A trip to the Ecuadorian
mainland & the Galapagos Islands
a nature nut, a trip to South America and the Galapagos Islands in
particular was way, way over due. After much debate about the best way
to do it, we chose a trip where we stayed on the islands themselves
rather than on a boat. We were so pleased that we did it that way and
we had an amazing time on the islands and also on the Ecuadorian
mainland, needless to say the photos don't do either justice...
Day 1 -
Heathrow to Amsterdam
Concorde in BA colours at Heathrow - a comeback?
We had an overnight stay in
CitizenM - an ultra-modern 'boutique' hotel at the airport at Schiphol to ensure our
luggage made the same flight out to Quito as us the next morning...
