My wife & I are not an ordinary couple, thankfully.
So when we married, we couldn’t see the point of just honeymooning on a sunny beach. For a special time we wanted a special holiday!
So instead we did a cruise around the Galapagos Islands, spent a night in Lake Titicaca, climbed the Inca trail to Machu Picchu, then stayed in the Amazon Jungle.
I got mugged & had my wallet & passport stolen in Cuzco, had a nightmare getting a temporary passport from the bureaucrats in Lima, nearly missing my flight back, got very sick from the cold & the altitude in Titicaca such that I thought I’d have to pull out of the Inca Trail climb – but I wouldn’t change it for anything else! Absolutely loved it.
So when I saw Tara Cain’s Gallery theme this week was ‘Creatures’ I immediately thought of the Galapagos & the amazing wildlife we saw there.
I’m sorry, but I found it impossible to select just 1 single image so here’s a few (click any image to enlarge):
And maybe the most amazing Creature of all:
