Destination - Faroe Islands

Ershinta is taking us to the Faroe Islands today. Faroe Islands is the autonomous province of Denmark but when in the Faroes never ever say you are in Denmark!

Faroese is the national language, although everyone does understand Danish and English. The Faroese people are the descendants of vikings, but contrary to the popular belief that vikings are mean and gruesome, these people are extremely polite, soft-spoken and friendly.

One thing that makes this country unique is that there is no tree in the country! Food, therefore, is limited to imported greens and fruits...and of course, stuff that they do have here - lamb, and fish.

Since this destination is so unique, peaceful and beautiful I think it best explained by the following video. I've also included some posts from Ershinta for your all to read and comment on (one post talks about chocolate bread - how cool is that!).

All things Faroese

I am not a world traveler, researcher, writer or photographer. I have never been to most of the places I write about. I basically copy and past the information that people submit to me. All copyright is to remain with the featured blogger.

I can't guarantee that all information is accurate or up to date. As some experiences have happened in the past with some memories and emotions mixed in.

My posts are short and sweet, I can only give you a small glimpse inside the featured place. Knowing there is much more to a place than a few paragraphs, I will write about the same place multiple times if anyone would like to submit their view on it as well.
