Galapagos!

_MG_9866 Kongo just finished a week in the Galapagos Islands aboard the Celebrity Expedition. This was a fantastic trip and the animals were over the top.  The monkey got up close and personal with boobies, land and marine iguanas, giant tortoises, mating albatross birds, sea lions, lava lizards, flamingos, Sally Lightfoot Crabs, and a bunch of other natural wonders that will be documented in future posts.

These photos are just a teaser for future posts.  There were sea turtles, flightless cormorants, blue footed boobies doing mating dances, an albatross on an egg, hawks, and scads of other great stories.

The monkey is resting back in Quito, Ecuador and will head home tomorrow at midnight.  While the Galapagos was an unforgettable experience, it is nice to be back where the internet doesn’t take five minutes to load a single page.

Kongo hopes you stay tuned for more stories of his adventures in the Enchanted Islands and the rest of his Peru adventures.

There are plenty more of Kongo’s Galapagos picture here.

Travel safe.  Have fun.

    • The flamingo was doing a nice pose. There are only about 300 flamingos on the Galapagos Islands and Kongo was lucky to spy this one.

  4. Stunning photos! The animals are really cute. Looks like Kongo made a lot of new friends on his trip, I hope they keep in touch. He looks a bit tired in the last photo…but I’m sure he’s bringing home a lot of great stories to share 🙂
