      Another sea day. Another Bingo game. Another Bingo loss. But...I doubled my money on Roulette. Didn't represent my country too well in the first event of Ruby Princess Olympics. Perhaps things will improve in the next event. The Norwegian Sea was quite choppy, but the ship handled it like a dream. Quite smooth. The fog of the early day turned into sunny skies later this afternoon which bodes well for tomorrow and Iceland. Akureyri here we ...

      ... islands. Mind you, this is the view of a couple that love raw Nature. When we say 'exquisite' we mean: wild terrain, jagged mountain tops, steep slopes eroded to bare rock, scree hundreds of metres high, huge 'erratics' (rocks deposited by glaciers) adrift on the sides and floors of glacier-scoured valleys, and those impossible basaltic benches piled one atop the other all the way to skyline. The feeling induced 'elemental'. The rawness leaving us speechless ...

I mentioned that I sensed a level of reserve amongst the Faroese of my age that approached antipathy to outsiders. As Frida, the volunteer, was university educated and, from the preceding conversation, not at all insular, I judged that a sensitive observation could be aired without discomfort. ...

      ... now being built with grass covered roofs again. Old Torshavn has many houses with grass covered roofs, dating back to the 17th century. There was a major fire in 1673 and many houses were lost. Our trip ended with a quick drive through Torshavn, before we parted company and had a wander round ourselves. Being Sunday, the shops were mostly shut, which was a shame, so we had a drink in one of the harbour cafes before joining the tender to re-join the mother ...

      ... however. The site on which the original runway was located was very short and curved over the crest of a hill. To extend the runway to handle large aircraft, the valleys at each end of the hill were built up. As a result, on final approach, one second you are at 50 metres altitude, and, the next second, touching down. There is a displaced threshold, but the runway is still on the short side - and, as a wise old aviator once opined: 'runway behind you is like altitude above ...
