Preparing for the Next Big Adventure

USA | Monday, 17 November 2008 | Views [202]

I am home.  Counting down days until I leave for the Galapagos Islands.  It has been on my list for quite some time.  I am really excited!  Though, it now seems to almost have taken a back seat.  After planning and paying for this trip, I decided to go and live and work in Peru as a Missionary for Peru Mission.  It has been a whirlwind as I try to prepare for that life changing event.  And so, it is not surprisingly, that this trip to Galapagos has sort of taken a back seat.

I leave December 26 flying to Lima, Peru.  I then fly on the 27th to Quito, Ecuador.  I will have 4 or 5 days in the islands before returning to Quito.  Then Jan. 1 and 2 to explore Quito and the equator.  One of the things I am looking forward to is standing with one foot in each hemisphere!  What a blast.   From what I read, the monument at the "equator" is not the actual equator, but it is within a few kilometers of the actual equator.  I plan on seeing both.  And of course all of the wildlife on the islands!  giant tortioses to blue footed boobies.  I know it will all be spectatulare!
