Recently I've been slightly overcome by the need to be somewhere wild and outside. The outdoors is something that's always been around in my life. My parents are pretty outdoorsy, I've been on expedition and I like being in the mountains. However I hardly get there. Most of the time I'm stuck in the city too busy to move. Don't get me wrong, I love urban areas, and I fully believe you can have adventures in cities, but sometimes you just want to be somewhere truly wild.
Today, while browsing The Travelettes Guides and with a serious case of wanderlust, I came across an article about the Faroe Islands that really captured my imagination. The author wrote about how her friend had caught the ferry home from Iceland via these wild and remote isles. I love the idea of an overland (over sea?) trip that takes in both Iceland and the Faroe Islands. I went to Iceland a few years ago and it's an amazing place, I really regret not getting out and exploring more, and it's definitely on my to return list - I'd love to explore more of the island. I also really like the idea of exploring somewhere not many people think to go and the idea of a journey. Plus it's so accessible from London. Sadly, most of this year's annual leave is booked up (next week, holiday next week!! So excited!) so I'll have to make do with the pictures from last time, but one day. (added to the bucket list).
