That’s enough for us to travel as a family in most South/Central Americana countries for 9 1/2 weeks.
But I tried not to think of it in that way. Instead I relished in the unparalleled daily animal interactions, the breathtaking, ever-changing landscapes, the intense, intrinsic learning that comes naturally in this type of environment, and the shouts of excitement from the kids with each new experience.
This time is was my turn to have tears in my eyes upon departure. I know I was being silly but I feel a connection to this archipelago and became sad thinking I may never return while at the same time knowing how lucky I have been to visit the Galapagos twice. The new memories of our family experiences have made it even dearer to my heart.
