Galápagos Bucket Pass Benefits
It seems very obvious to say this, but the trip was nothing short of incredible. The only set back from the trip is that I am now in the situation where I have no idea what I am going to do when I have a mid life crisis, but I’m sure something will pop up. If and when you have the opportunity to go I highly recommend bringing a camera to capture this once in a lifetime experience, that way you will be able to remember it forever.
