We are Galapagoing!
We are departing for the Galapagos Islands tomorrow early afternoon from Cuenca. We are taking a bus to Guayaquil, the largest city of Ecuador located on the western coast. We will arrive in Guayaquil tomorrow around 6:00 PM, spend the night in Guayaquil and rise early Sunday morning for our flight from Guayaquil to the Galapagos. We will spend the remainder of the week there until Friday the 9th at which point we will return to Guayaquil and spend the weekend there, returning to Cuenca on Sunday.
I could not be more ecstatic for this experience.
Because communication mediums at this point are unknown, I am uncertain as to whether or not I will be able to correspond via internet while away. In the event that I am not, I will do my best to promptly share my experience in full detail upon my return to Cuenca.
Our travels will include boat travel, hiking, volcano exploration, scuba diving, horse back riding, and seeing incredibly wildlife...AGH! I can barely stand the excitement!
