Hiking the Faroe Islands
Per openly shared his passion, knowledge of the Faroe Islands with us. Because of strong winds and rains, we couldn't hike on two different days, but with his contacts and knowledge, Per was able to provide other interesting options for us. I very much enjoyed his sense of humor!
