Unexpected Extra Day

Saturday, 11 Nov 2017 | Views [831]

When I return to Chile, I have so much online stuff to catch up on! As Mark returned from work last night he warned me “you’re gonna have an extra day here,” saying there’s a 70% chance my flight will be postponed until Sunday ... Read more >

Shiralee told me yesterday that, if I’ve never flown on a Falkland Islands Government Air Service (FIGAS) plane, I’m in for a treat. This morning I woke up rather late after a terrible dream, and when I noticed how gloomy and dull it was, ... Read more >

Penguins & a Falkland Feast

Tuesday, 7 Nov 2017 | Views [701]

As my first time staying in the home of a Falkland Islander, I'd learn a bit today about how things operate in camp. A doctor makes a run in a plane every six weeks to camp settlements, and residents convene at a designated home. Those living in Fox ... Read more >

Fox Bay

Monday, 6 Nov 2017 | Views [952]

It was sunny and beautiful without much (by Falkland standards) wind today: a perfect day for walking, photography, and drone flying. If there's one place in the world that you truly need transport, it's West Falkland. Yesterday I told Critta that I ... Read more >

East to West

Friday, 3 Nov 2017 | Views [621]

Another gorgeous day I had in the Falklands yesterday. The weather has been brilliant for the past few days. I got to watch Keith and his farmhands move 13,000 sheep, more than six times the Falklands' human population, into the shearing shed. I remarked ... Read more >

Mt. Usborne

Wednesday, 1 Nov 2017 | Views [1320]

The highest point in the Falklands is what I'd climb today, partially in search of a geocache and partially for the novelty of scaling the highest point in a country. Though by no means Mt. Fuji, Mt. Usborne is no walk in the park. Derek, one of Keith's ... Read more >

Goose Green

Tuesday, 31 Oct 2017 | Views [903] | Comments [1]

Yesterday in Stanley the weather was sunny and gorgeous! I walked round in shorts and a T-shirt for most of the day and I flew Juliett, my drone, in the Falklands for the first time. After two nights in Stanley, it was time to make a run for "camp," ... Read more >

Gypsy Cove

More than five species of penguins can be found in the Falkland Islands. In the middle of Stanley isn’t the best place to see them but there’s a place nearby and I’ll get to that later. Last night I was so exhausted I slept in until ... Read more >

Falklands Cold Blast

Saturday, 28 Oct 2017 | Views [887]

Yet another destination of my dreams I’d check off my list today, and that is the Falkland Islands. At about the age of 6, I pointed out the Falklands to my mother and she said “you know, there was a war fought there once, and there are more ... Read more >
