I've been writing about a volunteer/adventure travel trip to the Galapagos for a while as I think it is a great way to explore the islands from a different, more adventurous perspective.

If you search this site, you will find a few attempts to give it the attention I think it needs as there are a lot of people trying to get you to spend your time there with their tours or companies.

I recently wrote an article about the trip, which is run by a company called Lead-Adventures. Click the picture above to see how it turned out.

One note.. It lists my email address with Lead-Adventures for contact. This was supposed to read that if people sign up through me, they will be also helping a foundation in Quito called Project DCR by doing so. I made a special arrangement with Lead so that money directed my way for signing people up goes to the foundation which helps street kids in Quito get ready to re-enter the public school system.

You can find out more about Project DCR on this site as well. If your interested in volunteering with them, they require three months of your time and are great to work with. Contact me for details.

Hi Jon,

If you would like , please post this on my World Travel List


I spent some great touring Galaagos.


I am travel expert, Nick Kontis, from San Francisco and  I started the discount around the world airfare market  in the U.S. back in the 80s, when Americans were not taking around the world backpackers trips. I created a $999.00 around the world ticket.  I made traveling around affordable form Americans.  Yes, that was a long ago.

Now, because of my love for travel , I started the World Travel. List Please join the facebook page Over 30,000 people check in a month and we're growing, and do post on our Wall.


And if your a travel company. Post your info on the World Travel List free advertising site. Why not advertise for free! Talk about  your company, mention deals and specials. Let us help you sell your tours or fill up your hotel, or if your a tourist board, let us promote your region of the world in front of tens of thousands of travelers.  After all, we are "all things travel." People will find your travel company on the WTL web site.


Please join my world travel list and read my rants, raves,  finds, steals and deals

Thanx,  Nick
