Galapagos by land!
Dont tell Jens - no im NOT really kissing him!
Never a dull moment in the Galapagos, when I wasn't having my picture taken with a giant tortoise of sea lion, I was snorkeling, kayaking, hiking, biking or horseback riding through the remarkable landscape. An excellent Galapagos adventure!
I was already in Quito for a travel show, so this was a fairly laid back day. We picked up my husband from the airport late at night and then rested up for the next day!
On to San Cristobal and hike Frigate Hill
We wake this morning later than originally planned 0 having been informed the night before that our flight to Galapagos was pushed back 2 hours. We head to the airport and meet our guide, Alfredo. he helps us with checking in our luggage and getting our tickets and going through security (which was much easier than any US flights, not having to …
La Galapaguera and Kayaking
This morning we woke to have breakfast - scrambled eggs and toast with guava jam, which was very good and then prepared for our hike in the morning.
We headed first for the highlands - past the "country homes" higher up and saw the ecosystem change before our eyes as we climbed. Oranges, papaya, corn, cattle, horses, all of this could …
Snorkeling Leon Dormido and Punta Pitt
This morning we wake early for breakfast and then gear up for a day on the ocean. We take off in the small boat and head first for Leon Dormido (or kicker Rock). Here we get out of the boat and begin to snorkel the wide channel between the two large rocks. This is a formation that plunges straight down for 30 meters or so, creating great …
Biking and Las Tintoreras
Early this morning we wake for our last breakfast on San Cristobal, then drive the 10- min to the airport. We check in and after finding out we were 100 pounds overweight with our luggage, we all go through our bags and pool together dirty clothes and things that can stay behind to make up the weight. Alfredo arranges for someone to send them onto …
Sierra Negra horseback adventure!
This morning we woke to the sound of waves breaking and heading to breakfast! After this we piled in to our bus for our horseback riding and hiking adventure. Little did I know there would be some “skiing” involved. We stopped one last time at a lagoon en route and see one lone flamingo (likely an injured one) hanging out in the middle …
Santa Cruz - my sick day
This morning I wake up feeling like death warmed over. My stomach is tied into knots and I do not feel as though I can leave the bathroom for more than 10 minutes. We have an early rise in order to catch the water taxi on to Santa Cruz. The crossing lasts 2 hours and 15 minutes, and all I can do the entire ride is look out on the horizon, breath …
Back to Quito
This morning we wake and have a leisurely breakfast before heading to take the water taxi back to the main dock. From here we drive an hour on a bus to the other side of the island, then a quick ferry across the bay to Baltra, and then another 15 minute drive to the airport. There are some shops set up outside the airport that we browse through …
This morning we wake very early to go to Mindo, a cloudforest area about 2 hours North and West of Quito. En route on the windy mountain road we stop for breakfast at a small restaurant with hummingbird feeders along the outside of the eaves. After a quick cup of coffee and some banana fried with cheese, we continue on and reach this small town. …
