I finally got some time to go through my photos and material from the Faroe Islands – and from our day in Torshavn! Do here’s a small Torshavn city guide, if you’d wanna know where to go, when you’re there.
Brell Cafe, 9 Vaglið
The best coffee I’ve had this year!
Katrina Christiansen, 6 Bringsnagøta
The dreamiest waffles and hot chocolate.

Don’t hesitate to add something in the comments, if you know some nice places in Torshavn!
Once in a while, you kind of need to do something to work against the grey mood that comes with grey weather. For my trip to the Faroe Islands – the majesty of grey weather – I brought with me something that might just do that: told of weather appropriate clothes in bright colors, like that cute knit dress* and the awesome rain poncho from Stutterheim. Boom! Rain, rain go away!
Maybe it’s been three and a half days since I last sat here in my room, three and a half days spent in the Faroe Islands, but I feel like it’s been longer. The trip was great. Getting away to a tiny country with small towns, breath taking nature and a wind that literally can blow you away, blew that everyday feeling out of my head and body for a while. Great!
I went on this trip as a work trip: with the purpose of creating some content for the blog, that I wouldn’t be able to make here at home, assisted by my photog and sweet friend Kat. We did photos for a small city guide to Tórshavn, loads of video material for a small mood video and tons of warm outfits for winter. Prepare for some beautiful content coming up!
Aside from shooting one outfit after the other, working and walking around towns, we went on a gorgeous, but quite hard, hike along a great lake near the town of Midvagur. the wind was at at least 15 meters per second and a couple of hail storms blew by us feeling like needles to our faces once in a while. It was still gorgeous, though. All those small waterfalls that crossed the walking path down the mountain towards the lake and the view of the lake emptying out into the atlantic ocean in the horizon. Amazeballs.
I’ll definitely be going there again, though in a more summery month than November(the locals were like: a trip to the Faroe Islands in November? What are you thinking?)
Have you been there?
Yay! I’m back after a week under the weather with penicillin and doctor’s visits en masse. This means that I can finally get back to work(and other stuff in general), yay! Here’s finally, a week late, my photo diary from Roskilde Festival, where I borrowed a camera from Instax Denmark to document my trip in a more cozy way than taking fancy DSLR pics and editing them. All these are one takes, unedited and oh, I so wish I took more!
