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.

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.
