Iceland, A Rose By Any Other Name

 

Cool SignThere is a myth about how Iceland and neighboring Greenland got their name from early day explorers.

It was believed by some that Floki Vilgeroarson named the country in order to discourage the Vikings from visiting. As we depart Reykjavik I see more “Green” than “Ice”.

 

I am glad we did not fall for the old legendary trick to avoid “Ice” land and go to “Green” land instead. However, Greenland is on my “Bucket List” and hopefully I will return to Iceland in order to visit it.
