After visiting Gásadalur on the Island of Vágar, The Faroe Islands, we retraced our tracks back through the road tunnel, to a little village we had passed earlier. Someone on the coach needed a pitstop, the driver said he would stop at Bøur and we could have 10 minutes……10 minutes was all I needed. I had spied a lovely little church, but the coach had parked at the top of the village in the car park, and the church was at the far end of the village. Halfway down the road, the surface became a sheet of ice, I was trying to take photos and stay upright at the same time. I did, but I never made it to the church itself, the road was just too icy and I still had to get back up, what I had come down. It was worth every slippery step, to get some close up shots of those grass roofs and that wonderful little church.
Bøur is a beautiful little village, that could date from 1350, on the west-side of Vágar. It has a magnificent view over the sea and the rocky islet Tindholmur with its many peaks. The village has charming old wooden houses and a traditional church from 1865. Once we were all counted back onto the coach, just incase anyone had decide to stay, we made our way to the airport, as the pitstop in the village had been closed, so we got to look at the airport as well. So next post, the airport and a wonderful church.
