Travel Journal (9/10/2018): Sea Turtles and Tortoises

Days like today are exactly what we had in mind when we booked our trip to the Galápagos Islands. Swimming with some of this islands most iconic animals was an absolute joy and an experience that none of us will soon forget. Same can be said of visiting the Giant Tortoises the Galápagos Islands are known for. Seeing these gentle giants is an experience that will stick with us forever.

Travel Journal (9/8/2018): Arriving in the Galápagos

We spent the afternoon exploring Puerto Ayora, which was very neat. They had some really cool shops to explore and some nice restaurants to eat at. We ate lunch at a little restaurant and then did some shopping and took some pictures. We got to see a lady cleaning some freshly caught fish and a sea lion waiting beside here ready to gobble up the scraps. That was really neat to see.

Travel Journal (9/6/2018): Our Machu Picchu Adventure

The past few days have been one of the most amazing adventures I have had traveling.  I would say it ranks right up there with our safari adventures in Tanzania.  I don’t think I can find the words that accurately reflect how amazing Peru has been.

The city of Cusco is now one of my favorite cities I have visited.  It is such an amazing city.   After spending the day exploring the city, which I wrote about in yesterday’s journal entry, we got up very early today to begin our adventure of exploring Machu Picchu.

Enjoy our adventures? Please spread the word :)
