Can you imagine living ALONE on an isolated island, that’s freezing cold and windy all year-round? These two folks, John and Charlene, do just that!!!
Today, we arrived on the Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas), our second stop of this Hurtigruten expedition. The Falklands are an archipelago of 740 islands in the South Atlantic Sea — and we’ve landed on a tiny one in the Western part called ‘New Island’… It’s the most remote place I’ve ever been in my life, with some of the most incredible nature & wildlife I’ve seen (Rockhopper penguins, giant albatross, humpback whales, dolphins, black fur seals, wild rabbits and more). I felt like I was watching the Discovery Channel in real life!
I interviewed both John and Charlene about their lifestyles on New Island, why they decided to move here, etc — because I find it fascinating… And I think you will too…
Could you ever live in complete isolation like they do? I don’t think I could.
