Stranded Jim flags ride to Cape for just… HOW MUCH?

Botanist Jim McIntosh, who was left stranded on Tristan da Cunha when he was bumped off the MV Edinburgh, has managed to find another ship that’s bound for Cape Town.

The good news, as revealed on his Tristan Travels journal, is that the captain can divert 500 miles to pick him up, to avoid a six-week wait for the Edinburgh to return.

The less-good news is that his fare would be a mere £30,000.

Hmm… tough choice.
