On the Road Again

GalapogosThis October I’m leading a trip to the Galapogos for Road Scholar, with several more departures planned for next April and May.

There’s no doubt the Galapagos Islands provide one of the most thrilling wildlife experiences in the world. Without natural predators, the endemic species of the islands live fearlessly, so curious humans can observe the blue-footed boobies, iguanas, giant tortoises, penguins and the famous finches for a close-up of some of the most fascinating species in the animal kingdom. And because more than 97 percent of the islands is a protected national park — with a strictly limited number of visitors allowed — the Galapagos is as awe-inspiring now as in the days when Charles Darwin and Herman Melville waded onto its rocky shores.
