Dry Cod

♫♫ Faroe Islands Gjógv ♫♫

Gjógv is the most northern village on the island of Eysturoy, named after a 200-metre long sea-filled gorge that runs from the village into the ocean. Nominated by the Nordic Council for the Nature & Environmental Award in 2014, this beautiful quiet and well-preserved village is idyllically located, closed in by mountains to all sides.

With less than 50 inhabitants, all living in old timber-walled and turf-roofed cottages, Gjógv has an abundance of charm and appeal. Add to this some great hiking and walking trails that offer spectacular views of the North Atlantic and the surrounding islands and you won’t want to miss out on this special location.

The village includes a charming teashop, a guesthouse (Gjáargarður) and a campsite, and is located approximately a one-hour drive from Tórshavn.

The dried fish made me hungry - #3 is my favourite because of the perspective.
Just a play toy village and a very impressive "lonely mountain" ...

I love dry cod - in Portugal there are about 1000 recipes for this fish 🐟. Thank you dear Sigrid

Exemplary expressions
of what "whole new world"
was originally coined to mean.

Cod fishes and accessions
of new life, breaths unfurled
Oh! Life's finest cuisines.

So this is the heaven
we don't need to die,
nor submit to confession,
before we personally testify:
Gjógv exemplifies perfection ear of rice

I'm glad we do not need to submit to confession - I would not go to heaven for sure smile Kind and beautiful words dear friend
