Well folks, were off to the Galapagos Islands. We fly early tomorrow into Ecuador. Our tour group starts saturday. This is my husbands 40th year b-day dream trip. Like a good cruiser, we are flying in the day before. We are on a 78 foot "yacht". It sleeps 24 people, total for the passengers and crew. We cruise the islands for 7 nights. We then fly to Peru, for a 3 night hike on the Inca trail to Machu Picchu. We are actually doing 2 separate tours with them. Anyways, we are going with "Gap Adventures", they are based out of Canada. They were recommended in National Geographic Traveler Magazine, as a "cheaper" way to see the islands. I guess, compared to the more expensive Celebrity and other ships. The flight from Ecuador to the islands is included, and all meals, snorkeling, and excursions are included, (except the $100 per person nat. park fee). If anyone has any questions about the islands, let me know. Will do my best to answer them. So, I have one question!! Do you call a 78 foot yacht a ship or a boat??
I guess to be proper, I could just call it a yacht, but that sounds to stuffy. Bye,
