Galapagos Trip Homepage

From December 26 - January 6 '05-'06, Amy and Voych traveled to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. 

It was an amazing trip, and had we not forgotten our camera in Toronto, these photos would do it justice!  Since Lucy's arrival, this trip has been called our 'Babymoon.' 

Indeed it was a babymoon, since it was only days after we returned that our pre-parenting adventures began...

The Galapagos Islands (also known as the Archipielago de Colon) are a collection of islands about 1000 km west of Ecuador in the Pacific Ocean. You can see in this map that they lie slightly south of the equator. Although the oldest islands are 5 - 10 million years old, these islands have no indigenous population. We decided to travel to the Galapagos in 2005 because we knew that we would soon be starting a family and that the time for adventures was coming to an end. We were able to spend a few days in Ecuador on either end of a Galapagos cruise run by GAP Adventures. Being science geeks and having a love for animals we were both in our glory during the cruise. Definitely an unforgettable trip.
 All of our photos were originally taken with a cheap replacement camera, then scanned. This means that the resolution is not great. I have done some colour correction to improve the situation.
