Kaitlyn Kostyo, one of our super animal caretakers, just returned from a fantastic science trip to the Galapagos islands! Kaitlyn joined the Big Creek Pet Hospital team in 2012 expressly to raise money so she could go on this trip. Now she is planning on a career in veterinary medicine. Before leaving, we asked Kaitlyn to write a blog and share her experiences. The following is her account.

Day 1: Leaving behind our families, our group of Berea-Midpark students and teachers made there way to the boarding gate to begin our trip of a lifetime to the Galapagos Islands. The only thing keeping us from beginning this trip was a 3 hour flight to Houston, Texas then from there a 5 hour flight to Quito, Ecuador in South America, and from there another 2 hour flight to finally land at our destination, the Galapagos Islands.
