A Diversion
Our Amazing Trip to the Falkland Islands

Today we were supposed to fly directly to the Sea Lion Lodge, but due to an unfortunate accident with one of the flight attendants on the last leg of our journey to Stanley, we were diverted back to Puntas Arenas, Chile. By the time we arrived in The Falklands later that day, the local pilots could no longer take us to Sea Lion Lodge. Of course, we were disappointed but the travel liaison at Mount Pleasant airport was most helpful and they set us up in the Malvina House Hotel that night and promised us an early flight to Sea Lion Island in the morning.

I used the extra evening in Stanley to walk around the town, where it seemed everyone was having a wedding.
