Sorry to have been away for so long, but not sorry at all about the reason – I’ve been on vacation, in Iceland.
Snowmobiling on a glacier.
Walking amongst (and I do mean amongst) the puffins and great skuas on Ingólfshöfði.
The look on my son’s face when he found out Icelanders eat puffin.
Bathtub-temperature swimming pools everywhere.
Sparkling cool waterfalls everywhere.
Seeing a blue whale fluke on a whale watch out of Húsavík.
The look on my son’s face when he found out Icelanders eat whale.
Hiking the lava fields near Mývatn.
Horseback riding in the somewhat-less-active-and-a-bit-older lava fields also near Mývatn.
The look on my son’s face when he found out Icelanders eat horse.
Never being blamed by anyone for having participated in the destruction of their economy. (Not that I personally did any business with the Icelandic banks – I didn’t – but they were pretty much all wiped out because of investments in structured credit products.)
Anyway, I’m back now. But I miss being there. It’s a marvelous country. Go visit.
