So. It’s been one hell of a ride.

As we wind up our first-ever experience in the Galapagos Islands, we can’t help but think back to what we were thinking and how were feeling before we arrived. And it’s impossible for us not to think back to those days and just smile and shake our heads.

Despite all of our planning, despite all of our research, despite all the many articles and blogs and videos we’d read and seen about the Galapagos, and even despite all the great information given to us ahead of time by our friends at Adventure Life – before we came to the Galapagos, we still really honestly didn’t know what to expect when we got there. And it worried us.

Sure, we were excited. And certainly hopeful! Hopeful that we’d get see some incredible wildlife. Hopeful that we’d be immersed in, and completely overwhelmed by, the nature of the place. And certainly hopeful that our Galapagos experience would be everything we’d ever heard it would be. But nature is… well… nature. And nature of course does its own thing. And if nature wasn’t feeling particularly outgoing or exhibitive during our visit, there was always that chance that .  So honestly, we went into the trip with tempered expectations.

And trite as it may be – we can happily and excitedly report that the Galapagos exceeded  every expectation we ever had. No. Check that. It absolutely blew our expectations away. And as we quickly learned, it wasn’t because nature was doing us any favors. We didn’t just get lucky and catch nature having a good week. Turns out, the Galapagos is nature’s happy playground, and it’s all day, every day.

And this – the final episode of our epic Galapagos video series – encapsulates the entire experience perfectly. We know we’ve thrown the word “magical” around far too many times during this series, and you’ll hear it again a few times in this episode, but that word… that word just describes the place so, so well.

So do us a favor. Watch. And if you watch, you absolutely must, must, must watch through to the end. And if you find yourself covered in goosebumps when it’s all said and done, then we will have conveyed our Galapagos experience absolutely perfectly.

Then, do yourself a favor. Start planning your trip to the Galapagos immediately.

Cheers y’all! And as always, happy travels.
