Just booked the Andean Highlands and Galapagos, as they are now calling it, for Christmas 2012! We've been wanting to do this one for a long time, and were sort of hoping for this year, but had to wait to commit until recently, and it was full. So, we went ahead and jumped on next year while prices are still low (relatively! ouch!) and to make sure we get it. And now I get to enjoy a loooong time of anticipation, which is always one of the best parts! Tufbuf, thanks for all your pictures and reporting on the other thread, it definitely helped us make the final call. Especially since you've also done the Peru trip. We were a little worried the land portion would be too similar. But on the other hand, we loved the Peru trip so much, even if it was that would be ok. Anyway, super excited even more than a year out. Anyone else doing this one?
