"the call of mail boat ST HELENA" Ascension Island by jorgejuansanchez
Ascension Island Travel Guide: 67 reviews and 226 photos
I just spent several hours in this island during the call of ST. HELENA ship on my way to Saint Helena Island.
It was a sunday and I went to the church, just for curiosity, since it was anglican.
I made a trekking to the mountains and in my way back I hitchhiked succesfully. Everybody picks you up at the first try.
I even entered a military base and nobody controlled me. It was my second visit to a military base (apart from Spain). The first one was in the Isle of Guam.
Saint Helena Island, with about 5000 people, is much more interesting than Ascension, with only about 600 inhabitants.
In Ascension Island they control the trajectory of the Ariane rocket launch from French Guyana.
There are regular flights to Ascension from Malvinas Islands (Falkland), and from Brize Norton, England.
To St. Helena there is only boat service (ST. HELENA). See my Saint Helena page.
The conditions on board where fantastic!
For details, please see my St Helena page.
- Pros:is OK for a few hours visit
