  1. How cool! Although, it was a bit weird of them to call it 'an island'... and mention the friends obsession... but still, I'm happy to see it mentioned. :D

  2. Hej/Hello,
    There was a documentary on Irish Television last week, 17th Nov 09, about Brian Kerr the Irishman who managed the Faroese team for a time. It was great to see the Islands again on TV and I envied Brian the chance he had to live and work there.
    I'm delighted to see there's a blog about life in the Faroe Islands and written in both Faroese and English.
    I was on the Faroes for a week back in 1992. The memories remain with me. It's great to be able to read this bilingual blog, cos it challenges me to try to understand the Faroese language. Being Irish married to a Swede bits of my other languages (Gaelic and Swedish) help me to understand.
    Keep up the good work!

    ps Have Irish monks played a part in the history of the Faroes or is that just my wishful thinking?

  4. Well well...The news reporter would be obssessed too if he'd been here! =P My friend has been reading my blog, and now she's got her boyfriend reading it too (& they both have never even been here yet!). She claims that they need their 'Faroe shots' at least once a week. The Faroe has that effect on people, and is good like that =D

    I'm glad you like the blog.. ;)
    I don't know wether Irish Monks have played a part in the history of the Faroes, or not.. It's said that they were the first people to live here.. But I don't know much more than that.. :(

    @Shinta
    Haha.. xD Yeah.. :P
    Hopefully, they'll come to visit you soon.. ;)
