While visiting the island of South Georgia, I slipped in a slurry of penguin poo and mud which resulted in a very painful sprained ankle. This left me unable to walk well when we pulled into Stanley. Instead of exploring the city I went with my fellow shipmates to a beautiful farm about an hour’s drive outside of the capital city. One of the highlights of travel is the ability to peer into the life of the locals, which is precisely what we were able to do when we visited Long Island Farms. The Watson family welcomed us in to their home with a beautiful spread of hand made cakes. They also gave us a tour of their property where they keep sheep, horses and chickens. This morning was just one small bit of a much larger expedition to the Falkland Islands and South Georgia with National Geographic. I’m heading back to this area in February 2017 and hope that you’ll join us! Below are some photos from our farm visit, and tune in later for more images from this most incredible journey.
