After leaving the hotel at 3 AM for the airport, checking in, going through customs, waiting in the freezing cold departure lounge I finally boarded the plane. We began to taxi and turned back to another gate, Uh Oh! That's not right. What did we forget? Well to make a long story short, our plane was broken, they could not fix it and had to fly a part in from Miami that night. After waiting in line to get our new tickets etc, we were put up at very nice hotels, I stayed at the Radisson Royal Quito Hotel. Unfortunately I was too tired to enjoy my extra day in Ecuador.
But although the ending was a bit nerve wracking (definitely not the fault of Adventure Life) the entire trip was amazing. I saw so many unique animals and landscapes and did so many fun things. Even now, more than a year after my trip I am still in awe and so enthusiastic to tell the story of my trip. There are so many interesting places to see in this world and Galapagos is definitely one of them. I am very glad I had the chance to make this trip. I am even contemplating going back in 2011. I'd like to try a cruise during the wet season to see some more and different aspects of the islands. Of course I'll be going with Adventure Life again.
