida, Alan and his wife went forward with the lifelong plan to retire in Ecuador in 2014.

With interests in racquetball, building recumbent bikes, an avid coffee enthusiast, photography, talking, acting, speaking to anything or anyone who will stand still, 13 grandchildren, reading, and writing, after more than 20 years of accumulation it was decided it’s time to write about some of those experiences and keep them hidden no longer.

Alan currently focuses on writing, traveling, eating in and photographing Ecuador, to share in his first eBook, Ecuador In Your Pocket, on Face Book, You Tube, Vimeo, Hub Pages, Tumblr, www.diyrecumbentproject.com, and www.coffeekupchronicles.com.
