Yes, we’re baaack!
I’ll begin posting about our fantastic adventure as soon as I get some photos processed. How quickly that happens will depend on what I find heaped on my plate when I go to work tomorrow :-) I have thousands of photos to cull through; always a sign of a good trip!
In the meantime, here’s a video compiled from a Keynote presentation (Apple’s PowerPoint application, if you will) that I created to take you on a quick, 64-second voyage through the Galápagos Islands on Celebrity Xpedition’s B Itinerary.

We sort of knew in advance what to expect of the Galápagos. We went with high expectations; we were not disappointed. We enjoyed an experience that balanced the wildlife, the landscape, the ecology, and the geology of the islands. And we made a few new friends in the process.
On the other hand, we had no real idea of what to expect of mainland Ecuador. And WOW — did it ever deliver an excellent experience. One that was equally as wonderful and impressive as the islands, but in a very different way. We’re so glad we added the up-front days in Quito and its environs.
Plenty more to come from our trip. For now, though … see you later — or as they would say in Ecuador … hasta luego!
