Galapagos Islands

We travelled to the Galapagos Islands with Lead Adventures, based in Quito, Ecuador. I really like the fact that they’re a local company, and so a lot of what you pay goes to the locals, and has an immediate impact. As soon as we arrived on Santa Cruz Island, we were taken to an area that borders the National Park, and where the giant tortoises are often found:

Central America coming up!

You may know that Chris and I have sold everything and are permanent travellers. We are mixing in working as volunteers on various conservation projects, with travelling and staying in interesting places, and living as much as possible with the locals. We’ve just spent Christmas in England with family, after a wonderful three months in South Africa, and we’re off again in a couple of days’ time!

We’ll be taking a one-way cruise from Southampton to Fort Lauderdale, on the beautiful Cunard ship Queen Elizabeth.
