34 years ago I first heard about ….

34 years ago the Falkland Islands became a daily part of my early working life.  It seemed very far away but I remember feeling scared for the people living there. In May, I saw Minefield  at the Royal Court theatre. The play gave me some indication of the experiences of that time.

Fast forward 34 years and I am now preparing to travel to  the islands. There’s lots to do to get ready and I am starting to feel a mix of excitement and the odd tinge of anxiety.

Mostly I feel excited and look forward to seeing the wildlife, the scenery, the crafts and meeting people. So far everyone’s been very friendly and helpful. Now I need to get my planning and packing sorted so I make the best use of my time there.

At the time of writing there is a 3 hour time difference between the UK and Stanley so no reason for us to lose contact. Current time in Stanley
