I thouroughly enjoyed my trip to the Galapagos Islands! It is such an amazing and unique place, but this is also why many species are endagered. I was especially pleased that I was able to learn so much and actually participate in conservation projects. I have always wanted to visit the Galapagos but couldn´t justify being a tourist without helping this delicate habitat. Lead-adventures provided the perfect opportunity for me to visit four different islands, see so many interesting species and also help out with conservation work! Although the work was physically demanding, some of my best memories on the trip were during the project days. I met so many people from all over, and their stories were intriguing and inspiring. I hope to continue conservation work in the future.
In addition to the work, the organised trips were amazing. I know I couldn´t have planned some of the adventures we had participated in and I´m so grateful that Lead-adventures was so good at providing scheduled activities, along with meals and transportation.
Lastly, I much preferred our housing to a hotel. Living in less that 5 star accommodations allowed me to better appreciate the islands, and become more integrated in the culture.
