Danbo in Faroe Islands

I recently visited the Faroe Islands with my brother and a friend, and it was exactly how I’d always imagined it to be. We were there during the mid of September, which is a bit after the tourist season, and there were hardly any people around. It often felt like we had the islands to ourselves. I’ll try to put up a separate post with details & pictures for each of the islands, whenever I find the time. Meanwhile, here are some pictures of Danbo in the Faroe Islands.

Thoughts from a Window sill

I’m leaving for my Masters in a month and figured I’d spend some time with my father before I leave. He’s off to work early and I’m home alone until dusk. I’ve been cooking, washing vessels, cleaning the house and trying to stay productive. All this work keeps me occupied and it feels like a lot of work sometimes. Until now I’ve never realised the importance of the fact that my mother had given up her career to take care of us and manage the house, and has been doing it for decades now. I sit on the window sill and contemplate a mother’s patience & perseverance, and the things she sacrifices, for her family’s well being.
