My ancestors were 'øyfolk', 'island people'. Mine and my mother's last name is the same as one of the islands in the north of norway, and her parents lived out there. One of these island still belongs to my family. (It's probably more correct to call it an isle, hehe). Most of my relatives as well as me, have spent as many vacations as we could on this island, and this weekend a few of us was back to celebrate easter. Even without electricity and with an outhouse wc, it's a true paradise! It's sourrounded by very clear water with an amazing view out to the open sea <3
In the photo below you can see the mountain island Vega,
which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List :)
I do consider myself as one of the island-people too. As well as being a forest creature, I am a sea creature :) I wouldn't mind living on an island, slightly isolated from the rest of the world. But I've always respected and feared the Ocean. You could say I'm a mermaid happy to have her two feet safe on the ground :)
- Do you like the sea? Are you an ocean-person, a forest-person
or maybe a mountain-person?
