Stanley, Falkland Islands

Arrive to the capital of the Falkland Islands, also known as Port Stanley and you'll find a coastal town worthy of a jigsaw puzzle. This quaint city is home to a small population (so few are the residents that the town's only "jail" can only hold thirteen people.) But it's a place big on things to see and do. Whether you visit the Anglican Christ Church Cathedral, the southernmost cathedral in the world, or look for penguins.
