The Galapagos Islands, where Darwin found the inspirations for the "origin of species" is the place with an abundance of wildlife. Isolated from the mainland for millions of years, animals have no instinctive fear of humans and evolved in their own ways. Marine iguana, blue-footed booby, sea lion, giant tortoises, tropical penguin, ... in one week we have seen so many unique creatures that made this an unforgettable experience.
