Life on the MS Nat Geo Explorer: Day 2

Thursday Oct 26, 2017

They let us sleep until 8 this morning. And warned us that would be the first and last day we get to sleep late. This was a day at sea as we made our way to the Falkland Islands.

Breakfast and lunch are always buffet. We lined up but the lines always went quickly on two sides of the central island. For breakfast there was always fresh fruit, cucumber (while it lasted – by day 9 it was no longer to be seen), tomatoes, bell peppers in green, yellow and red, cheeses, meats, lox, chia pudding (we tried it one morning and for us that was enough), potatoes, scrambled eggs or eggs to order, oatmeal, yogurts, granola and other cereals, and the best breads ever.  Coffee, lattes, cappuccinos and teas were always available, and hot chocolate! This was one fattening trip!  These pictures are from different days on the trip, just to show some of the variety.

Heading to the Falklands and South Georgia Island: Day 1

Leaving Buenos Aires

Wake-up call was at 545.  And thus the trip began. We all gathered for breakfast in the Sofitel hotel. You could feel the excitement and anticipation. We were off on a National Geographic (Nat Geo for short) trip to the Falklands (or Islas Malvinas as the Argentinians call it – more on this later) and South Georgia Island. A place people say is one of the most beautiful in the world.
