Hi Eik■yrnir! Those are very fine pictures indeed. I specially like the airphoto of the 'Lagtinget' (red building). I have been sitting just there on the rocks many times, while I was thinking deep thoughts. (Much deeper thoughts than the politicians are thinking INSIDE the building.)

I was living in the Faroe Islands for 3 years, and I consider those years to be some of the best years of my life. Eventually I called that place 'my second Vaterland'.

I agree, it's but it would be made lovelier if it would not become so comercialized and have a rise of immigrants, like the mainland. I'd prefer the natural and beautiful North to stay that way, but unfortunately the times change.

Do you live on a farm? If so, that must be fun.

Those are beautiful forests. I have always loved the woodlands and trees. That is abvious because I named myself Eikthyrnir, one of the deers on Yggdrasil. But I have always wanted to live in a small cabin in the woods, somewhere isolated and live a pastoral life away from towns and cities and be true to the old ways.

That is great to hear that you are not a stranger to my home, and I am not a stranger to yours either, I consider Denmark to be my secound homeland. :)
For what reason were you living there, work? How long ago was this? Anyway, that is great to hear, comrade.

Wasn't the Faroe Islands a Viking settlement?

It depends what you mean by Viking, I guess. Most of our ancestors came from Norway or Denmark, the earliest of whom came in the 9th century, while the old ways were still much practiced. There was a settlement of Irish and Scottish monks on Su­uroy Island (literally "south island") and were eventually dispersed. Our history is not too different from our brothers in Iceland.

No I do not live on a farm, but I live in farm country; which keeps the area quite white, and moral ;) I love it here where I live. In the summer it is absolutely stunning, with hundred+ year old farms, and beautiful green rolling hills, it is much like southern England, or southern Germany. I would say it is most like Germany because the Amish (from parts of southern Germany) settled the area because it was a lot like home, and it is good for farming.

The Faroe islands looks beautiful. It would be a honor just to live there.

Here's my homeland. Far removed from the snow-capped alps of Europe, however.

A bit desolate I'd say.
