Galapagos / Mistral

I enjoyed my first cruise through the amazing Galapagos Islands in 1972, and went as often as I could over the intervening decades.  I even took my daughter for a wonderful intergenerational adventure in 1994.

In this story I attempt to describe what it is like to wander through these astonishing volcanic outposts, diving in the cool water and hiking the lava fields observing their endemic species.

Everything Darwin found enchanting about the islands is still there—the magnificent volcanoes towering across the horizon, the literal miles of lava flow right down to the sea, the ever-present sea lions, the albatrosses, the iguanas, the cactus, the finches the incredible tortoises and a wealth of marine life in the cool waters.

In this You Tube show I assemble many of my impressions for you to share.
