My Galapagos Islands tour is one vacation that I will never forget. It is a difficult task to explain to people the wonders of the unique wildlife and beautiful landscape occupying these islands.

A picture can tell a story, but without experiencing Galapagos in person, one can never understand how magnificent it really is. My 16th birthday fell in the time that I was in the Galapagos with my mom. Needless to say, I will always remember my 16th birthday over any other. I won't remember it as the time when I was able to receive my driver’s license; I will remember being in the Galapagos Islands enjoying nature’s beauty at its best.
