Kollafjørður, Faroe Islands

My Introduction to the Faroes

Forrest Mallard

The most stunning place I have ever been in my life. The Faroe Islands are beyond beautiful!



A Quick Tour of the Faroe Islands

My LOVELY friend Sanna dropped me off at my new temp job in the village of Syðrugøta, and along the way, my amazing friend took many detours to pleasure me with some of the most breathtaking scenery I have ever witnessed.

There were times I was so overcome with the scene unfolding around me as Sanna sped through the fjords, that I had firmly gripped the dashboard, quivering and making small yelping noises, as my senses tried to compute if the intensely beautiful landscapes I was seeing, were actually REAL!!?? — I think this might have been slightly amusing to Sanna, but then again, if she has given other people this same tour, it is probably a reaction she has become used to.

When I finally made it to Syðrugøta, I was greeted by the management for the G! Festival, and I moved into my house, in this small little village of approx 500 ppl.

I’m in Heaven

Seriously… I think this might be it!!
