Two Years Off Photos from a backpacking journey around the world

Wildlife of the Galapagos Islands

As promised, here are just a few photos of the wonderful animals and natural sights of the Galapagos Islands. What makes the animals unique is that they have had very little human contact and therefore have not learned to be afraid of people. Instead, they have a sense of curiosity that allows us to get great close-up shots of the amazing wildlife.

    Those marine Iguanas are scary looking! Phuong nhi says she wanted to kiss those sea lions. She think they were cute.

    I love your photos!!! I almost cried when I saw them … they really brought me back to those moments in the Galapagos and while I have my own photos I loved seeing everything through your perspective! :-) So excited to be able to keep up with you on all your travels!!
