About The Images Used In This Article

This weeks image theme is ‘places we would rather be than our bedroom offices’ and in the picture below we can see the Faroe Islands. If you haven’t heard of the Faroe Islands, you definitely will soon. With its grass-roofed houses, rocky coastlines, and abundance of puffins, the self-governed group of 18 volcanic islands is basically one giant photo op. Mulafossur Waterfall might be the archipelago’s most famous site—the cascade is like something from a fantasy novel, falling over the rocky cliffs of Vagar Island to the ocean below, with the green hills of Gásadalur village as a backdrop.
