The Faroe Islands: A Magical Winter Wonderland

We were told that we had gotten lucky with the snow. After only three days on the islands, a snow storm blew in over the country, covering every bit of every island in a beautiful blanket of white. Usually it never stays for long on the Faroe Islands. They have snowstorms often, but it’s rare that the snow actually stays on the ground. It was…

Christmas Time in Kiel
