22nd January 2011
So today was the final day of this amazing trip and a great 30th, our last excursion was going to be a brief one with a short visit to the Gemelos craters. Twin craters located opposite each other on both sides of the road leading from Puerto Ayora to Baltra, the name is only figurative, they are not real craters. These were created by the collapse of surface material into underground fissures and chambers.
The view was breathtaking with the lush green vegetation everywhere. After spending a few moments at the large sink holes it was time to leave for the airport where we started this great adventure 7 days earlier.
At the airport, we thanked William for everything and for being the best guide anyone could have hoped for. He had truly made the whole trip memorable, a bittersweet ending to one of life’s great adventures of self exploration. We went through passport control and waited in the departure area for our flight back to Ecuador.
