The Galápagos Islands are one of this world’s most famous, and alluring, wildlife destinations. Ever since Charles Darwin visited the islands and documented the diversity of wildlife and wrote his theory of Evolution, people have been flocking to the islands to get a first-hand look at this amazing ecosystem. Not only do the Galápagos Islands have a staggering array of marine wildlife in its waters, but there are also a wide variety of birds, reptiles, and mammals found on the islands themselves.
Avid traveler and photographer who loves to see new places, meet new people, and experience new things. There is so much this world can teach us, we just need to explore!
Every year, hundreds of thousands of people flock to the Galápagos Islands to see the amazing and diverse wildlife that lives in the waters off their shores. There is no better way to get an appreciation for the diverse and amazing wildlife that call the Galápagos Island their home than to get in the water and interact with this wildlife. From the giant Whale sharks that flock to the outer islands in droves, to the amazingly large schools of hammerhead sharks, to the fun and playful Galápagos sea lions that can be found on and around the islands in abundance, there is no place quite like the Galápagos Islands for taking a snorkeling or scuba diving adventure.
The Galápagos Islands are an amazing place that draws photographers from around the world each year to capture its amazing landscapes and wildlife. However, as beautiful as the Galápagos Islands are, they can also be fairly challenging to capture in photographs. The weather, rocking boats, and the remoteness of the islands are just some of the many challenges that photographers face when they travel to the Galápagos.
Because the Galápagos is such an important and fragile ecosystem, there are many protections in place to prevent the ecosystem from getting spoiled. This is a good thing, as it is very important for us to preserve this beautiful place. However, it does mean that more planning needs to go into preparing a trip to the Galápagos then other destinations you might decide to visit.
Today we really got to explore Broadway, which was a ton of fun. We checked out the bar and restaurants of Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryant, and Jason Aldean. I was amazed at how much live music is playing in these bars. Below are just some of the pictures I took that show what a fun atmosphere Broadway in Nashville is.
Once we were ready to hit the town, we started our adventure in the neighborhood known as the Gulch. In case you aren’t familiar with this neighborhood, it is the art district of Nashville, much like the Uptown area of Minneapolis, the Soho area of New York, or the East side of Milwaukee.
It’s time to hit the road again! Tonight I will be flying to Nashville for my next round of adventures. I am really excited about this trip as I have wanted to explore Nashville for quite some time. It is such an underrated travel destination in the United States.
The Galápagos Islands is as unique of a destination as it is beautiful and with that uniqueness are some challenges when it comes to packing for your trip. Being an island chain without a large population, especially on some of the smaller islands, it can be quite difficult to find things if you forget to bring something. For that reason, you will want to make sure you are extra prepared when it comes to packing.
In this article, I hope to dispel some of the more common misconceptions about visiting the United States, as well as provide you with some tips for how to prepare for your first visit state-side (that’s what we Americans call home). As always, if you have any thoughts or opinions on what travelers should know before visiting the United States for the first time, I would absolutely love to have you comment below. Any and all feedback is helpful for other travelers! However, please no politicals comments.
We have had some incredible luck with weather on this trip, but today that luck ran out to an extent. We were scheduled to begin our tours at 8am this morning, with stops at the Charles Darwin Research Center in the morning and trips to the Santa Cruz highlands and a snorkeling adventure in the afternoon.
