Monday Travel Update – Falkland Island Edition

Posted by on January 17, 2012

As I am writing this, I am somewhere in the South Atlantic between the Falkland Islands and South Georgia Island on the M/S Expedition.

We set sail late on Thursday through the Beagle Channel from Ushuaia. The ride thought the channel was deceptively smooth as I found out on Friday.

Friday was spent at sea as we heading towards the Falklands. The seas were very choppy and many people on board, including myself, were sick the entire day. I have an app on my iPhone that measures angles and I set it up to see just how much the ship was rocking. I measures a peak of 10 degrees and I’m quite sure there were times when it hit 11 or 12 when I wasn’t measuring.
