Faroese national day
Few know where the Faroe Islands are, and even fewer know that their main national day is next week. But those who have experienced the week long celebration will never forget it.
The Faroes (Sheep Islands) are a small group of islands in the North Atlantic, currently under Danish jurisdiction. It was inhabitated by Vikings from Norway in the 7th century. From the very beginning, it was a democracy, ruled by the Thing. The official opening of the Thing was, and is, at St. Olaf's Day on July 29th. (Picture on right: Tinganes, the red buildings house the Thing)
So if you're planning to visit the Faroes, this is the time to do it.
If you're already there: Goda Olavsoku, I hope to join you next year!
