Galápagos Islands - August 2015
The Galápagos Islands is a volcanic archipelago in the Pacific Ocean. It's considered one of the worlds foremost destinations for wildlife viewing. A province of Ecuador, it lies about 1,000km off its coast. Its isolated terrain shelters a diversity of plant and animal species, many found nowhere else. Charles Darwin visited in 1835, and his observation of Galápagos' species later inspired his theory of evolution. This trip was one of my bucket list trips.
