... and adaptations in the Galapagos. Perhaps it's the ouch ouch rocks....or the poison apple trees...or the leaves from the poison apple trees that emit a liquid which burns your skin on contact. Perhaps it's the simple reality that the entire island is seemingly designed to kill. For me however, the change came with the people that inhabit the towns (which only take up about 3% of the entirety of the Galapagos). For me, the personal adaptation came with ...

Journey by boat this morning to North Seymour Island (nsi). Home to frigate birds, blue footed boobies, iguanas & sea lions. Quite a trek round the island on often uneven ground, with the frigate birds nesting right beside the path! This is one of the thrills of the Galápagos, the animals have never learnt to fear humans! You can't walk up & pet them, but can get extremely close! Lots of frigates, the males are the ones ...

Quito -> Banos

Feeling a little worse for wear this morning we headed to see the rest of the old town and to find the cathdral which we were close to at points yesterday but didn't manage to find! As it was Sunday there was mass in most of the churches so they were open for the services. I have never been to Catholic mass before but saw part of 3 today! Including one by the Archbishop of Quito in the cathedral. We hung around ...

We have left Banos.... For Quito... Again

A travel blog entry by mattyjordan on Sep 23, 2013

Left Banos this morning after checking in and Tim and I got on a bus to Quito. I want to go to the Otavalo Markets that I missed last time I was here and we are going to check out Mindo before making our way to and then down the coast. I had my bag in between my feet and had a nap. Woke up in Quito with no phone and no wallet. When I was getting off the bus a couple who were sitting a few seats behind us said there was 2 ...

    Back for our 3rd visit in as many weeks as it is just so conveniently located, the staff are great and it's good value. Just an extra bathroom and toilet would put the icing on!

    This was a serviceable hostel that was pretty comfortable (some beds are softer than others) and mostly friendly (the day workers were nice, but the owners´family seemed a bit short). This place is big amongst Europeans it seems. There is a small community kitchen, but you have to buy your own drinking water. Not sure it deserved the rave reviews the guidebooks gave it though...
