Arriving in the Galapagos Islands is breathtaking form the moment you touch down. Whilst always welcomed with a smile throughout South America, there are still times when you realise what it feels like to be different, to be part of the minority. We experienced this sensation also whilst in the Galapagos, however here it was different – our onlookers had flippers, fins, scales or feathers.
