Remember davidx? He took a little break after his first 100 journals—for three years. Now he’s back with #101, having visited a place we don’t often hear too much about: the far-flung Faroe Islands.
See why he says they’re “wow and more wow” in his still-expanding journal Fabulous Faroes, from Tórshavn—the “rural city” that serves as the islands’ capital—to the mountains of Saksun. One of his most fascinating photos shows the capital’s grass-topped government buildings, where, davidx says, “It comes as quite a surprise to find yourself looking into the prime minister's office!” It’s no wonder; by the looks of the place, we’d sooner expect to find Bilbo Baggins at his hobbit-hole desk. Luckily, we love surprises—especially when they involve an IgoUgo member returning to write about an extraordinary place.
