Homer author and adventurer Shelley Gill has reached Stanley in the Falkland Islands after a voyage to Antarctica and back. She asked her mates to write their impressions for her blog. More photos are online too!

My heart says I want to come back here and spend more time floating in the shimmering glow of the sea, the ice and the sky. My stomach says: where is some food?
