The Faroe Islands

This remote outpost of 18 volcanic islands, occupying a lonely patch of the Norwegian Sea midway between north-west Scotland and south-east Iceland, is one of the few places in Europe where life still moves at a beguilingly Slow pace. This is not a destination for adhering to a packed schedule, ticking off the sights or topping up a tan. It’s a place to immerse yourself in the forces of nature. http://goo.gl/l1fviW
