Alasdair Ascends! Ascension Island adventure? #AscensionIsland

Trèanaichean, tramaichean is tràilidhean

Ascension Island is a small and incredibly remote island in the South Atlantic, forming part of the British Overseas Territory of St Helena, Ascension Island and Tristan da Cunha.

I’ve always loved remote and unusual places, especially Islands and would love your ideas about how I can get there!

Why do I want to go to Ascension Island?

  • It’s really, really remote. It is both small AND far away! It makes St Kilda look like central London and North Rona like Manhattan by comparison. It is approximately half-way between Africa and South America.
  • Charles Darwin visited Ascension on his famous Voyage of the Beagle and wrote all about it.
  • It is volcanic, red and most of it looks like the surface of Mars (or at least as Mars is portrayed on Star Trek).

Alba gu Ascension? #gàidhlig

Trèanaichean, tramaichean is tràilidhean

Chuir mi tagradh a-steach do cho-fharpais ‘bucket list adventure’ aig CapriSun an-uiridh gus feuchainn ri turas a bhuannachadh gus na h-Eileanan Fàclannach (Falkland Isles) agus Eilean na Deasgabhalach (Ascension Island)

Seo post-bloga a sgrìobh mi mu dheidhinn aig an àm.

‘S e bhòt a bh’ anns a’ cho-fharpais agus gus buannachadh, dh’fheumadh tu a bhith anns a’ phrìomh 10 a thaobh bhòtaichean.

Ciamar a chaidh dhomh?

Le taic bho mo chàirdean is caraidean, bha mi sa phrìomh 10 aig a cheann thall. Taing mhòr a h-uile duine! Chaidh an tagradh agam a chur air adhart don phannal-breithneachaidh agus chuala mi air ais gun do bhuannaich mi duais. Chuala mi mìos no dhà às dèidh sin nach do bhuannaich mi a’ phrìomh duais ach gum faighinn duais eile a bhiodh co-cheangailte ris a’ bhucket list adventure a bha mi air taghadh.
