Probably not. Because often the Faroe Islands are not even there. Or maybe you will see one or two little dots somewhere in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean. Between Iceland and Norway. North of Scotland. Yes. Now you probably found it.
Actually, the Faroe Islands are so unknown, that even Google didn’t know that they existed. So, something had to be done. Fortunately, Visit Faroe Islands had a very wise intern called Durita Dahl Andreassen. She invented sheep view instead of street view. Sheeps with cameras on top of them. She got good help from local entrepreneurs and a highly developed LTE telecommunication network, available in every corner of the islands. And then, sheep view 360 was a reality.
Flirting with Google in the international media has been a huge success for the Faroe Islands. Durita’s plan resulted in the biggest media coverage ever for a similar campaign. And Google came along. Google street view will soon become a reality along with the sheep view 360.
If you come to the Faroe Islands for an incentive in the coming months, you can help the Faroe Islands and Google to implement the street view….or rather the sheep view. Borrow cameras from Visit Faroe Islands or Atlantic Airways, and you make your own sheepview. How about that?
In the meantime, to get even more tempted, come to the Visit Faroe Islands stand number F05 at ibtm in Barcelona and see for yourself. In special sheep VR glasses you will be abel to see how the Faroe Islands look from the back of a sheep. Looking forward to seeing you there.
