The Galápagos Islands are known for being one of the more expensive places to visit, especially when compared to the price of traveling through mainland Ecuador. I knew I couldn't pass up a trip to the islands made famous by Charles Darwin. I visited the islands on a budget that ultimately equalled $79 a day.
So how was my first Workaway experience? Well, it commenced with a somewhat rocky start. After arriving at the entrance road to the farm I finally figured out that everyone on the farm was intently talking about something in Spanish. It turned out one of the power lines was down, which meant no electricity at the farm.
