If I’m candid, once I was first invited to The Falkland Islands to work with the tourism board, I used to be a bit doubtful. My preliminary response was to Google picture search the islands to get an thought of whether or not there can be a various sufficient vary of photographs to seize over two weeks and I have to say having fortunately now visited, that photos merely can’t do these islands justice.
There had been lovable closeups of penguins and different birds, cliche photographs of British flags and pink cellphone packing containers, and the darkish, miserable photographs of the 1982 battle. But what I didn’t see from that picture search was simply how numerous the landscapes are, how unbelievable the powder white sand seashores might be, nor simply how diversified all of the islands seemed given the Falkland Islands span a lot additional than I realised a map – I’m glad to confess that any doubts I harboured had been solely misconceived..
Of course, the one factor images can’t seize is how particular simply being on The Falklands Islands feels. With its lack of individuals, of web, and what looks like a scarcity of time shifting, it’s a genuinely totally different kind of journey.
So with these Falkland Islands images, I wished to indicate you all sides of the archipelago I skilled. Perhaps they aren’t my forty favorite images, as that would have been just a little too penguin heavy and I wish to spotlight a spread of various landscapes and locations. This is the Falkland Islands via my eyes and the primary in a severe of articles about travelling to this distant vacation spot within the South American continent, simply shy of the Antarctic continent.
