I FINISHED MY ICELAND WEBSITE!

Several folks have been asking - I'm so tickled people are interested! My Iceland trip website is up, and, I hope, functioning. It should be at
http://web.mac.com/alicekasten/iWeb/Iceland/Iceland%20Adventure.html

and, my Galapagos website had a change of URL. It is now at:
http://web.mac.com/alicekasten/iWeb/Galapagos/Galapagos%20Photo%20Journal.html

Now, I can Sploofus again!

It looks like a fabulous trip!

Thanks for sharing.

These are great! Thanks, Bird! I've had less than a full day in Iceland and I'd LOVE to go back. The Galapagos shots are awesome. Thanks so much for sharing!

It's a great place, ain't it - delighted you enjoyed it so well.
As in some quiz I wrote whenever:

Iceland is nearest to:

Canada
Russia
Norway
UK
North Pole

You should have popped in!

Great website - many thanks - must learn how sometime!

Surrey - There is no trick to putting up a website. You get some web software, and substitute its pics of bikini clad beauties with pictures of rocks. You get to make a few decisions, but basically the work is done for you.

Glad you liked it - Alice

Those photos and the entire web site are amazing. Thanks so much for sharing them. Do you do any photography professionally for various nature or travel publications? I have a feeling that if even if I were to get website software (I didn't know before that even that existed) I couldn't create anything close to what you have done, but now I'm inspired!

Thank you for sharing your adventures with us....that tippy-looking bus was kinda scary though!! The ground looked kinda soft......you are so lucky it did not go right over.

I must confess I was expecting mountains though......I was quite surprised to see it is so flat. I bet they get huge amounts of snow each winter!

I really enjoyed the look on your face as you were eating that rotted shark, tossing down the Schnapps chaser: that was priceless!

You did a great job of putting the whole thing together: well done!

Very nice. It looks like it could be a great place to live if you could get food and something to drink. I will remember to pack some.

Thank you for posting the photos. I was able to live in Iceland for a year (1980) and it does not seem to have changed very much. It was a wonderful year, and we had some great experiences there. I especially remember a day spent with an Icelander friend and her mother. We were making blood sausages out of a mixture of sheep's blood and oatmeal which we stuffed into little hand-sewn bags made from the stomach of the sheep and which we sewed shut by hand. There was blood everywhere. We would bite the thread off as we finished sewing, and the blood on our hands got on our face and in our hair and on our clothes. It looked like a massacre!
Those Icelandic hot dogs you mention are usually made of lamb.
The buried shark is, of course, not really rotten. Burying it in the sand drains away the liquid--so it is closer to being dried. The texture ends up something like our "Slim Jims."
I have never felt so safe anywhere. The crime rate is almost non-existant. I remember there were headlines when some teens broke into a post office and took the equivalent of $14. I do not recall that there was a single violent crime reported that entire year.
I love Iceland. Thanks again for the trip down memory lane.

Zeedee- Thanks for your reflections. The blood sausage sounds disgusting, however - you may keep it! As for the low crime rate, our guide told us that the police do not carry guns - there is no need. I think they did have a murder a couple of years ago.

Glad you liked the website. I'm just thrilled it has had over 350 hits in just a few days (and they really weren't all me!!)

Alice,

I really LOVED that site. I thought the pictures and captions were inspiring. I have always ONLY considered vacation a place with a beach and a young man named Juan to bring me cerveza fria or margaritas all day.

Now I need to rethink my entire life's philosophy. Thanks!

Just kidding...WONDERFUL!!

Me.
