Floreana & the 4th of July: Galapagos Day 8

Embarking on our final tour, we were pros and took seats on the lower level. Two hours later, we were on the coast of Floreana snorkeling. The water was ice cold and I found myself consciously trying to regulate my breathing. However, the lava flows were worth the effort. They looked like fingers stretching into… Continue reading Floreana & the 4th of July: Galapagos Day 8

Puerto Ayora: Galapagos Day 7

We played hide and seek around the pool area today. It was too cold to get in the pool, but we both just felt like sticking close to home base and relaxing. Later in the afternoon, I convinced Fierce to go shopping. I wanted to get a mug for my Dad because it is tradition.… Continue reading Puerto Ayora: Galapagos Day 7

Isabella Island Tour: Galapagos Day 6

Huddled under our soaked towels in the mother and child pose, the boat went up with the swells of the Pacific and back down pelting us with its sprays. We had made the unfortunate decision to sit on the top deck seats. The back rest was only four inches tall so I had a two… Continue reading Isabella Island Tour: Galapagos Day 6

Tortuga Bay & Pizza: Galapagos Day 5

Well, I said we would return and we did. We slept in and then made out way to Tortuga Bay. We jumped waves, jumped in waves (because to Fierce there is a difference) and let the waves roll over us. We also made sand castles and did sand races. The crabs ran away from us… Continue reading Tortuga Bay & Pizza: Galapagos Day 5

Santa Cruz Highlands: Galapagos Day 4

Roosters are up, we’re up! Breakfast was wonderful yet again. They served a corn tortilla with the eggs today. Fierce wanted to ask for syrup so I had him come with me as I tried to request it in broken Spanish. In the end, we found out syrup is “Maple” in Spanish. We learned a… Continue reading Santa Cruz Highlands: Galapagos Day 4

Charles Darwin Research Center & Las Grietas: Galapagos Day 3

I told Fierce we could have a down day so we slept in until 7am because honestly it’s really hard to ignore the roosters. It gave us time to grab an early breakfast at our hotel. I had a cup of coffee and he chilled while playing a Spanish game. He was also really excited… Continue reading Charles Darwin Research Center & Las Grietas: Galapagos Day 3

Pre-Galapagos

Smiles, relief, excitement…I had just booked flights to the Galapagos! After getting an entire trip cancelled last fall due to the pandemic, I was happy to be able to try travelling again. I chose this destination because it allowed 3 days for a CPR test into Ecuador and 4 days into the Galapagos. This gave… Continue reading Pre-Galapagos

Tortuga Bay – Galapagos Day 1

I started my day with a massive headache. However, after a lovely breakfast I was good as new. The weather was chilly and cloudy, but I thought going to the beach was still a good idea. I had read that it was only a 15 minute walk from my hotel, but we had done a… Continue reading Tortuga Bay – Galapagos Day 1
