It seems to me that everyone gushes about the Galapagos and that everyone who has not been has these islands at or near the top of their travel wishlist. Are the blue-footed boobies really that cute, do the sea lions really take time out of their busy schedules to play with the human interlopers, do hammerhead sharks really ply these equatorial waters and what is with the tortoise fetish? I'd always had some idle curiousity with regard to the Galapagos, but it was never a dream trip. Becky, on the other hand, let's just say that the prospect of a week on a yacht combined with the opportunity to view dozens of endemic Galapagos birds....well, that is as close to paradise as she could imagine. So off we went. And I must say that I am truly a convert to the cult of the Galapagos. It is everything they say it is, and more.
The waved albatross is an amazing creature. It is a pelagic bird which means that it lives mostly at sea far from land.... more travel advice
Everyone seems to enjoy a sunset, so here it is in all its equatorial glory. Actually, we didn't get too many nice... more travel advice
