We tooked a day trip to Mykines because we wanted to see puffins. And the trip was a success. We saw thousands of puffins. All puffin species have predominantly black or black and white plumage, a stocky build, and large beaks. Their short wings are adapted for swimming with a flying technique under water. In the air, they beat their wings rapidly (up to 400 times per minute) in swift flight, often flying low over the ocean's surface. #faroeislands

Maybe the most idyllic place in Faroe Island is Saksun. Saksun is a very small village. Saksun lies in the bottom of what used to be an inlet of the sea, surrounded by high mountains. The inlet formed a good deep natural harbour, until a storm blocked it with sand. The old harbour become an unaccessible seawater lagoon, only accessible by small boats on high tide. #faroeislands
Faroe Islands capital is Tórshavn. It is a small picturesque town between the mountains. To the northwest of the city lies the 347-meter-high mountain Húsareyn, and to the southwest, the 350-meter-high Kirkjubøreyn. The town proper has a population of 13,000, and the greater urban area a population of 19,000. #faroeislands
Aarhus is the second-largest city in Denmark and located on the Jutland peninsula. It take three hours from Copenhagen to Aarhus by train. 315,000 people live in Aarhus and 1.2 million people live in the greater Aarhus area. There is a lot of old houses both apartment buildings and detached houses. Almost all of them was builded of bricks. A facade was red bricks and a inner court yellow ones. The reason was rational - yellow brics are cheaper.
A very nice place to spend a day is only a few kilometers from Aarhus city center. The park of deers. We have a sac full of carrots with us but deers were already full. In the park where were also wild boars. Luckily behind two fences. A route from the park to centre was beautiful and we saw nice looking houses alongside the sea.
