I spent some time today reading the tour book I picked up. I've learned a lot already, and I'm interested in learning more. I think I'm going to pick up some (translations of) some of the sagas and some more modern Icelandic literature. I'm also thinking that I might decide to go back to Iceland in the summer, since it will be a completely different experience.
People reading this journal and hanging out with me can expect to hear a lot about Iceland and my preparations for my trip over the next 6 weeks. Today's Iceland fun facts: the drinking age is 20, and the age of consent is 14.
