Three-Years Ago (21-December-2014) — Falkland Islands

Gone to See Antarctica 2014/5 Day 6: Hurtigruten MS Fram visiting the Falkland Islands

The first place we stopped in the Falklands was Carcass Island. I was surprised to see palm trees this far south. It almost looks like the MS Fram was anchored off a Caribbean tropical island.
