A Deeper Look: The Lofoten Islands

The Lofoten Islands surprises me. Sometime you feel like you're inland in the Swiss Alps, with rocky mountains, green pastures, flowers blooming and the next you're in a land far away like England or Ireland, with grey cloudy skies, green lands, and old ruins, or from a distance, you could feel like you're in a volcanic island like Hawaii, high steep mountains that grows up from the ocean. However, you never do feel like you're in an island with an active fishing industry. It has been a pleasant journey with new friends and new experiences of culture and life. I'm sad yet glad to leave this place (mainly because of the cold weather).

The pictures are from a small village called Eggum in the Lofoten Islands.
