The Faroe Islands Podcast goes stateside.

Tollakkur Hansen, one half of the podcast-team, will go to the USA later this week. There he will do recordings from his trip, talk to people on the street, and take pictures, which will be posted here and on the Facebook fan-page.

He hopes to get an insight to a different culture. Coming from one of the smallest countries in the world, it'll be interesting to see, how a big country like the US, will affect him.

Entries from the trip, will start hitting the web at the end of next weekend, and he will keep steady updates from this journey of a lifetime.

Last month on the podcast, we featured a live set from Marius. Now he and his band are recording some of the songs they performed on the podcast. Here's a video of them recording one of their songs. Fun to watch... and to listen to.

Faroe Islands Review

This week we give a big shout out and plug to a site run by a dear friend. The Faroe Islands Review has information about the Faroes in English and is sort of a clearinghouse for photos, stories, and videos about the islands. It's also a good place to find old episodes of the podcast. They've got a full archive going all the way back to episode one.

So if you're interested in learning more about the Faroes, the Review is a good place to start.

This week's Faroe Photo is of Kirkjubøur. The village is considered the spiritual center of the Faroes. It is the site of three churches (one still intact), some of which date back to the middle ages. There's also a home that has been occupied by a single family for 17 generations.

It's a beautiful place.
