Matthew Workman – a journalist from Oregon – stumbled upon the Faroe Islands one day by chance and his curiousity drove him to investigate the place. His interest just grew and grew the more information he got. It led to the creation of a blog, he named Faroe Friday.

The Lord has blessed me with the most gentle, loving, and caring man whose heart is as big as the mountains of his homeland, with whom I’m sharing this adventure on earth with. If you want to know how life in freezing Atlantic treats this girl from the tropical land of Indonesia, grab a cup of coffee, keep reading and enjoy!”

… the Faroe Islands, for instance. Here is how Anina describes herself: “Hi, I’m Anina. I grew up in Denmark – a small country in Scandinavia.. northern europe … The thing is – I love nature, I love mountains, valleys and hiking in such wilderness. There’s not much of that in Denmark!

The reason why I live there, is that I met a wonderful man from that country.”
