Saksun, Faroe Islands
The ever so charming Saksun, Faroe Islands.
On the way Heini our comic cabby said the man who owns the property has been named the “Angry Farmer”, apparently he is not too fond of tourists roaming around on his land.
This what I read on google “he does not like tourists and he and other residents are at odds with the Ministry for Tourism for lack of support in helping to resolve problems with tourists. It seems that Jóhan has unilaterally declared war on visitors and Visit Faroe Islands”
I mean fair enough, he lives with his partner and child, his backyard and livelihood.
The cabby drove us down near the church, a young bloke in a truck that pulled in, I smile and waived making sure he could see my camera, he waved and smiled back, ah the universal “Smile”. So I guess if you stay on the path, respect his home he seems very friendly and welcoming. Isn’t the truth that no matter where you go are given to leave a place as you found out taking away memories and a few great pics?
Thank God for having my 3 lenses with me and clever positioning, no photoshop needed to remove the bobcat and soaked up the view, it really is spectacular and I feel very lucky having seen such beautiful location and greeted with a smile, I always do say that it’s the people that you meet along the way that is the magic of already stunning places.
