Saksun, Faroe Islands
Saksun Private Residence
Small homes like this in Saksun on the Faroe Islands were built with turf roofs to provide protection from the rain and thermal insulation.
A look at two Snunit (“swallow”) sailboats, navigated by Jaffa Sea Scouts, a maritime subgroup of Israel’s equivalent of Boy and Girl Scouts. These swallows set sail from the storied harbor of the ancient city of Jaffa, from which Tel Aviv has grown. Among the oldest ports on earth and ideally placed to fend off strategic attacks, the ancient port is drenched in bloody history. Today, it is home to local fishermen, a promenade along the Mediterranean, an inactive lighthouse, and a bustle of ambitious Sea Scouts.
