27 & What a load of old Wallabies… Seb: If only it was the 27th of April! Or Week 27 of the project! Alas. Either way, there are baby lambs ALL over the fields at the moment and they’re incredibly cute. It’s amazing, the contrast between the winter-slumbering greys and blacks and whites of Norway, and the vibrant, lively greens of England. I am beginning to see why people love England so much, despite how mediocre and temperate it often…

I’m going to run out of Norway-related gasms before I actually get there, I can tell. My flights are now booked, though — I’ll be departing England on the 18th of March, and I’ll be in Norway until the 4th of April. I have just one month to prepare for a rather impromptu excursion. I don’t have the gear — the clothes, the snow boots! — nor do I have anything other than a bunch of couches to sleep on…

My trip to the Faroe Islands was inspirational. It wasn’t a roller coaster of excitement. It wasn’t a sun-drenched getaway. I didn’t sleep a lot, nor did I feast on exotic fruits fed to me by sun-kissed maidens — in fact, all I ate was meat and potatoes. The Faroe Islands were educational. Eye-opening and and interesting. The Faroe Islands are unique in that they’re the smallest Western nation in the world. 45,000 people spread out across an archipelago of…

‘Don’t you dare leave the living room until it’s ready!’ I sat, transfixed to my chair, wondering what the hell they were doing in the kitchen. Occasionally there would be a giggle and then an acrid, fishy smell would waft over me. ‘Is that a testicle?’ It’s safe to say that I was a little nervous. ‘It’s a nice surprise, right?’ ‘You are so lucky to get this! It’s worth hundreds! THOUSANDS of pounds!’ I notice how they didn’t actually…

I’ll keep this one short as I want to try and get some proper sleep tonight (I finally have black bags over my bedroom windows!) The sun finally came out! At least it did in the north east of the archipelago. We used the webcams that are placed all over the country to check — in real-time! To capitalise, we headed up to Vidareidi (from which point we could see Muli, the abandoned town I photographed the other day) and…

There are lots of pretty photos in this entry. Feel free to scroll down to them if you don’t feel like reading. They’re not my photos though — but you get lots of those next week! For the rest of the week you’ll likely get more highly interesting (or perhaps boring) posts on the Faroe Islands. If you didn’t know, or you’ve only just discovered the delightfully British realm of my blog, I’m going on holiday on the 13th July…
