One year ago, I was right in the middle of testing fonts, layouts and design options. No doubt about the name and the content: My Faroe Islands. Anja’s blog. Pictures and stories about my second home. On 27 July, my website www.the-faroe-islands.com went live. By now, My Faroe Islands has a Facebook Page, a channel on Vimeo and - most important of all - readers from all over the world.
Canada. Italy. Australia. Austria. Sweden. Faroe Islands. Germany. Denmark. South Africa. Switzerland. Kenya. Qatar. Norway. Iceland. The US. Japan. Russia. Great Britain. Estonia. South Sudan. The Netherlands. Slovenia. Turkey. Algeria. Poland. Brazil. Hungary. France. Liberia. Portugal. And Finland. All of them taking an interest in the Faroe Islands.
Now that’s reason to celebrate! As part of the event, the grassland across the entire archipelago has been decorated with charming cotton grass. I myself have monitored the work, just as I had to degust the drinks that will be served. Gin & tonic. And our special Elduvík Mule.
The first guests have arrived already. Be ready for the fireworks. And for another year of My Faroe Islands. With new stories, pictures, encounters and adventures, on land and sea. There is much more to be discovered. On the Faroe Islands. And on Anja’s blog. Stay tuned!
