Galapagos Islands, a unique wonder in the whole world

Hola Mundo

There is a proverb that says better late than ever, so here I would like to share a special recce to the Galapagos, with Amy Force, a great colleague that came to Ecuador for the first time ever, long time ago with Damian our Director, to find all the great camps in the country.

Now, this was her chance to finally see the Galapagos, a unique amazing place in the world. I always say I could live there with all the wildlife as a neighbor and the torquoise water of the ocean but of course dreams cost nothing.

Gap Year Diaries - Tsavo

On the 24th of January, the Aussie Gap team moved from Camp Muhaka to Tsavo. When we arrived we were warmly welcomed by the staff here and presented with lunch. We were then given a brief overview of the camp and its projects. These included making elephant dung paper, the tree nursery, sanctuary maintenance, Sasenyi School, wildlife monitoring, the bush adventure and lastly the safari.

Gap camp in the Ecuador Amazon

Over the weekend, with16 Gappers heading for Camp Amazonia, we and the community put the finishing touches to the building.  It looks great, even if it is not easy to photograph because there are trees absolutely everywhere.  "Can't see the wood for the trees"? - being in the Amazon puts a slightly different perspective on that concept.

With the group now there, we will post more photos this week with the place occupied and alive.
