An old waggon with firewood in Bringsnagøta, the Christmas Street in Tórshavn.
Inside the old shop Katrina Christiansen in Bringsnagøta. This is from the kitchen with two old stoves.
An old cash register.
More snow in the Christmas Street
Two girls sledding on their stomachs in garbage bags. You just cut some holes in a big bag, and you are ready to go sledding.
The old rectory in Sandágerði. The hospital priest lives here with his family.
And the last picture of today: Two women going for a dip in the cold water. The best tip against winter depression in this very dark time of year. The photo was taken at 10.30 am.
True vikings going for a swim on a beautiful snowy day in late November.
November light in Sandagerði and the island Nólsoy in the background.
I found this pattern on Istex’s website and I just have to show it to all my knitting and swimming friends. Check out this pattern for woolen trunks – and don’t forget to check out the cool, Icelandic, male models wearing trunks, socks, mittens and wollen hats.
This is the perfect Christmas present ;)
It is darn cold but very funny, and you get a real kick after a long day at work. I am not sure I will still swim in January but until now I love it.
