We arrived in Tórshavn the capital of the Faroes on the Island of Streymoy, which means ‘Island of Currents ‘ very early in the morning, but until customs come on to clear the ship, you are ship bound. Unfortunately we only had a short visit on these wonderful islands, four hours, not even enough time to do any shopping in the wonderful little capital city. So, no sticker with ‘I love the Faroes’ on it, in fact I didn’t buy anything Faroese, but I did make up for it in Iceland. Anyway, our trip started at 12.30 pm, so after a ships lunch, we made our way down to the dock side to board the coach….. the weather was freezing, I thought Amsterdam had been cold, but no, this was serious hat and glove weather.
We didn’t go through the city, we bypassed the wonderful coloured, green turfed houses and followed the sea for quite a while. We were going to visit the Island of Vágar, through a road tunnel measuring 3 miles in length and running under the sea which now connects the two largest islands in the Faroes and the capital Tórshavn.
This post is really a visual road trip, all the photos were taken through the coach window, so hopefully not too many shadows 🙂
