The Faroe Islands have some of the most beautiful roads in the world. It is impossible to describe what it feels like driving through the green valleys and up the mountains, or alongside the ocean, surrounded by steep drops and tall cliffs. It’s an experience like no other.

    But there is a problem. Unlike almost all other parts of Europe, we don’t exist on Google Street View. The Faroe Islands may be rugged and remote but this collection of 18 islands in the North Atlantic also provide some of the world’s most magical landscapes and it is time that this hidden Nordic nation is revealed to the world.

    Taking matters into my own hands, I decided to create my own version of Street View – Sheep View 360.

Dude. Thanks for the shout out actually. That's a cool video. I've never even heard of The Faroe Islands, but now I'm glad I did. It's beautiful as fuck. I'm bookmarking this place on the wishlist of places to live. Dala and I have joked about owning a goat farm, even though we'd have no idea what we're doing. That place would be perfect for that.

Edit: Now I've found myself down the all too familiar rabbit hole that is Wikipedia. I'm reading about folklorists and criticisms of The Aarne-Thompson classification systems.
