After passing through the final custom check which there was a dog there to smell your luggage for suspicious item, we were welcome by long awaited cool air with 6 degree pairing with extremely strong wind! It was still a very comfortable environment for me although with limited layer.
The first thing we gonna do were to walk for nearly 300 meters to the Rental Car center in order to grab 2 CRV cars that the owner already emailed the details to Hybrid. There were one CRV and Civic parked side by side without any other cars in sight within the parking area. The CRV car plate was exactly the car plate provided by the owner, but the Civic wasn't. We thought that someone might wrongly drive our car instead, hence without thinking much me and Hybrid just drove both of the cars over to the airport area to pick the rest of the folks along with the luggage. While we were doing the loading, suddenly a guy that washing a car next to the car park area drove a CRV and chase us over there mentioned that we were 5 minutes earlier than the committed time for pick up, and he was still washing the car for us! Finally we manage to get both correct car as per details now, and CRV definitely more spacious compared to Civic for our days here. Truly a funny scene to start our Faroe Islands exploration!

I took this photo, assuming these was our cars throughout the trip, I was wrong LOL!
I was one of the volunteer driver in this trip, and I manage to get used to it pretty soon thanks to my extensive driving experience during my US trip. We have a short drive around 7KM to Miðvágur to check in and grab our quick lunch before the subsequent plan. It took us sometimes to identify our apartment, and subsequently to figure out where the owner place the key for us, it was kind of like doing a detective job for that.
The apartment that we were staying for the next 2 days was called Jatnahouse, with great location just by the main roadside and spacious space inside the house. It was a perfect house to accommodate 8 of us. Since we were little in rush, hence we settle our lunch with instant Kimchi Maggi soup and heading out immediately.

A special island that caught my attention throughout the trip.
The distance to our destination wasn't too far away, probably just 18 KM of drive, hence we still afford to have a quick stop via Bøur village, for a majestic view over the famous sea stack of Dranganir. This was probably the best introduction of Faroe Islands for us, and we were just excited for the rest of the journey!
Great scenery which force us to stop by the road side for a better view.

The viewpoint was exactly at the car park area in the entrance to village of Bøur.
Truly a fascinating view, what a great way to start our exploration!
