... the captain was able to get the aircraft down in what must have been decidedly marginal visibility. On departure, we entered the cloud base at only a couple of hundred feet. Given the terrain around Vagar, the ILS minima must be significant and the crew must rely heavily on the high intensity approach lighting.

We got insights into how hardy these people are by watching preschool kiddies playing in the grounds beside our campsite. It was (of course) raining, the ...

... weather), so we've spent a bit more time than preferred driving to the little villages that huddle against the slopes or at the head/toe of a firth. This has not been a disappointment, however, as each village has its own charm. Travel is also easy as the road system is excellent and the traffic minimal. There are 600km of highway-standard roads across the archipelago. Tunnels have been bored under, and between, firths to facilitate access. The are few bridges, and the Faroese like ...

For Torshavn, the North Atlantic Drift, the southerly aspect of its harbour, and the siting of the town in a steep-sided valley protected by mountains from ...

We tried the Mulafossur Waterfall again and this time we could see it. It was a bit overcast but light enough to get a couple of decent pictures and enjoy the view. In the afternoon we had a wet and windy trip out to the Vestmanna Bird Cliffs. The cliffs were pretty impressive especially the places that the sheep managed to climb up to but the bird life didn't seem all that great; mostly gulls perched up in the cliffs and a few kitty ...
