travel, destination, Galapagos

If money is of no consideration, I’d probably pack our bags now + tag my little man along + leave in one of those Galapagos Cruises, to check out the beautiful + idyllic archipelago of Galapagos, one perfect summer destination. It will probably be one great adventure to trod in the sand + stones where Charles Darwin once made his trail, exploring the numerous islands + its inhabitants. I will probably have a hard time deciding which of the its numerous islands, beginning with the 14 main ones, to head to first. I will just probably leave it all up to the tour guide to decide which among Baltra, Bartholomew, Darwin {which was named after the famed Charles Darwin, who visited the islands all those many years ago}, Albemarle, Narborough or Tower Islands to visit first.

Traversing the Galapagos National Park, which was recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1978 + home to a vast selection of birds, fishes + other endemic {or found only in the islands} species will be one great summer adventure. I will probably be left in awe of all the grandeur + majestic site before me. + I bet my little meanderer will also have the time of his life.
