Wasps were introduced to the Faroe Islands in 1992. A nest arrived along with the new football stadium’s turf rolls. One of these newcomers changed our shoot plans for today when it accidentally bumped with our model. Luckily it so happened that the swimming pool came to our rescue once more. The reception desk telephones and telephone catalogues were on fire, until one of the life guards- Janus T Olsen called his father and we had a winner!
Niels is a musician and a retired primary school teacher from Vestmanna (he must have been a very inspiring one as two of his kids are now teachers too). He plays the keyboard, harmonica, accordion and also teaches music. His latest gig finished last night at 5am but we saw no sign of those wee hours in today’s performance.
When he is not playing with his band Vestmenn, Niels often comes to Gomlu Hoyvik for cod fishing. What a sunny Sunday we ended up spending here, on our last day on these fantastic islands!
