    It's some years since my wife and I visited The Falklands Islands but I don't see too much information regarding them so I'll open up a new post.

    In oder to make the most of our visit I had pre-booked an island tour. On arrival we were greeted by our guide, Charlene, a born and bred Falkland Islander, with her sturdy 4×4, and were very soon heading off across the island in a South Westerly direction - heading towards Mount Pleasant and Fitzroy. Our first intended destination was Bertha’s Beach…

    Charlene knew exactly the places that were of interest to both of us and we had an excellent full day tour encompassing just about everything from the wildlife to the naval history...
