It’s hard to put into words the beauty that surrounds you when in the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador. One thing that struck me is how exceptionally clean the area is, and how much the locals care. I was constantly lectured about recycling and respecting the wildlife and plants, not just by tour guides, but by average Galapagos citizens. Moreover, the experiences with the unique fauna here is unlike anywhere in the world – like sea lions dining with pelicans, marine iguanas resting on your feet, swimming uncaged with hammerhead sharks and giant tortoises mating in a pond.
