A new trend in The Faroe Islands at the moment is to jump in the ocean and then nominate two other persons t do the same within 24 hours. If you choose not to jump, you owe the person who nominated you a ticket to the cinema. It’s been a real epidemic this Easter and especially yesteday there where lines of people at some places to jump in the ice cold ocean, just to avoid paying 85 kr. (19 dollars). I swore that if I got nominated I would pay the ticket and be done with it, but then when my brother nominated me I saw it from another angle. Everyone is doing it, it brings people together and gives them something to talk about- Even both of my in laws did it and they are in their 50’s. So for the sake of group pressure and not being a wuss I now can say that I have jumped in the Atlantic Ocean and Yes it is COLD!
John ofcourse had his big role in everything – you can see his video here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-9b4szI2FI&feature=youtu.be
Me and John just moved into an old farmhouse appartment in Æðuvík while waiting on our house to get done. And lucky for us the appartment is rigth next door to our house.
So I finally got my Instagram going and I really am trying to upload photos every day. So if you feel like it please follow me on there. My username is ByOlafsdottir .
It sure is beginning to look a lot like spring her in The Faroe Islands these days.
The sun has been out dor two day’s in a row now and even if it’s still a bit cold, I don’t think people mind.
Me and Lady went for a lovely walk this morning before work and I sure am happy we did.
Her are some pictures I took this morgin.
These pieces of art by Jórun Høgnesen are actually real rocks from the Faroe Islands – and they are quite heavy if I may add.
I am found of the Idea and think it is a fun way to make rocks and wool work togetter. They look so ligth and fluffy but then again they aren’t.
I LOVE this chair from Urban Living!
Saw it for the first time at an Urban Living shop in Copenhagen and I fell in love immediately.
It’s amazing minimalistic design, perfect disposition and just everything about it.
Also it is extremely comfortable and with the sheeps wool it’s perfect!
This is defiantly on top on my wish list and has been for a long time. It will fit perfectly in my (hopefully soon) new house.
