The Galapagos is one of our bucket list items, but we weren’t sure if we could cross this one off on our trip since it’s not exactly in the backpacker budget. However, we were so close and budgets are meant to be broken so off we went!
We had no idea what to expect with the Galapagos; all we knew was that everyone said we had to go. Whatever expectations we had were absolutely blown out of the water. We are excited to share our experiences and pictures over the next few posts. We took a boat called the Floreana for 7 days with a fantastic variety of islands in the Galapagos and a great group of 7 people. The typical day involved checking out an island first thing in the morning followed by a snorkel adventure, then lunch and a siesta. The afternoons had the same itinerary, and we recovered from the day on the top deck watching the sunset with a cerveza.
We have some fabulous GoPro videos of life under the water which we will share as soon as we can edit them for you in a few months.
To kick things off, here are some photos of our boat and our group.
