  • Spring is such an amazing season with new life springing up everywhere. They are the only slightly bigger than a chihuahua and they’re curious as one too.

  • Skerpikjøt - A really delicious specialty of the Faroe Islands!  Skerpikjøt is fermented wind-dried sheep/lamb meat, whith a sharp distinct taste, which some compare to aged cheese etc.

Seagulls want to be in every frame. Some are friendly, and some are just territorial looking to show who is the boss in the sky. Luckily the ones I saw while I was shooting were just curious. Kalsoy is the one island you have to visit, and experience what the Faroe Islands are all about. This concludes my takeover and I hope you all enjoyed the images, and I can’t wait to visit these amazing islands again. This is @deftony83 and I am signing out. Always a pleasure.  #visitfaroeislands #faroeislands

  • NIELS RYBERG FINSEN (1860–1904) was a Faroese physician and scientist of Icelandic descent. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine and Physiology in 1903 "in recognition of his contribution to the treatment of diseases, especially lupus vulgaris, with concentrated light radiation, whereby he has opened a new avenue for medical science." In 1882, Finsen moved to Copenhagen to study medicine at the University of Copenhagen, from which he graduated in 1890. Because he had studied in Iceland before moving to Copenhagen to study, he enjoyed privileged admission to Regensen. Following graduation, he became a prosector of anatomy at the university. After three years, he quit the post to devote himself fully to his scientific studies. In 1898 Finsen was given a professorship and in 1899 he became a Knight of the Order of Dannebrog.

The Finsen Institute was founded in 1896, with Finsen serving as its first director. It was later merged into Copenhagen University Hospital, and currently serves as a cancer research laboratory, that specializes in proteolysis.

Finsen suffered from Niemann–Pick disease, which inspired him to sunbathe and investigate the effects of light on living things. As a result, Finsen is best known for his theory of phototherapy, in which certain wavelengths of light can have beneficial medical effects.. His most notable writings were Om Lysets Indvirkninger paa Huden ("On the effects of light on the skin"), published in 1893, and Om Anvendelse i Medicinen af koncentrerede kemiske Lysstraaler ("The use of concentrated chemical light rays in medicine"), published in 1896. The papers were rapidly translated and published in both German and French. In his late work he researched the effects of sodium chloride, observing the results of a low sodium diet, which he published in 1904 as En Ophobning af Salt i orgsnismen ("An accumulation of salt in the organism"). Finsen won the Nobel Prize in Physiology in 1903 for his work on phototherapy. He was the first Scandinavian to win the prize and is the only Faroese Nobel Laureate to date.

  • Happy Easter!
Gledilig páskir! 
Happy Easter!
Yesterday was my last day off on Monday.
Easter begins on Thursday with the Last Supper,  Friday long Friday (the day of the Ccrucifixion ) and Sunday the Lord's resurrection.
This time I spent on the island of Svínoy. The people of the village went to church and celebrated Easter on Sundays, and the children ate the eggs chocolate, (In eggs is nothing in it like an empty tomb) roll the boiled egg! It was overflowing with a lot of people on the island of Svínoy.
ハッピーイースター!
昨日月曜日が最後の休みでした。
イースターは木曜日最後の晩餐から始まり金曜日ロングフライデー(十字架にかかる日) そして日曜日、主の蘇りとなります。
今回はスイノイ島で過ごしました。
村の人たちは教会に行き日曜日には復活祭を祝い、子供たちは卵のチョコレートを食べ(中身はからです。空っぽの墓と同じく)茹でた卵を転がします!
スイノイ島でも沢山の人で溢れかえっていました!

  • ANDREA SÚSANNA ÁRTING née Rasmussen (1891–1988) 
was a Faroese politician and trade union leader. A supporter of self-government, she is remembered as one of the most active figures in the labour movement, heading the Havnar Arbeiđskvinnufelag (Tórshavn Working Women's Association) for almost 40 years.

In 1937, Árting was elected chair of the Tórshavn Working Women's Association which had been founded the previous year. Most of the members were women working in the fishing industry who found it difficult to take on responsibilities in the organization as they would have to take time off work. As a local resident, Árting could afford to be more independent and was not afraid to appear in public. She was therefore able to lead the organization with only short interruptions until 1977. She was also a board member of the Føroya Arbeiðarafelag (Faroese Workers' Association) from 1940 to 1958, thereafter becoming a lifelong honorary member.

Árting was an effective leader, fighting for better pay for the workers who earned far less than fishermen, especially in the 1950s. She took part in many critical negotiations, participating in a strike in 1951 which was successful in avoiding a threatened reduction in workers' salaries. In her later years, she also fought for equal salaries for men and women, obtaining success in 1977 when it was agreed that women's hourly pay should be increased incrementally year by year until reaching that of men in 1981.

On the political front, Árting was also active in pushing for Faroese national independence. Though not successful, in 1940 she was one of the first women to stand for the elections to the Løgting, representing Loysingarflokkin or Separatist Party. With the founding of Tjóðveldisflokkurin Republican Party in 1948, she became one of its most faithful supporters.

  • You often feel that you’re in the wrong place at the wrong time, or that where you are is completely different from where U <<WANT>> to be...🏡🌈🏝
At times this feeling becomes so intense, so overwhelming that it gets the best of you and plunges you into an existential dilemma...🤦🏻‍♀️
👉🏼My advice: when this happens, remember WHERE you were before this moment...!
Remember your goals & dreams, and how far you were from achieving them just two years ago...🚂🚊🚆
I’m sure this thought will cheer you up...🌤
And remember to always focus on the POSITIVE...💪🏼🦋
That being said, I still wanna be in👆🏼THAT👆🏼 secluded cabin instead...🤪🙈🤓
