COPENHAGEN/FAROE TRAVELOGUE – DAY 4 – FAROE ISLANDS – VIDOY ISLAND - VIDAREIDI

by Antonio Gil September. 21, 2018 1036 views

Viðoy is the northernmost island in the Faroe Islands, located east of Borðoy to which it is linked via a causeway. The name means wood island, despite the fact that no trees grow on the island; the name relates to the driftwood that floats in from Siberia and North America.

Pristine.

Clouds descend
to whisper secrets,
only the lands heard.

Mountains ascend
for wisdom but their ears,
the clouds covered.

Only for Vidoy island,
the Vidareidians,
these secret words:

You are God-sent,
each ray, drop, and sand:
You have no ends.

Pristine set, Angil. 
Thank you so much sparkling heart

#4 Heavenly! Beautiful moss-covered roofs, is that normal for this area?

We've seen grass roofs all over the place. They are often used as insulator. Thanks dear Ram

Wow! Dramatic topography, skies and water captured, so well in these! 
Is the causeway, connecting the two islands, a man-made bridge or a natural land bridge? 
Nice video & music to add to the stills of this fascinating destination!
Bravo!
