Each day I found myself amazed, excited, inspired, humbled, filled with a sense of wonder, or all of these! A fantastic vacation to Old City Quito, Sacha Lodge in the Amazon, Otovalo area, and the Galápagos onboard the Millenium.

How do you sum up a trip to the Galapagos? A birders paradise? A zoo without cages? Neither of the previous statements do Darwins Islands any justice. The Flamingo I, our vessel for the week, took us on an expedition to see and experience as much of the Galapagos as we possible could.
