We are going to the Galapagos!

Going to the Galapagos was supposed to be the highlight of our trip. But the more we researched, the more it looks like a racket. We almost considered skipping it. However we have this urge to "check-things-off-the-list" even when we have low expectations. We are going ahead with it.

Picking a tour/cruise was not easy. I have a thing against large cruise ships, but I am afraid to end up on a smaller boat that I want to be off it the minute I step on. John loves boat rides, but may get queasy if seas are rough. As a compromise, we decided on a five-day tour in a 16-passenger catamaran (for stability & comfort) to the less touristy islands. While we will have TV, there will be no internet.

I know this has been on your list for a while! Great that you're finally going - have fun.

I'd hope your choice of less touristy islands will not cause you to bypass the Darwin Center http://tinyurl.com/3xs7sob Friend Tito Craige worked there for a year.

I'm happy that you are not skipping the Galapagos! It's not everywhere that you'll see such amazing creatures, like the blue-footed boobies and the cutest penquins. I'm already looking forward to see your photographs, which I"m sure will be amazing!
