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!
