The Galapagos Islands Are So Photogenic

When I was asked to represent Our Awesome Planet on a National Geographic cruise through the Galapagos, you bet that I disregarded everything I learned about branding and went straight for it. I'm new here, I think I have some space for wiggle room.

No, I normally would not take a cruise through the Galapagos because yes, it is a lot of money. But I do say "Yes" whenever possible and this just seemed like an opportunity I couldn't pass up. I skipped the Galapagos when I first backpacked through South America because just to get there was about $1000 that a little ol' backpacker like myself wouldn't be able to pay for.

Nervous about what you all would think of me for taking a cruise, I remembered that I don't really care and went with my camera held high anyway.

Here are my favorite outcomes:

The beautiful sunset at Leon Dormido was breathtaking.
The water surrounding Española Island is aqua blue and the sea lions love to play and rest around it.
Española Island has a wonderful hike that starts with playful sea lion pups
