Traveler Story: A Galapagos Sistercation
My sister, who is also my favorite travel partner and lifelong best friend, lives 1,600 miles away, so we don’t have the opportunity to see each other frequently. We decided to take a dream “
Our first snorkel of the trip was at sunrise at Leon Dormido. Although I was nervous and somehow ended up with my wetsuit on backward on the first attempt, our guides took the time to patiently coach me through how to correctly use and adjust my equipment and be confident in the water.
During this first snorkel, I fell in love with this underwater world, which is full of new life to explore. One of the highlights was swimming with a few sea lion friends, who created the cutest “photobomb” selfie ever made.
By the end of the trip, I felt at home in the water, hanging out with fish, sharks, turtles and even tropical penguins. On the land, we experienced camping with 100-year-old tortoises.
