so, just a little of what I got to see, not to mention about 8 million other birds, some iguanas, the Blue Footed Booby, Galapagos Fur Seals, fishes, sharks, Manta Rays…. In short, you should probably just hop a plane to these amazing islands.
I know, I know, here is where I insert a recipe that I learned or enjoyed on said Galapagos voyage. Honestly, the food got me through, the real stand outs were soups I had to special order from the kitchen (of which my own versions are posted/are upcoming) and the Cassava root rolls of which I was assured I’d never be able to replicate. I took them at their word. They are the experts after all, and I’m no baker – clearly. There you have it, my lovelies.
I think traveling, wherever you can, takes you out of your comfort zone and pushes you to accept the reality beyond the one you create. Take your loved ones with you and share the experience – they’re richer that way. Even if that means taking/sharing through technology. I was without internet or other connection my entire trip, and while I value that time with my mom so much, I came back feeling like a rock in a river – everyone in my life had kept moving and living but I had taken a pause while they flowed around me. Partially awesome because it forced me to reassess, partially not awesome because an object at rest wishes to stay at rest. You get my drift?
I wish you great travels near and far with decent wireless internet. Costa Rica coming soon.
