So, I've been thinking about a trip. I'd love to go to the Galapagos or to Machu Picchu, which are both relatively close to hear, maybe early in 2015. I'm having trouble deciding. We'd definitely do a land-based Galapagos trip, maybe visiting only one or two islands. Given that I have a pile of frequent flier miles, neither trip is cost-prohibitive, so I don't look at it as some sort of once-in-a-lifetime trip that I wouldn't repeat, so it doesn't bother me that we might miss out on a bunch of stuff on a land-based tour. I'd just like to experience SOME of it at this point, and I think the kids would get a kick out of the animals. Plus, we have friends we could stop over with on the way there, and then other friends we could visit on the way back, if we route the flights correctly. Machu Picchu, on the other hand, has parts that I think would be interesting for my kids (they'll be about 3 and 5 by the time I'm thinking of traveling in early 2015). But, it also has parts they aren't going to care about.
