The Galapagos

The Galapagos Islands are an amazing destination that you have to place on your “bucket list”.

We enjoyed a wonderful week on the islands of The Galapagos, traveling between each on a small speedboat. Most tourists spend their nights aboard luxury cruise ships, but we opted for small on-land hotels that allowed for dinner in town and some mingling with the local population.

I recommend the latter as there are some wonderful opportunities for great food and drink in the many restaurants in the larger towns.

It is one thing to see these animals in a zoo, it is entirely different seeing them in their own environment. Yet another way to put us in “our place”. I have come away realizing how small of an insignificant speck we really are on this earth.
