Journey to the Galapagos Islands (Podcast)


Travel to the Galapagos Islands (Podcast) - Amateur Traveler

Hear about journey to the Galapagos Islands as Chris Christensen, the Newbie Traveler himself, talks a few live-aboard cruise of the Galapagos Islands on Quasar Expeditions M/V Evolution.

The Galapagos is a singular vacation spot. Folks describe different locations because the ‘Galapagos of Mexico or the Galapagos of another place’ however the Galapagos doesn’t attempt to evaluate itself to anyplace else. This can be a must-see vacation spot for individuals who desire a trip to see wildlife. Folks can inform you how the wildlife right here is totally different as a result of it doesn’t worry people however till you might be standing by an enormous tortoise, strolling by a booby nesting floor, or swimming with sea turtles and sea lions, it’s onerous to grasp what that actually means.

This can be a place the place you come to see big tortoises or iguanas, however it’s also a spot to see attention-grabbing hen species like Nasca boobies, blue-footed boobies, and red-footed boobies. However it’s also a spot to expertise the islands below the water. Have you ever swum with turtles, penguins, and sharks… on the identical day? Have you ever had sea lions swim circles round you?

One of the simplest ways to expertise the Galapagos Islands is on a live-aboard boat. I used to be lucky sufficient to be invited by award-winning Quasar Expeditions to discover the Galapagos on their M/V Evolution as their visitor (they paid). This 32 passenger boat is among the bigger boats that explores the Galapagos. 

I describe a one-week itinerary to the jap islands within the Galapagos together with stops at: San Cristóbal Island,  South Plaza Island, Santa Cruz Island, Mosquera Island, Sombrero Chino, Santiago Island, Genovesa Island, Isla Seymour Norte, Santa Fe Island, and Floreana Island.

If the Galapagos are usually not in your bucket record… they need to be.

Simply listened to the Large Bend episode. I hope to get there myself subsequent 12 months.

Shocked there was no point out that Rio Grande is a Nationwide Wild & Scenic River, which is formally a separate unit of the Nationwide Park System.

One correction, Large Bend isn’t the one Nationwide Park space within the contiguous US that’s an Worldwide Darkish Sky park. Joshua Tree is one together with others.

Rattlesnakes are cool!
