So I have a crazy plan to go live in iceland for half a year say in 2014 because I need to escape my boring english life and have a fascination for anything northern and cold.

I just would like some advice and things.

Tthank you if you can help.

I "heard" its like Holland, and there is no ugly women there.

So if you are a strait dude, you might never leave.

Just warning you.

I was reading old National Geographic magazine, they had an article about Scot and Amundsen race to South Pole. One of the points in the article was that both men made plans on how to stay warm, but... the Brit had one idea, the Norwegian had a different one. Norwegian won. Since you are Brit, whatever you are thinking, put it aside, it aint good.

We took horses and hay to the south pole. The calories per kg moved was pretty bad.

Still can you name without Google the Norwegian expedition, or does Scott of the Antarctic come to mine?

Dont dance naked in front of Rekjavik town hall.

It is not a tradition.

Thats some useful advice.

Might want to consider what kind of work is available there. 6 months is a long time, and I suspect that it's not exactly average employment opportunities for some of us. Fishing maybe? Bartender? I know they don't have much in the way of trees, but if you're a geologist..

Ironically, for all I don't know a thing about the economy in Iceland, my family on my Moms side, in part, originated there. The other sides English, like my Dads family. I'm basically half and half, with a little more of one than the other, but not if you count the fact that I likely have some on my Dads side way back too. ..and then, there's the Irish I have on my Moms side from a very long time ago too.

I'm actually a direct-ish descendant of this guy according to my Mom, who has a passion for genealogy. On my Dads side, apparently it's Blackbeard, though I'm not sure how. None of it means anything as far as I know. Not anymore anyway.

..aside from the blood anyway; genetics being what they are.

Honestly, aside from the climate and the opportunities for work, I'm not sure what anyone can suggest.

..coincidentally, that's probably the only interesting thing about me. Lol
