What Travelling in the Faroe Islands Taught Us


One of the reasons why we chose Faroe Islands as one of our travel destinations is the fact that we are curious travellers. Here's what we took home from our short visit to the relatively remote Faroe Islands.

Interesting Facts About the Faroe Islands

Here are some of the interesting facts of the Faroe Islands with a bunch of our findings and thoughts:

  • They consist of 18 big islands with many other islets
  • It is not a part of the EU (eventhough Denmark is) so don't forget your passport
  • Faroese Islands have their own government and are part of the Kingdom of Denmark
  • There are 49,000 people living on the Islands
  • The fertility rate is the Faroe Islands is currently the highest in Europe
  • The Islands still don't have any McDonald's outlets. Let's hope they keep it that way :)
  • Torshavn is one of the smallest capital cities worldwide
  • Their currency is Faroese krona which is 1:1 with Danish krona - they can use it in Denmark although the Danish might be suspicous if you try to do so
  • The Faroese language is more similar to Icelandic than to Danish
  • There is almost no crime on the Faroe Islands and therefore there is no prison
  • There are only 3 traffic lights in the Faroe Islands and they are all in the capital city Torshavn and quite close to each other
  • Have waterproof jackets and shoes :)
  • There are more sheep than humans
  • There are also much more Puffins (birds or tinyflyingpenguinbirds) than humans
  • It is not very touristy
  • It is common for people not to lock their houses or cars - don't exploit that! :)
  • The people are reserved, but friendly (or in short - Scandinavian)
  • Whale hunting is not only a tradition, it is a way of surviving, yet still controversial
  • The stores are relatively understocked with vegetables and fruits - for obvious reasons
  • The weather can change every 5 minutes
  • Don't go hiking during rainy times as it is very slippery in the mountains
  • It is not allowed to camp anywhere, like you can in e.g.: Norway (private property excluded)
  • The fisihing industry is responsible for about 95% of their export
  • There are not many restaurants and cafes on the islands. The service has some room to improve :)
  • It is very remote and tranquil
  • The roofs of the traditional houses are covered with grass. This serves as isolation
  • The highest mountain is 882 m
  • The condition of roads is top but there is no motorway on the islands (nothing wrong with that)

    In Dec, 2021, I invested the sum of 19.78 BTC with a fake blockchain impostor I met online, all the money I had saved up since 2014 got stolen just within a Month, my whole life almost crumbled, to crown it all my FICO score was so bad that I couldn't even afford securing a loan to help my kids, but everything became better after I joined a forum online where I met people testifying about HACK VANISH, a hacker who has been helping thousands of people all over the world. I decided to reach out to him via the following contact shared on the platform Text/Call/WhatsApp: + 1 (747) 293-8514, Email: hackvanish@ gmail. Com, they responded and requested for all necessary details needed in carrying out my JOB, to my greatest surprise my bitcoin was recovered and my credit report fixed, FICO score was boosted to 783 across all 3-credit bureau's, all negative items cleared just within 8 days. I can't stop expressing my profound gratitude to this great team of hackers, I strongly recommend them to anyone in need.

    I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.

    Review and contact the most reliable spell caster via website (https://isikolotemple.com)
    DR ISIKOLO is none to be compared in regards to having solutions to your relationship or marital problems. My name is Mirah Terrell. I have been battling with depression for a very long time knowing it's as a result of heartbreak when my boyfriend left me for another lady. I never knew he took the decision to be gone from me until months passed and I was unable to reach him. I had to contact DR ISIKOLO when I heard about him. He told me all that was needed to be done to restore the love and connections between me and my man which he did. The result started manifesting after 48 hours as he promised. This may sound weird but it is 100% true that he does not fail anyone. Worry no more and contact him now. email: isikolosolutionhome@gmail.com or text him via WhatsApp +2348133261196.

    i am super excited this very moment indeed Dr Dominion is truly a good man, i doubted him from the beginning but right now i can trust him with my all because he has put a beautiful smile on my face and change my life from struggle to millionaire, what would i have done without him, just few months ago i was struggling wondering what would my life turn into, now i am here sharing a wonderful testimony of my life, after i explained my whole situation to him he took me as his own daughter and removed my family from shame, he prepared a lottery winning spell for me with true sincerity and gave me a winning number to play and that was how i won that jackpot, Dr Dominion took away my shame, my pain and my worries, what a humble man with a heart of gold, thank you so much i am very grateful for what you have done for me, should you have any interest in giving it a try or going through any difficulties i think he is the right man to talk to and i believe he can help

I was confused and did not know what to do again, rather they got in contact with PRIEST WISDOM.He did a love spell that made my husband come back to me. We are now very much happy with ourselves. PRIEST WISDOM makes him realize how much we love and need each other .This man is for REAL and for good . He can also help you to fix your broken relationship. I had my husband back! It was like a miracle!
