Árnafjørður

I didn’t see another human during the half hour or so that I wandered around the town of Árnafjørður.

My camper van was supposed to have internet. It did not. My phone was supposed to have internet. It did not. (Orange sucks BTW. Advertised as working in the Faroe Islands, Scotland, and the Czech Republic, it didn’t work at all in the Faroe Islands or Scotland and barely worked–at super slow speeds and only sometimes–in the Czech Republic.) I was supposed to be going to a festival in the Faroe Islands. It was canceled. So I had a lot of extra time in the Faroe Islands but no way to know what to do with it. I didn’t have a guidebook. All I had was Google maps.

I drove to every place I could see on Google maps, but since I didn’t have internet, I didn’t know what would be there when I arrived or what to do in these towns. However, the Faroe Islands provided a solution. In every town, there is a really cool map/town overview sign which I would read before exploring. An example of one of these can be seen in the Árnafjørður sign below.

Your options? Europe, Hawaii, or Hakone. I’d be happy in any of those places at the moment.

Kofu (甲府) is the first place I lived in Japan so it’s super nostalgic to me and always will be. Today’s photo comes from 2013, the last time I was there. Hopefully I get back there again someday.
