Galapagos here we come!

Quito, Ecuador
I know its been awhile since we last wrote but we have been extremly busy with my parents. In the last two weweks we have traveled in Peru and Ecuador. 
    We have been to Inca ruins by foot, horse and train. Casey and I hiked up Huayna Picchu the mountain next to Machu Picchu. We have been to craft, local and live animal markets. We have soaked in thermal hot springs. We hiked in the cloud forest and spent 3 days in a tropical rainforest in the amazon. In the amazon we saw more than 35 bird species including a harpy eagle! We saw 5 diferent species of monkeys and we swam in pirahna infested waters, yes even my mom did that!
    Now we are off to our last adventure with my parents, We leave for the |Galapagos Islands in just a few minutes. We are all looking forward to this next instalment of the vacation.
Traveling with my parents has been an amazing experience so far and are sad that it ends at the end of the Galapagos.

More later
Matt and Casey

How exciting! Zach and I went to the Galapagos with my parents many years ago. It was the best trip I've ever been on ... I still dream about it and plan on going back with my kids someday!
