A Zambian and American living on Britain's most remote inhabited Island with our dog Skyelark
Another Good Day On Fair Isle
We didn't wake up this morning, we came to.
Set in the middle of the North Atlantic, 38km (23mi) from Shetland and 43km (27mi) from Orkney, Fair Isle is as far away from civilization as it’s possible to get in the British Isles. Measuring barely five kilometers across and two kilometers wide, the island is home to a tiny permanent population of just 45 people. In fact, it’s the most remote inhabited place in the UK.
Where Scotland meets Scandinavia and the North Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean, lies the Shetland Archipelago... We will soon be off on our Adventure-back to Fair Isle. Here is a look back at our first trip : Fair Isle, Shetlands UK Britain's most remote inhabited island. We flew in this morning (December 2020). It feels like we are walking into a painting. Think Norway meets Hawaiian islands and Father Time and Mother Nature have a field day. No man is an island, as John Donne wrote, but, north of the border, you can live on one. Scotland's. The Shetland's is good like that, with 15 inhabited ones to choose from. We are here in Fair Isle. Britian's most remote one. It feels like we are moving through paintings as the ever changing weather lights the landscape in unique and splendid ways. Thanks to the popularity of the TV Series Shetland, we have had it on our radar as places to visit this year. Of all the 115 islands in the archipelago, just a few- 15-
T he UAV can carry 100kg of mail of all sizes for a distance of 1,000km, and it was flown to our Fair Isle. It can fly in poor weather conditions, and if the trial is successful, the technology will be considered by Royal Mail. A key aim is for the autonomous flights to reduce emissions compared to current delivery methods for a low carbon future. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Ed Reif (@edreif)
"Burning body fat without exercising! Put me in coach." The Primal Blueprint Conditioning my brain and my body to accept, endure and embrace cold water immersion may be challenging, but the health benefits in both the short- and long-run are well worth it. Here is my story: I was thinking how our overheated Scottie dog Skyelark extended her tongue to generate an evaporative cooling effect in the South Carolina Summer heat. Then, Bam:I goggled it---that's how they stay cool. It's called cold thermogenesis. So here I am in the sub Arctic circle, on Britian's most remote inhabited island, Fair Isle, with all this cold water. Suddenly Wim Hoff, The Iceman gets pushed to my news feed and I read: A few minutes of COLD Water Therapy can dramatically accelerate the natural, homeostatic cooling process. Hmmm. tell me more....I went to his website . There it was written in ALL CAPS GRANDPA STYLE: OVER TIME, WE AS HUMANS HAVE DEVELOPED A DIFFERENT ATTITUDE TOWARDS NA
