Recollections from Iceland that fit into your pocket!
Iceland – a place that is known for striking contrast; the ice and fire, the infertility and dazzling excellence, the hip, thundering nightlife and the stillness of the highlands. The puffins, the horses, the mythical beings, the geysirs, the way of life … Iceland has a touch of everything.
THOR’S HAMMER – In Norse mythology, Mjölnir is the hammer of Thor, the god of thunder. Mjölnir was a fearsome weapon, capable of leveling mountains. In the 13th century Prose Edda, Snorri Sturluson relates that after being thrown at something the hammer always came flying back to Thor.
