Safaris in Southern Africa

Islas Galápagos

In May, Steph and I followed the equator around to Ecuador for a voyage through the wildlife mecca that is the Galapagos Islands. Charles Darwin visited the archipelago in 1835 and brought the world’s attention to one of the most … more

Atop the roof of Africa on Mount Kilimanjaro
