FAROE MAPS & PLAN

Although I would like to travel the entire set of islands, I have limited myself to the most intense parts: Around the connected islands. As the trip is also a visit to friends - and it is a bit cold for me, it have to do.
Where the former 120 countries I have visited had their own Lonely Planet guidebook, this one has none, not even in Denmark or Scandinavia! Talk about unknown territory!
No doubt, this is an area, best explored by boat, car and foot. I rented a car....
