In case you didn't know, this Saturday, 20th January, is World Penguin Day! What better way to celebrate it than start planning your own Falkland Islands adventure.

The Falkland Islands Government, FIG, has congratulated Gibraltar minister Joe Bossano on being awarded a knighthood in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours List for 2018.
