The Iceland guide

Latest articles

I have spoken to many people about living in Iceland. What is crazy is the fact the people don’t talk about ´living’ in Iceland but ´surviving´. This country does get it extremes in weather and landscape. Hurricane scale winds are the ´norm´, heavy snow, sand storms, sunshine, rain, earthquakes, avalanches and volcanic eruptions, sometimes everything within the space of 20 minutes.

Iceland is a volcanic island that has geological features that make it a particularly unique place to live. Thanks to government efforts to protect these unique surroundings and an abundance of renewable energy from geothermal to hydro, it is a very environmentally-friendly nation, coming in second in the 2017 Yale Environmental Performance Index.

In 2012, I was awarded a Fulbright/Icelandic Ministry of Education and Culture Grant to pursue a comprehensive study of the modern Icelandic language. I will be moving from Brooklyn, New York to Reykjavík, Iceland in August 2012 to start studying Icelandic as a Second Language at the University of Iceland. This blog is meant to document the language-learning process, as well as my experiences living in Iceland.
