Enjoying a calm sea

We need 2 days to reach Port Stanley, the capital of the Falkland Islands/Islas Malvinas. During the first day everybody was still talking about South Georgia, about all the wonderful landings we all had. But today on our second day at sea we are more and more looking forward to our next destination – the Falkland Islands/Islas Malvinas. What kind of experiences will wait there for us?

The lecture team helped us with their lecture collection to sort our expectations. Later on all English speaking passengers had the possibility to visit the bridge. It was very interesting to see the very modern equipment on the bridge.

In the afternoon it was time to send some greetings to our family and friends at home via our blog. It is so wonderful what we can do with the help of the modern technic. Could you imagine how unbelievable it would have been if Amundsen could have sent a picture into the world directly after he reached the South Pole?

Most passengers went to bed early as everybody wanted to be fit during our first day on the Falkland Islands/Islas Malvinas.
