Holiday

'Tis the season...this bell is new, I think, strung up just to the west of the official centerpoint of the city of Reykjavik (there's a plaque in the sidewalk in front of this yellow Restaurant Reykjavik that makes that claim.) I've never been to Reykjavik's very own Ice Bar, located inside this building, nor have I tried their fish buffet, but if you're into that kind of thing you can find this restaurant just across the street from the main tourist info center, the red number 4 on this map.

I love your blog. Being half Faroese I find it very interesting to read about the Faroe Islands, Iceland or Denmark. Especially from the aspect of someone from the USA.

Did you grow up with the language or was it something that you had to learn once you got there?

Thanks, Ogie. Very cool that you're Faroese (even half is cool!) I had to pick up the language almost from scratch when I came back here...it was tucked away in my rain somewhere, but it was a challenge accessing it again. Worth it, though!

Well that is encouraging for me since I know that I spoke Faroese when I started kindergarten. Even though that was 45 years ago. I just need to spend more time with family or get some more time in the Faroe Islands.

Although I love Iceland, the Icebar is a tourist trap. Do yourself a favor and just skip it. I spent 3 months in Iceland (from the US) and it was the most disappointing attraction.
