When I wanted to combine a trip to Scotland with Iceland in 2007, the Faroe Islands were a logical and enticing stopover along the route. Rather irregular boat and flight schedules only allowed a 2-night stay. I was a bit apprehensive about the ferry trip from Scotland, as the ocean can be quite turbulent along that route. But luckily it sailed smoothly into Tórshavn, a charming little town full of colorful and grassy houses, and even music café’s too.
I arrived in a plethora of rainbows, in the evening the place was engulfed by mysterious fog, and the next day I woke up to brilliant sunshine. The climate was surprisingly mild and there were impressive mountains everywhere, stupendously rising up from the sea. You could almost see the Atlantic weather systems moving overhead.
