    The Travels of Charles Darwin on the HMS Beagle in Sydney, Australia

    Tutubi, ever on the trail of famous people where ever he goes, is aware that the famous explorer and naturalist Charles Darwin explored Australia, then part of the English Empire, on board the HMS Beagle but little did he know that he would stumble on the path Charles Darwin passed while he was trekking to Wentworth Falls down the magnificent Blue Mountains of Australia.

    For history and science buffs, it's well known that Charles Darwin traveled on board the surveying ship HMS Beagle with extensive voyage stopping at many exotic places and took nearly five years. His voyage started on December 27, 1831 in Devonport (Plymouth) and ended on October 2, 1836.

    this post really is a just another (ho-hum) tribute to the 175th anniversary of his return to England

    His trip to Sydney, Australia also coincided with the exhibition of Darwin's travels to down under with exhibits at Australia Maritime Museum, which, unfortunately, Tutubi wasn't able to see due to limited time he has left that he used to meet old friends and an "inaanak" that he hasn't seen for years.

    Anyway, just snapshots of places visited by Charles Darwin in Australia with markers and pathways that declare he trudge along the path in 1836.

    trail markers lead to the path Charles Darwin took

    Charles passed by here in 1836

    Charles passed by this small waterfalls part of Wentworth Falls cascade

    Where did Charles Darwin's voyage take him?

    Cape Verde
    Rio de Janeiro (Brazil)
    Falkland Islands (near Venezuela)
    Callao Lima
    New Zealand
    Sydney (Australia)
    King Geaorge's Sound
    Cocos (Keeling) Island
    Cape Town
    Cape Verde

    Charles Darwins explorations and discoveries did not end in 1836, it was merely the beginning of his ground-shaking work: "Origin of the Species."
