We were extremely lucky to be able to land - it is the most difficult landing of the whole trip and often the weather does not permit landings. We had a lovely sunny day for it but very windy not surprisingly. It was really quite humbling to think we were at the bottom of the world where so many lives have been lost. We were able to climb to the top (176 steps) and walk the breadth of the island. An amazing day and experience. The views were wonderful and the monument in the form of a large relief sculpture depicting an albatross commemorating those lost at sea is very moving.
