The path got steeper and deeper. more »

Ushuaia, Argentina

So this is Ushuaia! The world’s most southern town. It’s a quaint little town that reminds me of Seward, Alaska. Pretty much each day here it is cold, warm, sunny and raining in its 18 hours of daylight. I imagine it’s the same in the winter, without the heat and change the daylight to dark. more »

Isabela Island, Galapogos

So after a hellish three-hour boat ride on a tiny craft in the Galopogos rough seas, we arrived in the beautiful island of Isabela. The first thing I did was head to Sierra Negra on horseback. This volcano that erupted like less than two years ago, claims the 2nd largest caldera in the world. It was a very clear day in the highlands, and we could see all the way across.
I saw flamingos, pelicans, frigates, boobies, stingrays, sharks, sea lions, turtles, iquanas, eels and of course penquins. These are the 2nd smallest type of penquins. We saw them swimming, paddling on the surface in groups of 15-20, and sitting on the rocks.
After a few days I took another small boat on a terrible ride to the island of Floreana to do some snorkling at Diablo Corona (Devils Crown). We then went on to San Cristobol. The only thing I liked about this island was the enormous sea lion colony that took over most of the beach and some of the boardwalk. Oh yeah, and it was the place to go to get to Española! more »
