I wrote in my latest post, that I was wishing a cool breeze so much, that I hardly couldn’t wait to get back home to the Faroes. And I was brought to a colder place by plane alright.. in Iceland!

Good old fog, my friend – you haven’t caused any problems in these islands for two months. Nope, you were patiently waiting for me to land there by plane, and so giving me a free vacation in Iceland. A good thing that Ialmost love flying more than anything else, so I enjoyed being in Iceland for a day. And by night, flying to Iceland in the sunset that was becoming sunrise at the same time was magical. Flying in those red and golden coloured clouds over an impressive sea-and landscape;…over the blue ocean, over green valleys and mountains and glaciers… it was so beautiful, that it gave me wet eyes!

Today we finally made it to the Faroes, and the happiness of being home also gave me wet eyes. Oh dear I am sentimental! But beautiful nature, happiness and a little adventure – is there a better combination in the world? Maybe, but not for me. So no wonder if emotions takes over once in awhile. 🙄

And by the way, one funny thing: on the bus on our way from the airport in Iceland to our hotel, a young girl was listening to music – she was listening to Roger Hodgson’s “Along came Mary”. What can I say other than that this girl has a very good taste in music? 😉 So I fell asleep with that song stuck in my head, and it has been playing in there today too – which reminded me of how time is flying. It’s almost two years ago that Roger performed in the Faroes – also after zig-zagging around the North Atlantic to reach those islands. But as we say in the Faroes: “if weather allows” – and I’m finally getting used to it.

*Sigh* Vacation in Denmark – that’s nice! I like it there, but the last few days have been hot. Really, really hot! Already at 10 am, it reached 30C/86F, and around 12-1pm, it reached 33C/92F. I’m not used to this kind of heat, and I’ve already changed clothes two times today because of the sweat running down my arms, legs and face. Luckily, the town where my parents live, is located at a very nice beach.. it takes less than 5 minutes to walk from home to the beach, and my boyfriend and I have enjoyed it there – and we took a long swim yesterday. That was nice, but one has to get out of the water sooner or later, back into the sun.

But tonight I’m going back to the Faroe Islands.. and I’m longing for it’s nicer climate. Nicer temperatures at least. Because the weather forecasts says FOG. Wich means I may be “lucky” to visit Iceland and Norway as well on my way home, because fog means they cannot land on the short runway between the mountains. Well, then at least I’ll have another North Atlantic adventure, and I’m not in a hurry anyway. But please.. I hope well get there in time tonight.

Oh, by the way – did I mention that I forgot, that I – in this kind of weather – needs to use a sunlotion SPF30? I used a SPF6.. so I’m being fried inside and outside so to speak. Well, I’m off to the kitchen, to have another litre of water. I can’t wait to get back home to that wonderful place in the North Atlantic, that I call my home.

I’ve spent the last two weeks in Denmark, and I’ll stay one more before going back to the Faroes again. This is the first time I see Denmark more as a place for vacation, than my home country. Maybe because my flight ticket says Faroe Islands-Denmark return, and not the other way round. And the last two weeks, I’ve traveled more around Denmark than I’ve ever done while living there 😆

A few days ago, I visited the most beautiful place in Denmark I’ve ever seen. And that’s a bit ridiculous, as I grew up not far away from that spot – how come I’ve never visited it? Anyway, the place is the island Møn, known for its 128m high, white cliffs and the forest Klinteskoven (the Cliff Forest).

 And of course, I took some pics (a lot actually!) and here’s some of them.
