Anonymous asked: hi - we are planning to hire a motor home and do a lap of Iceland, can we stop and overnight anywhere or do we have to stay in organised camp sites?
It should be fine to stop in most places as long as you use some common sense and leave no mark.
Anonymous asked: Your picture is fantastic! We are going to Iceland and I am trying to navigate my preliminary itinerary. I see that this is close to Rerkjavik which is where we are staying but when I look up on Google Maps, they have about an hour and 1/2 away. Is that right?
Anonymous asked: I'ts always been my dream to live in Iceland. I live Canada. Do you have tips or suggestions about how I can go about living there? Also how well is the internet connections?
Check out some previous answers, in particular ones about studying in Iceland.
Internet connections are good, in fact there are many ideas of building major data centers in Iceland in order to make use of the cold climate and cheap environmentally friendly electricity.

Yes. In fact there are several times more sheep in Iceland than people.
Anonymous asked: Going to Iceland June 5th. I was hoping to do the Laugavegurinn trail; however, the road might not be open. If that is the case is it possible to do it anyway, and if so,how?
That is quite early for Laugavegurinn. Most hikers take the bus to Landmannalaugar, but the road usually only opens sometime in early to mid June. Even if you have the cash to hire a super jeep to get you there, the road might not only be impassable but closed off to prevent damage during the thaw period (muddy). If the road is open, be prepared for the first couple of days to be in snow.
You can however be sure that it is possible to get to the other end of the trail, Þórsmörk, in June. Þórsmörk by itself is a great hiking destination. You can do endless day hikes in the area and eventually cross the Fimmvörðuháls Col to Skógar.
Anonymous asked: hello again. I've been looking for relations between the Greeks and the Icelanders. There's not much that connect the two nations. I've just noticed that the University of Iceland (Háskóli Íslands) is using the Greek ancient goddess Athena as a logo. Do you know anything about it?
My old school and Iceland’s oldest school, Menntaskólinn í Reykjavík (Reykjavik Junior College) has a statue in the yard of the school’s mascot, Pallas Aþena. The school is also the only high school that teaches ancient Greek.

Anonymous asked: hi. Do you know how many Greeks live in Iceland? I guess they can't be more than 200. If I come, I guess I can stay for at least six months without having to be given a kennitala, right?
There were exactly 20 Greeks living in Iceland at the end of 2013 according to Hagstofan.
Both countries are part of Schengen, so you don’t even need your passport to get here and don’t need any permit to stay for 90 days. I’m not sure what happens after those first 90 days, but it should be easy to sort out.
