I'd like to come, Skarpi, and see you and Iceland again.

When I was 11, my mum won a competition and I went to Iceland for 4 days. Major memories are; choice of anything in a toyshop, visiting a village inside the arctic circle, swimming in baths fed by natural warm springs, and being sick in the taxi on the way to the airport in London!!

Mind you, it was 1959, so things might have changed a bit!!!!

Andy and ernest its gonna be held in 2010 so you have plenty of time to see if can or cant come , now what I have to do is to find a school house
somewhere witch they dont use anymore or another place , I have one, and its on a great historyian place , but we´ll see

1959 !! welcome to the future .

sailing to Iceland by Norræna shipline it should be from 30 to 40 hours
depence where you are going to sail from .
at least 30 hours from Danmark .

all the best Skarpi

Thanks, skarpi. Between the Norraena shipline and a rowing boat I was thinking more in terms of a bicycle-powered cabin cruiser - complete with driver, of course :-) Any offers?

However, I guess we'll put together a flying squad in time ...

To my addled brain, the air fare to Rekyavik from London is ridiculously cheap - it might be worth considering that if you plan on coming from the US - stop-overs can be catered for, even Micca may have cleared enough space before then.

That sounds really interesting, skarpi.
Its a place I've never been to.
What would be the sort of cost of transport and accommodation etc.
I would certainly prefer the second weekend in May 2010, ie Fri 7 to Mon 10.

Skarpi, my Icelandic is very poor and I did the best I could. No, not off the Internet. Perhaps in the future I'll use the Internet.

I promised to be good and not go off a-viking. My ancestors did that and it caused all sorts of troubles. My grandfather wanted to restart that old family tradition, but a rowboat on the Mississippi isn't quite the same thing as a longship in the North Atlantic.

That sounds really good. It'll be for me in the middle of the term so I just hope I can take at least Friday off. I'd love to come even if it's only for a weekend.
I've been in Iceland once and that was a great vacation.

Susanne, there's (well, there was ages ago) a ferry that stops on the Faroes for two days on the way to Iceland. That was the greatest vacation I ever had (one week in the Faroes and two weeks in Shetland).

I'm still looking for the lyrics to "Farewell to the Faroes" BTW.

2011 would even be easier for me, for then I'll be on permanent vacation.

Les, can't be true - Britain has cities of culture, even though Hull has not been among them so far. Time to apply!

Anyway, it took the Americans 200 years to develop a culture, so you should be able to do it in two!

Seriously, I think the exchange idea might be worth exploring! Unfortunately, Kiel is twinned with half the world, but not Reykjavik.

There is a Memorial plate in Hull of all those seamen who lost
their live here and also In Reykjavík .

There has always been connection between Reykjavík and Hull
