You'll be there now, I'm thinking.... [In reply to] Can't Post

Hmmm.... is the snow that's coming our way from the south west today anything to do with you? *Raises eyebrow*

Stay safe - keep your ears warm, and if you see any rings lying around..... well, you know what to do!

You might be right, i cant fully remember [In reply to] Can't Post

I just have a hazy recollection he said something about storms on the ocean there and him being on a ship.

As you say, certainly very far from us in the UK now! have you seen any photos of the place he is going to? It looks incredibly beautiful.

Penguins are amazing creatures. [In reply to] Can't Post

The ultimate in avian adaptation to a marine lifestyle.

Looks like a couple of king penguins in the webcam, if I'm not mistaken.

all we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us...

Four days on a ship, starting today, he said last week [In reply to] Can't Post

I marked the days in my calendar so as to send good wishes and a little prayer, against seasickness.

'Goodness gracious, you really are a messie!' 'Oh no, I'm not, these are all just mathoms...'

An Update from Daniel [In reply to] Can't Post

This came via our email group (take that Facebook).


Quote
Hello everyone :-)

I can't get on to TORn down here, so you can all have an exclusive update! I arrived safely on the Falkland Islands (after a minor delay on the Ascension Islands). The ship is delayed - we were supposed to leave yesterday, but we are now leaving ~8pm (UTC) this evening. The Falkland Islands are lovely - very barren, but still has beautiful landscapes. I've attached a photo - it's taken about 10 minutes to upload, so apologies if it hasn't worked. The crew for the ship are all Spanish - not very good when I can only count to 10 and say "hola" in Spanish! If anyone can give me a crash course within the next couple of hours that would be great. ;-)

Well, I must be off. I have heaps of emails to catch up on. I hope everyone is well.

Daniel



Oh yeah, here's the image he sent from the Falkland Islands:
