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:
Tame Airlines Plane
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.
Galapagos Islands
Okay, that wasn't the only reason I couldn't sleep. I also wanted to look out the window when we landed to see what the Galapagos looked like from above. This was our first view, beautiful, isn't it? Believe me, it's even prettier once you're in the Galapagos.

Thanks for stopping by! Yes it's been a while since I've seen you. I've had the travel bug for a while, so trying to go on vacation as much as possible before starting graduate school.
