Hey everyone. I got back from South America at the end of last week and brought home an aweful cold. I think just about everyone on the trip got a cold at one point or another. I spent the weekend recovering.
However, my cold did not diminish the fact that the trip was far more than I expected. WOW is all I can say. I've started putting together some short travelogues to give you a glimpse into the many wonderful and magical experiences we had. Keep an eye out for these videos in the coming days - weeks.
Our first island in the Galapagos was the tiny island of Bartolome. There was little vegetation on it - mostly rock - NO trees at all. It was like a moon scape - like something from another planet. After our hike to the top of the volcano, we had time to swim and snorkel on the Bartolome beach.
Speaking of something from another planet - the image above was one of my favorites from our first day: Justin, the creature from the Bartolome lagoon.
