Nirihuau-Condor’s nest-Vulture’s area

Nirihuau – area Las Buitreras o “nido de cóndores” = Condor’s nest – Vultures area. Bariloche is located in front of the beautiful Nahuel Huapi Lake and it is famous for the beauty of its lakes, mountains and forest. But… toward the “other side” of the Andes going east to the coast  you will find an amazing steppe that is full of unique moon landscapes, geoforms that look like mushrooms, birds like the kingfisher and condors that were flying over us…

Nazca Lines, Paracas and Ballestas Islands

Nazca Lines, Paracas and Ballestas Islands

Farewell to Galapagos

They are not in captivity but rather able to roam freely as they have for thousands of years before the humans arrived. They can live over hundred years and weigh…

Visiting with iguanas and a high-five from a blue footed booby.

On our third day in Puerto Ayora we took another boat trip this time to Isla Isabela. We departed at 7 am in a perfect weather for navigation. The sea was calm and no clouds in the sky. As we glided across the waters of the archipelago I sat on the front of the boat, mesmerized by the ocean and the flying fish jumping out of the water. After two and a half hours and passing some smaller islands we…
