We woke up at 9.45 - what a great nights sleep! Shortly afterwards, we were heading west down the M4 for Bristol. Traffic was fairly light, so it didn't take long.
Back in Bristol, we found a small white dog sound asleep! He didn't stay asleep for long though. I think he was pleased to see us!
We had a great holiday in South America and would love to go back to see some more of the continent. We thoroughly enjoyed what we had seen of Ecuador, but our highlights were probably the jungle and cloudforest despite the fact that we were expecting the Galapagos to be the best.
In the Galapagos, we saw just about every bird that you can, with the exception of the Flightless Cormorant (which is only seen on one island that we didn't visit), we saw just about every mammal and amphibian and reptile that inhabits the islands so there were no suprise sightings. This was contrasted in the Jungle and Cloudforest where you never knew what you were going to see each day.
Nonetheless, it was a wonderful experience and now we are back, Christmas is looming, so no time for rest!
