Island Hopping in Galapagos Island or travel Galapagos Island by cruise? It is probably the most common question asked when planning Galapagos Island travel. Prior to starting my one year tour, I did some extensive study on different travel methods on these island. I did my travel to Galapagos Island in March 2016 for 10 days and my experiences may help you to decide if you will do a Cruise or Island hopping in Galapagos Island.
During our four months tour of South America, we arrived at the Capital of Peru, Lima, also known as the Gastronomic Capital of South America. We have been travelling on a budget for over two months now, but we have booked a restaurant, ranked fourth best in the world, before we have even left Australia. This restaurant is called Central Restaurante.
Going to Easter Island is dream for many, including myself, when we want to understand more about this fascinating ancient civilization and look at the mystical Moai statues. Because my partner and I have both quit our jobs to go on a one year extended trip, we had to work out how to travel to Easter Island on a budget when we are planning our South America trip.
After our first stop in Buenos Aires, we made our way down south towards Patagonia region to see Glaciar Perito Moreno. Our original plan was to bus down to El Calafate, however the total journey was going to take over 40 hours as the total distance was over 3000Km!
After one year’s worth of saving and preparation our world tour has finally began! Our First stop is a place known to be “Paris of South America”; it is also known as the capital of Argentina, Buenos Aires. In this completely foreign country, I am very fortunate to have an old friend who grew up and lives here locally to take us around. Buenos Aires is really different to all other cities I have been to before, I will now share with you our little Buenos Aires adventure!
