For the final travel post in my “Best of 2011” series, I’m sharing my favorite personal travel photo of the past year.
A few moments before the shot was taken on the island of Santa Cruz, this giant tortoise had been munching away on a few apples nearby. As it raised its head, the tortoise extended its leathery neck toward fellow visitor, 10-year-old Jesse. The curiosity of the tortoise toward its human visitor and Jesse’s surprise to be the object of that curiosity captures the wonder of my Galapagos Islands adventure.
What was one of your most memorable travels moments in 2011, Wanderboomers?
