The Champagne Backpacker: Michael's Round the World Trip 2005-2007-- The Adventure of a Lifetime travel blog

SUNDAY, APRIL 29, 2007. QUITO, ECUADOR. I have just returned to Quito after an eight day cruise in the Galapagos Islands. It was a fabulous cruise. I will post an update shortly.

A special thanks to my good friend and travel mate, Jeff, for enduring the past three months with me through Brazil, Colombia, and Ecuador. As Jeff could not change his flight without a large fee, he remained in the Galapagos to visit another island, Isabella. With the Galapagos done, I was ready to head home and flew back to Quito hoping to change my Delta Airlines reservation at Quito airport and catch tonight's flght back to the US. Unfortunately, the flight was full. I plan to try again tomorrow and, if unable to, will figure out something to do in Ecuador before my originally scheduled return to Los Angeles on May 4.

MONDAY, APRIL 30, 2007. QUITO, ECUADOR. I haven't been able to get on an earlier Delta Airlines flight. Thus, it looks like I will return as originally scheduled.

I have posted photos and captions from the Galapagos Islands. Summary explanations will follow shortly. For an interesting piece about roses, check out the April 20th post.
