's first ever visit to the amazing Galapagos Islands and found it is one of those places that lives up to its impressive reputation.
The archipelago spreads across the equator off Ecuador on South America's west coast. This living museum of extraordinary animal life is separated from the mainland by a thousand kilometres of ocean and millions of years of history. There are 19 islands and more than 100 islets making up the World Heritage site.
