How we experienced Iceland’s history while traveling.
We traveled to Iceland hardly knowing anything about the history of this barren country.
During our exploration of Iceland a lot of its history became clearer to us.
Iceland is considered to be part of Scandinavia by many sources. The language has similarities with Scandinavian languages, but also has many words that relate to English and even Dutch.
All of this made us curious about the history of Iceland and of the influence of the volcanic activity on human settlement. Ice and snow made human settlement difficult, but also added to the attractiveness of Iceland.
