Las Encantadas

The picture is of the redningskoite boat Isabella which sailed from Norway to the Galapagos Islands in 1925. This is recorded in the text Drømmen om Galapagos (Dreaming of the Galapagos), which can be found on the website: Human and Cartographic History of the Galápagos Islands by the author John Woram. Mr. Woram has written books on Patagonia and the Galapagos. If you like maps, history or have ever dreamed of visiting the Galapagos, you should visit the site.

The following is a map of Darwin's route through the islands. (Frank J. Sulloway)
