      We enjoyed having a kitchen equipped with everything we needed, including some oil, coffee, sugar, and even a few spices, and all the filtered water we wanted. The beds and bedding were comfortable and the rooms are clean. The showers are nice and hot. The rooms have airconditioners with remotes. The hostal is owned and run by an American/Ecuadorian couple. Kevin, gives a free tour of the town upon your arrival, with a run down of all the good places to go and eat at. We tried all of Kevin's recommendations and he was spot on. The hostal is not by the water but close enough and the taxis are only $1.00 anywhere within Puerta Ayora. Beer is always available for purchase, there is WIFi and computers to use, but the internet is very slow. There are internet cafes in town however, and that is what we used to download all of our pictures. There are also small groceries stores just around the corner and down the street. If you decide you want to go ahead a take a cruise, they will refund your money if you leave early. A good location, we were very happy with the entire experience.

      On September 15th we headed off to The Galápagos Islands to celebrate our upcoming 30th Anniversary -- which is officially on October 1, 2013. Now we can't say that these islands were anywhere on our "bucket list" before moving to Ecuador, but they quickly made that "list" after we arrived. And now -- check!

      A taxiride, a planeride, a busride, a ferryride, a busride and a taxiride later I was in Puerto Ayora, on Santa Cruz island in the Galapagos, where an enthusiastic owner of the hostel showed me around town right after I arrived. He pointed out the best restaurants, ATM machines and market, as well as making sure I would not get lost when I tried …

      Breakfast and then off to Guayaquil Airport. We had to get our bags checked and tagged at the Galápagos Biosecurity Control Inspection & Quarantine desk first and then move to another desk next door to pay $10 each for our Tourist Control Cards.

      We arrived at Baltra Island to hot breeze. The runway and terminal were both tiny, set in …

      ... are designed to be close to private land to minimize our footprint in the area. This means trekking alongside cattle and horses for the first few kilometers but we are in the Galapagos and the scenery is beautiful! I can’t get over the stunning landscape of these islands.

      If you want a closer exposure to the wild Galapagos, you need to go to the remote islands, but water taxis only depart about twice a week. We could have gone to the tortoise breeding area ...

      ... noe annet spennende.. Båtturen hjem tok 2,5 time og Stillehavet var langt fra blitt noe roligere i løpet av dagen. Hvis det er noe som heter hav-rafting så må dette kvalifisere til dette. Bølgene kom av og til mot oss som store vegger … litt skummelt for en lite sjøfaren Camilla. Vel tilbake på hotellet. En god dusj, litt hviling .. Så blir det vel en god middag siste kvelden på Galapagos i dag..
