Mother-Daughter trip to Galapagos and Ecuador
Hanging out in the sand with some wildlife
Galapagos Multisport and a family vacation with Betty, our Ecuador coordinator!
After flying all day – we have finally arrived into Quito! Betty was waiting with a smile for us at the airport exit and her husband Marcelo drove us to the Eugenia, our home for many of our nights in Quito. The hotel is beautiful, the staff so nice and friendly, and our room is so cute. We scrambled to repack for the Galapagos and packed a …
This morning we woke and had a delicious breakfast at the hotel. We walked around our hotel, just a few blocks – enough to stretch our legs after a long day of flying. We met Nancy and Scott on the steps of our hotel, and Betty picked us all up to take us to the airport for our flight to the Galapagos. Fabricio, our guide, met us at the …
Our first tortioses!
We drove for almost an hour this morning to get to Galapaguero where we got to view our first giant tortoises! They are really incredible. Slow as you can imagine, but also really fascinating looking. I cannot believe that they are able to get themselves around, albeit slow, but they get around nonetheless. There were also some young tortoises in …
Snorkeling in the Galapagos
This morning we set off on a boat for a full day of snorkeling. What a fun day! I was glad that we had the day before to get used to snorkeling, because we had a lot of snorkeling to do today. Our first stop, we snorkeled off the back of the boat, and stayed pretty near the line of lava rocks. We saw so many different fish right away! A few …
We woke early this morning to catch our little 12-seater flight to Isabela. After we landed we headed to our hotel and then off to get our bikes for our next adventure. Unfortunately, this was the most we have seen the sun, and it was a pretty hot bike ride. But the ride was beautiful! We saw lots of marine iguanas along the way. We rode next to …
Horseback riding and hiking on a volcano
This morning we loaded up in a van to head up towards Sierra Negra volcano, where we met our pack of horses. It was pouring this down rain and the trail was incredibly muddy, but the horses didn’t seem to mind. We rode for several miles through a muddy trail, then finally came to a spot where we al got to run the horses a little. No one in …
Last day in Galapagos
This morning we got on a fast boat to take us the two hours to Santa Cruz Island and Puerto Ayora. Even with the Dramamine and sitting in the fresh air, I managed to get a little sick, but I made it. After getting here, we dropped our stuff off and headed to the Charles Darwin Research Station (we get no breaks on this trip!). After seeing …
Our last morning in the Galapagos, but unfortunately, we didn’t have much time to do anything. We headed across the island where we caught the short ferry to Baltra, then our bus to the airport. I was amazed how well Fabricio kept us all together, and managed our entire luggage as well. The airport was pretty chaotic, but he just took care …
Betty and her husband picked us up this morning with their kids for our weekend away with the family. Mateo and Maria Paula were awfully shy, and wouldn’t speak to us for the first hour or so, but Paula eventually warmed up to us, and I was able to practice Spanish with her. She is learning English, so it was fun for both of us to practice. …
