Galapagos, Ecuador

We’re in the Galapagos!

*excited giggles*

Assuming everything goes smoothly as planned, when this post published we should be in the middle of our Galapagos cruise.

Which was not according to plan at all.

We weren’t planning to visit the Galapagos this early on our trip, and the original plan was to explore the islands as day trips as opposed to a cruise.

But things just kind of turned out differently, thanks to a thief. A car thief who decided to break into a dirty, California plate van parked in Quito’s Mariscal district.

Wait? What?

Well, I hate to leave you guys hanging, but I’m going to let our friends, Niel and Miin tell their stories in their own way.

But suffice to say, without the incident we wouldn’t be sharing a ride with them to Quito and we wouldn’t have ended up inside a travel agent’s office in Quito. A travel agent who specializes in last-minute flights to Puerto Ayora and last-minute Galapagos cruises.

Someone who is also well-equipped in dealing with couples who can’t keep their dates straights and minds made up.

Until the very last minute.

Anyway, there will more stories and pictures coming up in the next week. In the meanwhile, let’s focus on the fun part right now. Which is:

We’re on a boat!
