“I first took people to the Galapagos Islands back in 1991 when I was working as a tour leader in South America. A lobster lunch on Christmas Day in San Cristobal with my wife-to-be is one of our fondest memories.”
The Galapagos Islands were discovered in 1535 by the Spanish Bishop of Panama, Fray Tomas. He sent back reports to King Charles V of Spain of incredibly tame wildlife, huge tortoises and unusual iguanas.
