City of books.

I’m totally going to be in Reykjavik later this year. So psyched!

And, yanno, for such a tiny, out-of-the-way country (it has a population slightly less than the city I live in, and one single airline flying in and out), Iceland’s tourism industry is surprisingly active: pretty much everyone I talk to in Australia (i.e. over 10,000 miles away) either wants to go there or has been there and really enjoyed it.

So yeah. Go Iceland.

Maybe the shark is really tasty?

Icelanders are among the happiest and healthiest people on Earth. They publish more books per capita than any other country, and they have more artists. They boast the most prevalent belief in evolution — and elves, too. Iceland is the world’s most peaceful nation (the cops don’t even carry guns), and the best place for kids. Oh, and they had a lesbian head of state, the world’s first. Granted, the national dish is putrefied shark meat, but you can’t have everything.

–Time to move to Iceland.
