A faroese tradition has always been to DIY. Whether it’s knitting, sewing, crochet or something totally different most faroese people know how to do something. Today I was at work for the Faroese Homemade company – a community with members of all ages and from everywhere around the islands.
Now I think it is time for a giveaway competition huh?

On Friday me and John took two of my youngest brothers out fishing crabs. although the weather wasn’t really for it or the time of year for that matter. But they really wanted to so we gave in, we could at least try.
Yesterday Soul Made opened their pop up shop in Tórshavn. So me an john went for a look.
I love their new collection, especially the trench coat, navy blue and stunning!! Unfortunatly I forgot to take a photo, but I’ll see if I can find a photo online.
But john was so sweet to buy me a jacket and dress from last years collection. I love both and will for sure be wearing them tomorrow.

So me and Maria arrived safely to Svínoy with the helicopter, little did we know that getting home would be the hard part.
Upon arrival to Svínoy we figured that the smart thing to do would be to ask someone where to catch the ferry back to the mainland.

Little did we know that the sea weather around the island wasn’t that good and just kept getting worse. So we had to hope for the best, but expect the worst. And that we did!
