Tristan da Cunha, UK

Posted on 7 January 2016 @ 3:19pm

Our journey across the Atlantic to Tristan has been exciting. The winds were on our side, getting us across quicker than anticipated, however the weather was not looking favourable for an early arrival at Tristan, and therefore we had to slow down. The maritime crew worked hard, checking the weather daily to anticipate a day that may allow for us to disembark onto the island. 

Fernando de Noronha, Brazil

The beautiful island of Fernando de Noronha, with its tropical vegetation, the small wooden huts, the kindly welcoming inhabitants, its blue waters, its beautiful beaches, and breath-taking sunsets was the perfect port to reach after the Atlantic crossing.  We had no port programme, but there were still a lot of exciting things to do on the island.
