A church on the faroe Islands, close to the sea and surrounded by grasslands and mountain and of course the prevailing north atlantic sea.
The Vidareidi chuch is one of the most famous churches on the Faroe Islands. Close to it there are some very old graves from the Viking age being dug out by archaeologists proving that people have lived here for a very long time back through the bronze and iron age.
Driving through this area is quite fantastic and suddenly the landscape opens up between the mountains and the bay where the North Atlantic Sea comes in and the church really stands out against the wild country around with some pens where sheep are grasing.
Macedonia is a country located just north of Greece. It’s official name is still F.Y.R.O.M which means ”Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia”. The Greeks are contesting the name ”Macedonia” for the country because Macedonia also refers to a region which is partly in Greek territory still.
The ancient city Ohrid is located on the lake Ohrid shore. The lake is mainly located within Macedonia but borders also towards Albania so there has always been connections to Albania via this place. It is a wonderful place in the summertime, many Macedonians go here to spend some holiday time and although not so many tourists have discovered Macedonia yet it is one of my favourite countries.
I had the good fortune to travel to Macedonia many times in the past and work there with some great people that took me around. I would like to return for a holiday some day and stay a while more in the Ohrid area which is very interesting.
