    Day 104: We see land, can we claim it?

    November 1, 2016 in Falkland Islands ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    The third day at sea and we had to enjoy ourselves untill the afternoon because from that moment on we would get to see the Malvinas Islands.
    We had a zodiac breefing which everybody needed to attend in order to get off and on the ship by zodiacs safely. Not a big deal for me, since I have enough zodiac experience but to get 120 people off the ship needs some organisation also. The plan to go off the ship today was maybe an extra if we would arrive early and with easy weather conditions. Both were not really the case so we did a small tour around the island from the boat. This part is called Steeple Jason and is located on the far west side of the Islands. We got really close and saw seals, birds, dolphins and some swimming penguins also. The Dolphins were pretty awesome, they were under the boat while we were still at open sea. Actually the whole day some animals were around in the ocean, it is really a sea with lots of life. The first land was in sight at 17:00 and we were to late to claim it haha 😉. The sunset was really nice and around 19:00 so we had more time getting to know the people after this 😉.
    Just as with breakfast, lunch and diner 😂 everytime meeting new people that's also fun and so far I am the only one on a world trip haha.
    In the evening Rob en me go through our pictures to filter as much as we can so the pile doesn't get to big. Most of the time we fall a sleep doing this haha. 😴
