We were excited to dust off the passports & head out for more international adventure
What we discovered…..
Ecuador is on the ball
The biggest city (& gateway to the Galapagos) was far more refined than I expected
Nicer roads, more big box retailers & multi-national brands than expected
And re-using too….bottle trash can
2L Bottle planters
Adventure travel is FAB
Aboard a National Geographic boat, there was loads of action
The kids got to learn how to drive one
(Q demonstrating old school sugar cane juice making)
With 6 am wake up calls & action all day, by 9:00pm the boat was like this….
And nap time became a necessary norm
(Zoe loved sharing a room with Nana & Gramps)
The scenery was amazing
Xavier is an animal whisperer
Has no problem with iguana proximity...
Attracted the sea lions….
Befriended the Blue Footed Boobies
Animals show all
3 sets of giant tortoises were 'getting busy' during our visit.
Lots of grunting & one male full on drooling on his mate's head
Giant turtles = giant poop…..as big as Logan's foot!
The week absolutely flew by - we were sad to say goodbye
Thanks N&G for the foresight that Galapagos would be so fab
Here's to family adventures!
