Well well well lads and lassies,
Who can believe it’s been so long since our time on the beautiful Galapagos islands, where the living is easy. We hope you all brought the Galapa-magic home with you, and that you haven’t forgotten any of the epic ideas you came up with in our plastics workshop… (Except maybe you guys Kate, Nick, Hailey and Melissa…let’s wait a bit longer until we implement extreme measures).
We still find ourselves thinking about the trip, and showing photos to friends, especially those of future National Geographic photographer Sammi. Ah to swim with sea turtles and sea lions again, Grace D you really got involved with the bubble blowing, and Anderson I’m sure you are still proving yourself as one of the strongest, never refusing an opportunity to get in the water!
We all miss the giant tortoises (not giant turtles Grant!…or tortuuuuuuga as Alek would say *insert Scottish accent), and Lexi we are sure Annabelle is missing you too. Grace H, whenever we hear Riptide we think of you with the ukulele on the terrace, and Grace D we hope you’re sharing that amazing voice with note groups. Liza, we still salute you for your Galapa-patience with the Galapa-spiders, and you certainly took the crown for Gala-knowledge as demonstrated in the Galapa-quiz! Who can forget that time you guys played (AND WON….riiiiiight?!)a Galapagonian soccer match, and Shane and Abi we hope you’re still putting your skills to use.
We hope the trip has encouraged you guys to keep traveling and exploring, although Lilly we hope you pack less time, Morgan we know you learned some life skills on this trip- remember the toilet plunging (;-)).Colee keep on shooting epic travel photos and Russel as you’ll be the first to graduate from college we are passing on the GLA torch to you pal. All in all, a fab trip was had, and we hope you guys are keeping that GLA-d spirit alive, and showing as much gusto as Spenser did in all his volunteering and trying new things.
Peace out fam, you’re fave Galapagirls,
-Diana and Eimear
