Luke Around The World – 20100205 – Stanley, Falkland Islands

The Falkland Islands, otherwise known as the Isla Malvinas. I’ve visited 8 times, and done a similar walking route 5 times. I’ve got to know the wildlife pretty well!

Which also means I have LOADS of photos to share. The repeated photo subjects will become clear when listening to the podcast.
