    Day 106: Port Stanley

    November 3, 2016 in Falkland Islands ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Last day at the Falklands, we traveled a lot by night and docked the ship on the far east corner at Port Stanley inside their circled bay. We got to land by zodiacs again and when I was looking around in their city souvenir shop Rob plucked me out to join his Taxi. A great plan because I didn't come here for shops and cities. We went to Gypse Cove a hill on the other side of the bay. We decided to take a one way ride with the little tour woman. Did the site seeing what meant that we looked around for wildlife and the history artifacts over there. A sort of flag canon, beaches with mines and some shipwrecks. Not a hospitable place for outsiders, this is because Argentina and England still disagree about who is the rightfull owner of the Falkland islands. We walked around and back to the Harbor in 3 hours and saw many wildlife and took beautifull shots. The good weather made it even better and we arrived just in time for one of the last Zodiacs to the Ortellius. We did 18km and almost half was with the cab so we had good exercise also. We had lunch and actually I ate double pasta 😉. I went sorting my photo's and fell a sleep, woke up 2 hours later for a Lecture about a company that is supported by oceanwide and connects groups together to support the preservation of wildlife all over the globe. After this we had re-cap and diner and I stayed in the bar afterwards to go on with the photo's without falling a sleep. I managed untill the bar closed and even longer untill 00:30. Finally normal bedtimes again😉.Read more
