21.02.2018 — Faroe Islands

One of my favourite places in Faroe Islands was definitely the island of Suðuroy, but I also loved the little village of Múli in Norðoyar — where we didn't meet a single soul except for a very friendly black sheep.

With the last Faroese model we met, Bjørt, we decided to have our session in Gjógv and in Funningur, two charming villages by the sea in the Eysturoy region. I fell in love with Funningur — even the name in itself is just perfect, isn't it? In my opinion the most beautiful location where we took portraits. Not to mention that the cloudy weather enhanced the dramatic landscape around us so well!

Even if we spent 12 days in Faroe, I still felt like there was much more to see that we couldn't fit in our schedule and I would have stayed there much longer! The day we flew back to Finland, I felt very melancholy about leaving such a peaceful and friendly place. While writing this I am wearing my Faroese knit and, if I hug myself, I can still smell Faroe and my heart skips a beat because of all the vivid memories.

Call me crazy, but part of me still dreams about living in a small hut in a remote village, like Funningur, and perhaps I will one day. Though for now, I only know I will be back to visit Faroe Islands many times in the future!
