The Garden of Eden

This past week I went with four friends to one of the most beautiful places in the world, the Galapagos Islands.  First of all you need to know this trip was very random and was not planned in advanced.  Last Monday I was just wasting time and searching flight deals on “Cyber Monday” when I stumbled on a round-trip ticket from my city of Guayaquil, Ecuador to San Cristobal, Galapagos Islands for under $200, I bought the ticket instantly; I was also grateful enough to talk four of my other friends into buying a ticket to accompany me as well.  So the following Friday my friends and I packed up and left for the Galapagos Islands.

While flying to San Cristobal right before landing I watched as our plane lowered and the island came into focus so much clearer, my first thought: I have never seen water so crystal clear before.  As I stepped off the plane, I took my first step in paradise.  Charles Darwin proposed his “Origen of Species” after his voyage to the Galapagos Islands, however I know I stumbled upon the “Garden of Eden”.

My days consisted of swimming side by side with sea lions, sharks, sea turtles, and many colorful fish.  I saw thousands of different birds, including the Darwin Finches, and I walked up to a lagoon inside the crater of an inactive volcano.  Humans and nature are not scared of one another there, there is no competition.  These animals have no fear of humans, I was literally centimeters from baby sea lions and I even had some finches land on my shoulder.

While in the Galapagos I visited two different islands: San Cristobal and Santa Cruz.  I went to the famous Tortuga Bay, I snorkeled, went to Puerto Chino beach, and visited El Junico Lagoon (the only source of freshwater on any of the Galapagos Islands).  Oh and I forgot to mention, the last night on the island my friends and I slept in sleeping bags on the beach-the coolest thing I have ever done, the stars were amazing.

I truly enjoyed my five day adventure in the Galapagos Islands.  I highly recommend anyone who has the opportunity to visit these rare, ecologically important islands, takes that opportunity; it was a trip of a lifetime for me.  I plan to one day return to the islands when I have more time to explore more of the islands.  It was very hard to leave paradise and return to Guayaquil, however, I know one day I will go back.

Best wishes to you all, I am home in 15 days!
