Dear Iceland, I Am Not Too Busy to Visit You

August 17, 2010

I haven’t been to Iceland, but I want to go, just because I freaking love their new ad campaign/traveller outreach program.

Have you friended Iceland on Facebook? You should, because it will make you smile and feel a happy, warm Icelandic glow inside.

Are you following Iceland’s blog? You should, because it’s like reading a children’s fairy tale about a magical, whimsical land, except this land is real, and it’s called Iceland, and it’s awesome, and reading it explains a lot of things, like Bjork.

(There’s also a more travel-oriented, less whimsical blog, if you want something more concrete to go by.)

Why am I so crazy about Iceland? They’re thinking about taking the usual dull, industrial, eyesores of electricity towers and turning them into giants, lifting and carrying power cords across the landscape.

It really doesn’t get cooler than that.

Go to Iceland. Hug a giant. Send me a postcard.


  1. Hate to burst your bubble, but these are only proposed… they are not real.

    But come to Iceland anyway, there’s plenty other cool stuff to see.

  2. Love the Iceland blog – nice find!

  3. I have always wanted to try the August half marathon in Iceland.
    Hopefully in 2011 I will be able to go!

  4. I Love the Way They Made The Power Lines Look like Sculpture. They Should Do This in The U.S.A . Here in Orlando Florida, Disney Has One Power Tower Shaped Like Mickey Mouse To Show Where the Disney Power Grid Begins and Ends You Can See it Along the Highway

  5. Hiking is a very popular means of travel, allowing you to choose freedom and flexibility, where they go and what to do, and keep costs as low as possible. Take a cheap plastic flip-flops. Thousands of people will shower the hostel before you have used to avoid, pick up anything by wearing flip-flops, bad showers, if you.
