Cuddly sheep, the murmur of the sea, and village life - pure relaxation

But this didn’t last long. She quickly got to know the sweet babydoll sheep and Lisa, who became her best friend. And what about Grandma and Grandpa’s little café with the yummy waffles, and all the horses, dogs, cats, birds, and seals? Nele soon realizes that life on her Hallig island is too busy for bad moods.
