Faroe Islands

Wild, remote, incredibly beautiful and stunning - a place like no other! This archipelago of 18 islands doesn't see many visitors, but I think it is definitely a must see. I can't wait to go back there again! These are some of my favourite photos from my 2009 trip. June 2015: I have just been back to,the Faroe Islands and added some new pictures for you to enjoy.

A view from the helicopter of the small island Koltur. (At least I think that's where it is - I can't quite remember.)  It shows a traditional Faroese farm.  As is often the case throughout the islands, the buildings have turf roofs.

After landing in the Faroe Islands I stayed overnight at the Airport hotel.  When I turned on the TV I was surprised to see this test pattern - it brought back memories of my childhood.  It's nice to know there is still somewhere in the world that doesn't have 24 hour television.  I couldn't resist snapping a shot of it!

I fell in love with this beautiful old cemetery in Tórshavn.  A must see if you ever visit this city.

Tvøroyri on the southern island of Suðuroy.  Like many villages and towns in the Faroe Islands it clings to small amount of relatively flat land at the water's edge and is a linear settlement.
