    Galapagos / Isla Española - D8

    October 17, 2018 in Ecuador ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    And another full day trip! 🤗
    Today we went to the Isla Española. It's a beautiful island with thousands of naszca boobies, albatrosses and hawks and other birds. Our guide was amazing and gave us a perfect introduction about the birdlife. After an amazing lunch we went snorkeling with sea lions. If you turn and blow bubbles in the water they love it and really interact with you! That was the most amazing experience for me and I could have stayed there for at least another couple of hours. In the evening we went out for the last meal on these beautiful island. We don't want to leave this wonderful place!Read more

    Galapagos / San Cristobal - D7

    October 16, 2018 in Ecuador ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Today's tour was a good combination of snorkeling and a short hike to watch some rare birds. We went to Punta Pitt.
    First snorkeling was good but freezing cold so I was happy to get out of the water after the second round of snorkeling. Today we did not see as much as the day before but it still was fun. In the afternoon we went for a short hike and saw red- and blue-footed boobies. I am generally not the bird-watching type but it's different here. In addition Punta Pitt has an amazing landscape - rocky and not as flat as Santa Cruz or the main area on San Cristobal. All in all another perfect day!Read more

    Galapagos / San Cristobal - D6

    October 15, 2018 in Ecuador ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Today was the first of our three tours - kicker's rock and snorkeling with hammerheads! Despite the wildlife and landscape under water was amazing. And I survived my first snorkeling experience in deeper water. 💪🏻
    Hope to get underwater pictures from the other snorkelers soon!

    Galapagos / San Cristobal - D5

    October 14, 2018 in Ecuador ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Today we discovered the Highlands of San Cristobal with our host Pepe and his son-in-law (and maybe the future Govenor of the Galapagos). After seeing a Laguna in a volcano crater, watching the giant 🐢 eating and the beautiful Playa Chino (where we even saw two blue-footed boobies 😍) Pepe invited us to their family farm. We had a delicious lunch there and one of the best coffees that we have ever tasted and got a full tour of vegetables and plants they are growing (Papaya's, coffee, avocado,...). sad thing - today seems to be butcher's day for a few chickens there. At night our fridge was full of chicken in bags...😅😑Read more

    Galapagos / San Cristobal - D4

    October 13, 2018 in Ecuador ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    In the morning we had a boat transfer from Santa Cruz to San Cristobal. During that we saw a lot of birds and dolphins. Our host Pepe picked us up from the port and showed us around. He is an amazing host! San Cristobal is different than Santa Cruz with different plants and vegetation and also is the island of Hernandez's 😋 they all love to pose for pictures!!
    In the afternoon we went for a small hike to Playa Puenta Carola, went snorkeling with sea lions at Bahia Tijeretas and Playa Baquerizo. The sunset was beautiful with a delicious Endémica - craft beer, of course endemic, to the Galapagos. 🍻

    For the last day on this island we went to see Tortuga beach another time and actually spend a few hours there relaxing and taking pictures of baby sharks. After that we went to Las Grietas, which is a perfect spot for snorkeling and discovered a salt Plantage along the way. This island is very beautiful!Read more

    Day 2 was all about exploring the Highlands, the tortoise farm and the lava tunnels. Afterwards we went to two beautiful beaches - Playa de Garrapaterro and Galapagos beach with playa Mansa. Both beautiful and we also did a short kayak trip at Playa de Garrapaterro and saw pelicans and baby sharks...the islands are just stunningly beautiful!Read more

    Galapagos - Day 1

    October 10, 2018 in Ecuador ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    After our flight was delayed we arrived one day later at the beautiful islands of Galapagos. First day we visited the Darwin research center in Santa Cruz and explored Puerto Storage. The town has grown a lot over the last couple of years and also tourism rates are increasing every year. The town is cute and a lot of things to buy and see. But what is really stunning is the landscape and the animals that are not afraid of humans at all...Read more
