The Galápagos… Through Words
“The Galápagos are a slow-burn destination. They’re not like the Sistine Chapel and the Eiffel Tower, confronting travelers with their startling beauty. The Galápagos creep up on you. They lull you into a false sense of familiarity—here a cactus, there a seagull—and for a second, you wonder if all those years of anticipation were mistaken. The landscape, dry and gray, is not the wonderful alien world you expected, just an ordinary blanket of scrub. But that’s when the slow burn kicks in. Once you’ve acclimated to the landscape, you begin to see the subtle otherworldliness of the place.”
