Off line and truly in the wild, these islands are truly magical. Our first expedition from the Seaman (our home for 4 days) to San Cristobal.

Here’s what we saw … many mocking birds

Our first mega land tortoise

A baby tortoise in our path – whose home is this anyway?

A very Latin city – lively, colourful with fascinating heritage, stunning views and great architecture. The city is surrounded by snow capped volcanoes and green, green mountains

Madonna overlooks the city

Local traders …

Stunning views

Papparazzi in the jungle …

We met up with Caroline & James, Fran & Sean and set off horse riding to see condors – my first ever riding experience – and I loved it!

Here – we are all just about to set off …
