Please use the link in the right sidebar instead of the link at the upper right side of the page. My developer didn’t activate the link and, although I know a little HTML, and know which code I need to replace where, there’s too much “php” stuff in the code so I’m kind of afraid to mess with it. I’ll get fixed when I can but, in the meantime, must ask email subscribers to use the link at right. Thanks!
Just found this cool post over at National Geographic, “Ten More Reasons why Iceland is Astonishing.”
I think this one is coolest:
“Because of its patronymic naming system, the phone book in Iceland lists folks by their first name, grouped by city or town where they live.”
Could you imagine that?
By the way, I subscribe to updates from IcelandAir, as I’d really love to visit Reykjavik someday, even for an extended weekend. The airline often has fantastic deals — although not fantastic enough for five people 🙂 Anyone want to come sit with the kids for four days or so? 🙂
Also, check out this map card of Iceland I received several years ago; the post also has a link to an awesome story of someone who took advantage of an Icelandic layover!
I like art cards — this one is thought-provoking, bringing me back to a time when men and women picked up everything they had and left for a better future, heading West — toward open land and the promises of a better tomorrow.
