My plan was to keep up with my travel blog while in the Galapagos Islands. I even made blog post TEMPLATES before I left, thinking I'd just fill them in with the fun I was having, and I'd get a beautiful blog post. Unfortunately, things have not worked out so nicely. A few days into my trip now, I've managed to keep up with writing and notes, but it's just too hard to process photos on a Chromebook. With no slideshow viewer and a few hundred photos, not to mention slower internet than I'm used to, I simply can't find the best photos easily. And I don't want my blog having sub-par photos now do I?
It also doesn't help that I'm sleep deprived. Today I had a great time, but was a bit cranky and fell asleep in the car, while our tour guide was driving us to our hostel. I'm used to working crazy hours - I majored in engineering, worked in startup companies, and will be starting a PhD soon - but I can't keep a hectic schedule for three weeks. So these entries will have to wait, and in the meantime, I'll write silly posts like this one. Also, part of the reason I'm sleep-deprived today:
The flight from Quito to the Galapagos was about 3.5 hours, including a stopover in Guayaquil. We had to meet our airport transfer at 5:45am, which was insane, but there was plenty of time to sleep on the plane. However, one of our flight attendants was really, really good-looking, and I got too distracted to sleep. Safety demonstration was fun though, as was the beverage and meal service.
