Tak, tak and a thousand times tak!
You were bitterly cold, had a severe lack of night time and had a language best described as the Swedish Chef language.
Your people are kind and hospitable, greatly aware of yet unfazed by the beauty that surrounds them day after day.
Thank you for being the one place left in the Western World where people don’t lock their doors and they let their children play in the streets.
Thank you for your lack of “Warning” and “Keep Out” signs. Yes, if I want to wander around cliff faces, safe in the knowledge that someone accepts my ability to know when it’s unsafe, then I will.
Thanks for sheep, waterfalls, and oystercatchers, in no particular order.
Cheers for blessing me with a lack of mobile phone service and an absence of big name corporations.
I am pinching myself that you exist and if it weren’t for photographs and other little memories, I would almost think you were pulling my leg.
