On this page you will find photos from my annual "away-from-Bergen"
trip 2009. The aim of the trip this year was to visit the Galápagos
islands, during the Darwin year (the year 2009 was the bicentennial of Charles
Darwin's birthday (1809) and publication of his most important
book "The Origin of Species" (1859)). I therefore booked a cruise with the motorsailor yacht "The Beagle",
and sailed around the Galápagos Islands for one week in November
2009. On these pages you will find photos of the wildlife on these fantastic
islands in the eastern parts of the Pacific Ocean. Also included here are some photos from mainland Ecuador, where I spent
another week and from the Caribbean, where I spent 10 days on Bonaire,
one of the ABC Islands just north of Venezuela.
