Galapagos Adventure

Travellers Tales: Galapagos Adventure

24/8/13 -5.30pm

Up at 2am at Heathrow for 6.30am flight to Amsterdam.

After 11 hours, I finally made it to our meeting point hotel, San Francisco de Quito, but still had another 2 hours flight time ahead of us early the next morning.  I was shattered.

6.pm- The hotel room was nice and I was ready and waiting to meet my roommate, plus yet to meet the others.

Kenya may not be top of mind for a holiday with the kids, but ... Enjoy superb wildlife viewing, visit conservation charities to see how they care for orphaned and injured animals, and meet with Maasai tribespeople on The Adventure Company's 10-day Land of the Masai family adventure, suitable for families with children aged 5 and older.

Old running shoes are not ideal footwear for hiking an active volcano. I learned this the hard way a few years ago when I climbed Pacaya, one of three volcanoes surrounding the colonial city of Antigua in Guatemala. There was no mistaking the smell of burning rubber as the soles of my trainers melted almost clean away from the rest of my shoes, before I’d even reached one of the golden-orange rivers of lava.

India in a week

Day 1 Arrive Delhi

I arrive in Delhi to the shock that the airport, aside from some 70s-style carpets, is one of the nicest, most modern and cleanest I’ve seen in a long time. A cavernous arrival hall makes the place feel strangely empty and adds to the phased out feeling always brought on by an overnight flight.

The transfer guide is easy to find and I wait a few minutes before jumping in the car to the hotel. Not before hiking halfway across the airport and through the various car parks to where I’m parked.

From Russia with love
