Two things I love about the Faroes and Iceland

When I was in the Faroes in 2003 I enjoyed the taste of Jolly Cola, a soft drink that is bottled on the islands (in Klaksvík). I have been to Europe, south of the Scandinavian peninsula, numerous times since 2003 and never saw it in Switzerland, France, Belgium, Luxembourg or Germany (yet miraculously I found my favourite Swiss drink, Rivella, on sale in Peking). So I have waited fifteen years for another swig of Jolly. I have seen Jolly Cola for sale in Copenhagen but it comes with a different bottle label.

Iceland is famous for its skyr, which is like a yogurt. My favourite flavour is pear. The brand in the photo is the same stuff you can get in Iceland.
