Faroe Islands Scenery

  1. We spent a day driving around Streymoy Island and Eysturoy Island in the Faroe Islands. One afternoon we drove from Vestmanna to Eioi and then to Gjpgv and then back to Vestmanna. The next day we drove from Vestmanna to Leynar to Kirkjubour to the capital, Torshavn. (All those spellings have been checked twice, just missing several accent marks :wink:) Here are some photos since most folks don't get here.

    This little inlet has been made into a small harbor for the little townlet of Gjogv:

    Some of the nearby houses:

    Another sod roofed house, this one is in Leynar:

    The village of Killafjorour is seen in the fjord from the old road to Troshavn, That is Eysturoy Island on the horizon:

    I'm going to put Kirkjubour and Torshavn in separate threads.
