Galapagos!!

We are here! It took us almost 11 hours of travel to get here but man is it worth it. We were invited by Gap Adventures (www.gapadventures.com) to join a group of travelers to the Galapagos Islands. It’s an area of the world Ish and I have long had a fascination with – Charles Darwin’s evolution theories stem from his interactions here.
There are several islands in the Galapagos and we’re visiting three of the inhabited ones in search of everything from sharks in the water to turtles in the wild. We’ve already fallen in love with the island of Isabella. Sand in the streets, surfer dudes on the corner and a bakery that opens its doors at 3 pm. each day with 15cent hot rolls that have us drooling at 2:45.
Internet isn’t always easy to come so I’ll stop talking long enough to upload some photos and video you might enjoy.
More soon!

Thanks for sharing  with  us!! It is so refreshing to see and read about the  kids  perspective  on  their respective experiences.  Cam’s video has  certainly  conveyed  the fact  that being adventurous doesnot mean having to throw  caution to the wind.  Smart  move guys!!! Love it!!!

Hello Ethan and Davis family!  As the school year rapidly approaches I was thinking of you and your amazing trip!  The pictures and stories are awesome and I will keep checking in you as you continue.  You’ll be missed this year Ethan, but I’d rather be where you are than here!  Have fun!
Mr. Woodger

Your students
