Two years ago today, my mom and I went on our best adventure yet—the Galápagos bookended by stays in mainland Ecuador and then Perú. I straddled the equator line, standing in both the northern and southern hemispheres at the same time. I swam with sea lions, turtles and penguins. I saw the gigantic Galapagos tortoises and Machu Picchu. It was the best trip, but I’m sure we have plenty ahead of us.
