There’s something so incredible about visiting the Nordic Countries, I’m not sure if it’s the crisp air, stunning scenery, delicious food or just the cute and colourful little towns but I always leave them with a deep longing to return. The best part about these countries though is that there’s such a diversity in scenery and landscape here … Continue Reading

Yup, we’re in the midst of winter… frosty mornings, chilly winds and flurries of snow! However much you love winter, it can be a testing season, especially as the longer nights take hold. I’m all about embracing winter, in fact, the thought of a log cabin, roaring fire and plenty of snow is a total … Continue Reading

A guide to the Faroe Islands is always helpful, especially if it’s your first visit. Nestled in between the tip of Scotland and Iceland, this tiny island nation is one of Europe’s most picturesque countries to explore. The Faroe Islands may well look a million miles away, but it’s a lot closer (and more accessible) than you might … Continue Reading

After horse riding around the stunning Faroese countryside, we headed back to the hotel to ‘thaw out’. It was sunny but that wind still carried a chill that only excitement seemed to combat (you know, one of those moments where its only once you get off the horse you realise how cold you really are). … Continue Reading

Exploring the Faroe Islands is hungry work and so, after a rather busy day on the island, it’s easy to understand why all my thoughts switched right from sight-seeing and exploring straight to food! 🍜 Luckily, in Tórshavn (the capital of the islands), there’s quite a lot of choice for delicious food (Faroese or otherwise) … Continue Reading

Rugged Buttercup? Sounds quite contradictory doesn’t it? (Or perhaps this could be a perfect name for a new band?) In any case, that oxymoron is the perfect description for some of the stunning routes that take you across the, already quite dramatic, Faroe Islands. Much as we would have liked to explore a Buttercup route that … Continue Reading

There are so many amazing things to see in the Faroe Islands. I mean, where do you start. It’s a tiny archipelago that packs a hefty punch in experiences for us travellers. From a whole heap of waterfalls, more sheep than people and an incredible lake that sits on the edge of a cliff, the … Continue Reading

The capital city of the Faroe Islands is small, there’s no denying that. Though, don’t be fooled into thinking you won’t know what to do in Torshavn. There are loads to see and do!  Think of a European capital, any capital. It’ll probably be a global city like London, Paris, Berlin, or Rome? ✈️ I’m … Continue Reading

In the village of Gasadalur lies a waterfall you’ve no doubt come across on the internet at some point or the other. Even if you don’t realise you have… As soon as we hopped off the boat at Vestmanna, we decided to make the most of the free time before the next thing on our … Continue Reading

As you might remember, we were rather late leaving the cliff side lake of Sørvágsvatn and pretty much had to hot-foot it across the islands to Vestmanna where we had an island tour via boat. We made it barely on time (like with 3 minutes to go) although, the guy on the phone we’d spoken to, … Continue Reading
