Back and Ready to Go Again

I got back on Thursday morning from a trip to the Galapagos Islands with my family.  It was one of those life-changing trips, as most tend to be for me.  I seem to find something to take away from every trip I take, whether its a stronger opinion on what to do with my life or where to go next.  I've always thought that I had a stronger appreciation for urban city environments, especially during traveling - more people to talk to, more of the built environment to take-in, etc... but on this trip, almost completely devoid of "architecture" as we think of it today, I couldn't have been happier.  We went hiking and snorkeling everyday, walking and swimming with sea lions, iguanas, turtles, schools of fish, penguins, and more birds than I can name.  It was an amazing trip, and as always, I'm a little upset to be back.  It has, however, re-inspired my goal to pay off my personal debt and start funding my own adventures as quickly as possible!  Below see some of my favorite photos (out of the 3000+ I came home with).
