In the remarkably expensive Færoe Islands we only found two things cheap - cups of coffee and ferry tickets! The latter are even better for those over 65! Not so many years ago it was necassary to get from Eysturoy to Borðoy by ferry - before the undersea tunnel.There can be no doubt the residents gained a lot in terms of time for inter-island travel but the views can hardly compare, although the have made the tunnel as attractive as possible with different coloured lights. At least it remains possible to get an idea of what is lost by this Kalsoy ferry, wending its way by narrow channels through huge mountains.
When the ferry arrived most of the passengers left after shopping trips to Klaksvik and it was enjoyable to watch them fanning out for their homes.
