A trip to the Galapagos Islands makes for a fabulous family vacation. There were only 20 people in our tour group and 6 of them were kids. The youngest was around 8 and the oldest was seventeen. The naturalists made a point of engaging the younger people on the trip and, many times, spoke directly to them, rather than the adults. The kids loved being able to get so close to the wildlife and asked more questions than all the adults combined. Some tour companies even specialize in trips for families. Others don’t allow children, so it’s a good idea to explore all your options. There is a tour company for every interest level, activity level, and budget.

After a long day of exploring the islands, the kids would gather in the hot tub or meet in the lounge to play cards.
Would you like to be part of Midge & Snig’s adventure in the Galapagos? Want to have your name (or any name you choose) in my next book? From now until the end of April, everyone who follows my blog, signs up for my newsletter, or leaves a comment, will be entered in a drawing for the chance to name the cruise ship featured in the book.
This post in part of the AtoZ Challenge. Please click on the sunflower AtoZ icon in the sidebar to go to the official list of participating blogs. This year my theme is the Galapagos Islands. I am in the process of writing the first of my Midge & Snig mystery series set in the islands. In my research, I have come across a plethora of interesting facts and images. The vast majority of my research won’t get included in the book, but it’s fun to share what I’ve learned with you all.
