Galapagos, part 2: the voyage

There is only one way to truly enjoy and experience Galapagos: taking a boat and cruising around these magnificent islands. I have discovered an incredible world that I would have never imagined. These are the pictures of this truly unforgettable voyage, and thanks to both the crew and the other guests of the yacht for an unbelievable week
