I’m leaving on a jet plane–to the Galapagos

I wanted to write this MUCH earlier but work has been hectic.  My college roommate and I decided to go on a trip to the Galapagos, both to take in the sights and to visit an old friend from college.  So here is my projected list of things to bring on this trip.  Any last minute suggestions would be awesome from readers if you have anything to add 🙂

sunscreen
poncho/waterproof jacket
travel pillow
bug spray
disinfectant spray/wipes
backpack
underwater camera
first aid kit (meds, band aids, neosporin, etc.)
moisturizer
lip balm
hat (maybe) & sunglasses
flashlight
scarf
water shoes
sweater/fleece
quick drying pants
snorkel & goggles
swimsuit
wetsuit
flip flops
sneakers
ID
passport
(regular) camera

 

The reason that I’ll be bringing so many cool weather items is because apparently the Galapagos gets a little chilly in August due to changes in the currents around this time of year.  Hopefully, this list helps others plan their trip and/or inspires people to comment with helpful feedback!
