Iceland Travel Blog with National Geographic
I am so excited to bring a new journey across the world to you! Stay tuned. The adventure begins shortly!
So, we are coming to the end of our journey very soon. Iceland is really amazing in so many ways. First, the people are so nice. The fish is delicious. The views everywhere are breathtaking. One thing we have noticed is that the clouds here seem different. While we know that the can't possibly be, I have never noticed so much "cloud sculpture" back home. Lastly, there has been so much to learn about earth and science from this trip. It is amazing that Iceland really relies heavily on magma below for heating and the waters for hydro-power. We could learn a lot from them!
Some shopping - and a big purchase!

Some New Facts About Trolls
I do feel like I am becoming a bit of a "troll historian." So far, nobody is getting sick of me asking about trolls. Did you know that trolls are very individual creatures? From what I gather, Icelandic trolls are very big in size. They range from "large" to full on "enormous." I guess that would be XXXXXXXXXXXL size.! Trolls are so big because they don't use up very much energy. They, too, rely on the volcanic nature of Iceland for their energy. In fact, they mostly reside underground. So, they are warmer than most because they hang out where the lava is molten! Also, they sleep A LOT! Like all the time! So, when they are done doing whatever they are doing - they just go right back to sleep! Nice life!
There are a few characteristics of trolls. They typically have very big noses. This is because they live for a very, very long time. Some troll shave horns, some trolls have jagged teeth (like fangs) that come out of the bottom of their mouths. Some, though very few, even have tails! For trolls, having warts on their face is a GOOD thing. They view it as a fashion statement. In face, they even gather up natural ingredients to help grow new ones as a fashion statement! While we might think these appearances are very, very scary, no need to worry. Trolls have very high sense of self-esteem and think that they are beautiful just the way they are! Everybody tells me that they are actually very loving creatures, though sometimes full of mischief!
