There are 328,000,000 cubic miles of seawater on earth, covering approximately 71 percent of earth's surface.

By volume, the ocean makes up 99 percent of the planet's living space- the largest space in our universe known to be inhabited by living organisms.

Faroe Islands - Færøyene - selected photos

Play the high quality video version right here.

With only 1,5 day at disposal it is limited how much of these 18 islands making up the Faroe Islands in the middle of the North Atlantic you can experience. I could cover just 2 islands: Streymoy and a little part of Eysturoy. Still I think yhis is the best I could do in the short time. The travel was to last 2 more days but was shortened as the ferry line Smyril was either delayed or shortened by disposal sue to the weather situation.

The Faroe islands – Færøyene is a most special place to visit, and also including the ferry travel as I did from Bergen, Norway and out there was part of the experience.

Some autnum photos from September.

Bergen at the west coast of Norway

Some selected photos from a short September visit to Bergen at the west coast of Norway.

Here, history and long-standing traditions are as important as the city's vibrant cultural life. The Hanseatic legacy goes hand-in-hand with the status of European City of Culture (2000), both of which are reflected in the cityscape. In the global scheme of things, Bergen is a truly unique city. The main reason for this is its wonderful location and world-famous surroundings: the seven great mountains and the fjords go towards creating an international and yet completely idiosyncratic atmosphere.
