Day 12 of my travels with The Clipperton Project around the Faroe Islands.
Today was our first day of sailing! from Vágur to Tvøroyri.
Look how happy we are :D
Leaving Vágur. This was a short, calm journey, and it left me so optimistic to my seasick levels… how wrong I could be!!
Docking in Tvøroyri.
Our first stop was the History and Maritime Museum of Tvøroyri which was kindly opened up for us to have a nosey around.
The building had an unusual history, it had been everything from a house, to a police station, to a doctor’s surgery, and now is a museum housing artefacts, photographs, and information from the history of the town.
Doctors used to really like hacking away at lady parts back in the day… :O
Traditional Faroese dress. The jewellery strikes me as quite Celtic in its nature. I wonder if there are any common routes there?
After a quick bite to eat and some stroking of a lovely fat cat outside the pub, we headed off on a walk around the mountains to the valley of Hvannhagi.
Briefly stopping to admire this buoy! Isn’t it fantastic?! It was huge!!!
Damn I look sexy in trousers and a hat……. :|
Majestic horse is majestic.
I’m not quite sure what this stuff was. It looked like liquid metal. I guess it must have been some form of oil seeping up from the earth. A fairy pond shimmering with magic.
I made it to the top!! And was rewarded with a stunning stunning view…
Accidentally dramatically edited photos!
That little line in the image above was the “path” we followed to reach the lake below. It was a teeny tiny path, no wider than one foot’s worth, and all over the place… a little treacherous! but worth it for the views.
A truly beautiful walk.
Johanna was flying a new flag when we arrived back to the dock!!
Yup. That is sheep’s wool!
We sailed away again this evening, heading for Hvalba.
I was really rather ill on this crossing. I hadn’t figured out my strategy yet. Seasickness curse!!! But I still managed to snap a few photos of our journey (selfie pre-sickness!!).
Safely docked for the night!!
See you tomorrow in our adventures around Hvalba.
