My Galapagos Luxury Cruise Adventure – 15 Days That Changed My Life

May 16, 2014 Luxury Cruises Galapagos, Travel to Ecuador No Comments

Galapagos IMG_1232 (3)Who knew that my decision to celebrate my “big” birthday via a trip to the Galapagos Islands would change my life? Certainly that possibility didn’t even occur to me.  This was one more location on my long list of destinations I wanted to visit. After all, I’ve traveled all over the world, loving every moment (to be fair, almost every moment.) I’ve traveled alone, with my husband, my entire family, my friends, on boats, custom tours with private guides and even by bus. I’ve stayed in luxurious hotels and eco-lodges. But, nothing touched my heart or opened my eyes.  No where made me yearn to return.  That is – until the Galapagos Islands.  My first trip was in 2012, for one week – not long enough for me.  Less than a year later, in January 2013, I returned for two weeks.  Still wanting more, my third trip was in April 2014, again for two weeks.

It’s not easy to relate just how I feel about Galapagos, but one way is to tell you is to emphasize that the Galapagos Islands are like no where else in the world.  There, the 21st century collides with prehistoryTechnology collides with evolutionScience integrates with preservation of the species.  Diversity and survival of the fittest go hand in hand. Rules and regulations become guidelines for how to maintain our planet.

While I don’t consider myself an expert by any means, I do feel that I have a lot of insight since I have immersed myself in the biodiversity of these remote and beautifully preserved islands.  I want to share my thoughts and the highlights of my experience.  In the process, I hope I impart some of my passion.  I also want to help anyone who is interested in traveling to the Galapagos Islands to ask the right questions and make the right decisions for their personal luxury trip, based on their priorities.

Outside of traveling to the visitor sites and having a wonderful learning experience, among my priorities was having great accommodations and first class serviceAll three of my trips have been on luxurious catamarans.  Through the blog posts, I want to tell you why I find that sparing no expense and choosing these boats was one of the best decisions I made.

In the upcoming posts, I will take you through all 15 days of my trip and to all of the islands I visited as I introduce you to the wonders that Charles Darwin barely experienced.  Every day was a treat.  Every day was different.
