YVY in Faroe Islands

RO: Sinceri sa fim, ne-a cam ramas gandul la canionul faimos din Islanda, Fjaðrárgljúfur, sapat meticulos de raul Fjaðrá, cu stancile abrupte si inalte si marginile acoperite cu muschi de-un verde ireal. Si fara pic de exagerare siropoasa, e unul dintre cele mai frumoase locuri pe care le-am vazut vreodata. Si nu ca i-am cauta vreun corespondent asemanator prin alte parti ale lumii, dar cumva in micutele insule ale feroezilor am dat de un astfel de canion, ce-i drept in miniatura (are doar 200 de metri lungime in comparatie cu cei mai bine de doi kilometri ai Fjaðrárgljúfur-ului islandez). Ascuns in capatul insulei Eysturoy, in satucul Gjogv de-l gasim pe toate cartile postale, pseudo-canionul este de fapt un defileu, un port natural de toata frumusetea unde doar pescarusii ce-si mai fac de cap invartindu-se de colo colo. PS: A nu va lasa inselati de apele linistite si de soarele orbitor, satucul si mai ales canionul dosit isi arata adevarata fata pe vreme rea, cand totul in jur pare sa fie complet apocaliptic 😀 Dar despre Gjogv vorbim mai in detaliu in articolul dedicat insulei Eysturoy (care urmeaza in curaaaaand :D), pentru ca momentan vrem sa va spunem despre brandul romanesc de genti, YVY, pe care cu siguranta il stiti deja 🙂 Doar este plin tot Instagram-ul de ghiozdanele haioase cu aripi de ingeri si alte accesorii. Si-atata ne sunt de dragi fetele care duc mai departe afacerea familiei lor (veche de mai bine de 40 de ani!), c-avem de gand sa ducem amuzantul acesta de ghiozdan inaripat unde-om vedea cu ochii!

EN: Honestly, we keep thinking about that famous canyon in Iceland, Fjaðrárgljúfur, meticulously carved by the river Fjaðrá, with its tall and steep cliffs and the edges covered in a surreal green moss. And with no kind of slushy exaggeration, we can say that this is one of the most beautiful places we have even seen so far. And not that we would try to find a similar correspondent in other parts of the world, but in these small Faroese islands we found such a canyon, though in miniature (it only has 200 meters long compared to more than 2 km in Fjaðrárgljúfur). Hidden somewhere at the end of the Eysturoy island, in the small little village of Gjogv that we find on every postcard, the pseudo-canyon is actually a gorge, a beautiful natural harbor where only the sea gulls are wandering around. PS: The tranquil waters of the ocean and the glaring sun might be deceptive, as the village of Gjogv and especially the hidden canyon show their real face once the bad weather comes in and everything looks almost apocalyptic 😀 But we’ll talk more about Gjogv in a detailed article about Eysturoy island (that will soon follow :D) as for now we want to say a couple of words about the Romanian handbags brand, YVY, which you probably already know as the Instagram feed is full of joyful backpacks with angel wings and other accessories. And we appreciate these girls so much for taking their family run business forward (it already has a tradition of more than 40 years!) so we’re going to take this funny winged backpack all over the world!
