A few years ago I got the opportunity to stay on the amazing Faroe Islands for one summer. I do not know why, but I have special thing for islands. My father is from an island, and I have always enjoyed going there. Island life is special, you are more or less stuck there…for good and bad. It feels safe and excluded from the rest of the world. Faroe Islands are actually 18 different islands, but it gave me the same feeling. Only 50 000 inhabitants and on the island of Vágar, only 3000.
We arrived by plane through the valley with spectacular views over waterfalls and steep cliffs, and I instantly knew I would fall in love with this place.
My house for the first week was a luxury villa perfectly designed and equipped with Danish designer furniture, situated 2 meters from the sea. The bedroom with floor to ceiling windows gave an amazing view over the ocean.
When we drove to the house it was late evening, but still bright sunlight. As a Scandinavian I am used to the bright summer nights, but here, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, it is different.
During the months I stayed there I travelled around as much as possible, by car, boat, airplane and helicopter. Here are a few of my favourite photos from my favourite places.
