At Sea towards the Falkland Islands

Nov 07, 2019 - National Geographic Explorer

Our two-and-a-half-day journey back from South Georgia helped put everything we experienced over the past week into perspective. Dedicating what seems like an eternity at sea just to get to a destination is not a common occurrence in modern times where everything needs to happen “right now.” So fantastic and remote is the place we just visited that it deserves this extra time to force us to reflect—on our visit, how incredibly lucky we were to experience it in some unexpected weather, and just how lucky we are in general.
