Hi there honorable readers!
The squirrel just got back from one of his bucket list destinations! I am sure that the photo above of a T-shirt I saw while there will have tipped you as to where that is …….. Iceland! So what part of Eyjafjallajökull didn’t you understand? Will the smart alecks among you please enlighten us all to its meaning in the comments? In this era of alternate truths, your explanation doesn’t have to be factually accurate but by Odin, make it interesting.
Yes, my missus and I went to Iceland, otherwise also known as the Land of Fire and Ice, the Land of the Vikings and more recently as part of Westeros and beyond The Wall (Game of Thrones). Oh yes we did, and we did it in the midst of winter too!
And how was Iceland, you ask? I quote my wife; “It’s Crazy Beautiful!” The people were fascinating and friendly and the food fantastic – there are lots of delicious options so you don’t really need to eat the famous rotting shark meat or the boiled sheep’s head if you don’t want to.
Before I carry on, I must thank Terry for inspiring me to make the trip and also her practical advice. Even though this is not primarily a travel blog, please bear with me as I will share about my experiences over the next few posts.
And, if you were wondering ……….. I did see the Northern Lights!
For now, I leave you with Asterix and Dogmatix as they show us that it isn’t so difficult to learn the Viking language.
