    Galapagos Islands: Exploring One Of The Uniquest Places On Earth

    Nowhere else in the world will you ever find a place more staggering and filled with unique experiences of natural beauty and wildlife, like the Galapagos Islands.

    Sitting approximately 600 miles from the Ecuador coast, the islands have been gifted an unusual pattern of weather cycles and geographical location. Do not compare the atmosphere to other tropical or sunbathed environments like Barbados, the Bahamas or Brazilian rainforests.

    The Galapagos Islands are unforgettable because there’s something prehistoric about them. No rain forest or woodland can compare to the bulging islands, thrashing out of the water and the one-of-a-kind animals that still inhabit the island. If ever there was a truly untouched and bare natural setting, this is it.

    Exploring the islands requires thoughtful planning because there’s so much to study.

    Discover Canada with Radisson

    To celebrate Canada’s 150, we all were given the opportunity to be gifted the 2017 Discovery Pass as FREE admission to Canada’s National Parks, National Marine Conservation Areas, and National Historic Sites. And if you’re anything like me, who wouldn’t jump on that offer to go on several adventures throughout the year?

    *Disclosure: I was invited to dine at Ernest’s Dining Room. Views expressed in this post are solely mine. I will always provide my 100% honest and transparent opinion, the complimentary dinner did not impact my feedback.

    Since the 1960s, NAIT’s dining room has been a huge part of the Culinary Arts and Professional Food Studies. This allowed the 2nd year students to have hands-on experience in crafting delicious food and providing top quality experience. In 2005, it was renovated to provide a more modern feel while still holding on to its quality.
