Here we go then!

This is my first blog which I have been coaxed into writing in order to get a few things off my chest. As a foreigner in a different land, you soon notice how local people can act in certain unique ways. This blog is dedicated to the country famous for Geisers, Glaciers, Fish wars, Björk and Magnus Magnusson, and the people who live here. I hope it's an enjoyable insight into Iceland and it's population.

This blog's name comes from the question all foreigners hear sooner rather than later upon arriving in the country. "How do you like Iceland?" is a knee-jerk question which is asked almost instinctively after finding out you are new to the country. I would go on, but i feel a blog post coming up about this in the near future.... I still can't believe no-one else has snapped the name up yet!

Feel free to leave comments, and or ideas for further posts. Just remember it should all be light hearted -I don't want to start another Fish war ;-)

Just an English guy who's been posted to a construction project in East Iceland. (You don't need to guess hard to find out which one!) Don't get me wrong, I love the place and the people here. As a foreigner though, you soon pick up little observations that seem bizarre or strange, but are not to the locals. The whole blogging thing just asked to be tried out really.
