Europe 2019: Trip Notes # 12 

Iceland was great. Most of the guides were excellent which added to our experience. Now, it's on to the Foroe Islands - an independent country that falls under the umbrella of Denmark.

First Settled By Irish Monks And Vikings

License Plate - Not Too Many Cars On The Islands

Pretty Harbor - There May Be More Boats Than Cars

Harbor View And Our Ship

Local Election Coming Up - Too Many People Running For Office
True To Form - All The Locals are Cynical About The Politicians And What They Are Promising

Heading To Countryside On Narrow Road - Watch Out For Oncoming Cars and Sheep

Beautiful Canyons Carved By The Glaciers 

Fjord Galore - The Picture Has Sort Of A Mystical Feeling
Can You Imagine That Years Ago This Huge Fjord was Filled With Ice And Snow? 

                Not Much Here. Years Ago Most People Fished

                     "Summer" Means That It Is Not Snowing
                    Guess How Many Layers Arlene Is Wearing? 
                              Five - because its raining and cold!

People On Cliff - Bottom Right Also Helps With Perspective

                      It's A Long Way Down
