My Travels with Darwin
Charles Darwin sailed on the HMS Beagle on its second trip to South America under Captain Fitz Roy, RN. All told, he spent five years on the trip, which circumnavigated the globe. Three of these years were spent in South America which takes up the bulk of his travel memoirs set down in The Voyage of the Beagle.
This book is based on a two-week cruise from Buenos Aires to Valparaiso. The photographs were inspired by Darwin's words as the author sought out the sights, sounds and cultures evoked by Darwin's original book.
The photos in this book are a glimpse of what can still be seen today. Darwin's words inspire a “let’s go see that” attitude, and enhance travel. His comments also inspire to travel to enhance horizons and discover other cultures. Become inspired to cruise South America and follow in Darwin’s wake. You will find his words still ring true when you explore the same places and culture. Even the armchair traveler will find much here to enjoy. Enjoy the book, enjoy the trip.
