Falkland Islands (UK) ... Atlantic Ocean. Cool, strong winds sweep the Falklands year-round, restricting the growth of trees. Stanley is the capital city. The islands are a self-governing Overseas Territory of the United Kingdom, but have been the subject of a claim to sovereignty by Argentina since the British invasion of 1833. In pursuit of this claim in 1982, the islands were invaded by Argentina, precipitating the two-month-long undeclared Falklands War between Argentina and the United Kingdom, which resulted in the defeat and withdrawal of Argentine forces. Since the war there has been strong economic growth in both fisheries and tourism. The inhabitants of the islands are British citizens (since a 1983 Act) and under Argentine Law are eligible for Argentine citizenship, and are colloquially known as "Kelpers". Many can trace their origins in the Islands back to early nineteenth century Scottish immigration. The island's residents reject the Argentine sovereignty claim."

Lastly, people go there to work, whilst the Falkland Islands try ... Read the complete review

Malvinas for Argentina. Falklands for the British, and well, so we are talking about Falklands for the world. There's nothing there, a bunch of doggy people and sheeps, sheeps, and sheeps. Now because of teh British-Argentinian politic relations, its able to take a plane or a ship to get to the Islands from Argentina. But both kind of trips are not recomendable because it not a touristic place so prices are really high, the same happen with the accomadation. Maybe this is an opinion from someone that try it but never did it. But because of the inormation that i collected from argentinians, and english people from the navy, stay in Argentina mainland, ...
