And so my ‘dream it big‘ adventure to The Falklands, South Georgia and Antarctica started from the end of the earth, Ushuaia, aboard the Plancius, a ship operated by Oceanwide Expeditions. Down the Beagle Channel, we set sail for The Falklands and two days later we arrived.
We landed at Carcass Island first, where only one family lives. They kindly invited us to tea, although I chose to attempt a hike with some of the group. The weather wasn’t playing ball, yet we succeeded on the second try. Next we headed to Saunders Island, where we saw four species of penguins and a black-browed albatross breeding site.
More overnight sailing to arrive in Stanley, the capital of The Falklands, where I managed to set a few steps outside the port before being called back to the ship. The winds were reaching extreme speeds and we needed to return to the ship as quickly as possible (as it is dangerous to board the ship from the zodiac in high winds). We waited aboard ship, although in the end we said farewell to Stanley without an actual landing. Mother Nature reminded us that we are at always her mercy. Off to rock and roll at sea again and onto our next destination.

(Ps. Last week I shared a little of my secret soul project, however the tech gremlins didn’t include it in my subscriber email. Head over to my dear blog post and at the bottom you will find it: shine your light.)
simply sharing, Delicia
