“Ever since we met, I have heard you say two words, many, many times: Galápagos Islands. I know from your mother that, as a little boy, you used to study images in books from a land far, far away… and you would dream of visiting that place one day: one of tortoises and iguanas and sea lions and penguins,” she wrote in the caption. “Colors of sea life that make up underwater rainbows, and countless star fish lining the ocean floor, a marine constellation.”
