As you do

I was reading the Icelandic Review, as you do, and became acquainted with Jonas Sigurdsson. He is definitely worth sharing. I have no idea what he is singing, but I don't particularly care.

I enjoy reading this journal because it is the environmental flipside to Australia with novel ideas and solutions. Remember the volcano that errupted? Iceland's answer to the tourism drop was, Inspired by Iceland, which invites tourists to join Icelanders in their favourite activity. Of course, I am a sucker for this because I love the Couchsurfing and Wwoofers networks which bring all manner of people to our door allowing me some measure of vicarious travel.   OMG! Trawling Inspired by Iceland there are so many things I would enjoy; hotpools, bedtime stories, walk with an Icelandic sheepdog, language lessons, bushtucker, turf houses, cooking, seals & farms...and swamp soccer.... How do I afford a ticket to Iceland?
