Galápagos Islands dream

I loved Charles Darwin books growing up. They were full of stories about interesting places, strange creatures, and beautiful landscapes. One of those places was Galápagos Islands. And it was my dream for a long time to see this wonder for myself. One of my co-workers took a trip there. And how I waited. I asked all about it but he was not impressed. He told me it was all rock and nothing else. Furthermore he assured me there is nothing to see there. Galápagos Islands were boring. So I really got discouraged. However, my wiser friend told me that I should judge for myself. Where one person sees nothing, other may discover a treasure. Finally I put all doubts aside and went on the unforgettable trip to the magic paradise. And I am grateful to my wise friend as I discovered a treasure of nature and animal life beyond my wildest dreams. Yes, it is very different but vibrant and interesting nonetheless.

There are multiple islands and routes that you can take travelling to Galápagos Islands. And I do not want to concentrate on specifics, even though I will share the map of my travel with you. What I want to talk about is top 10 things I fell in love with and discovered for myself in this remote universe.
