Yesterday we went for a drive outside of Saudarkrokur to look at the location of a few properties I may be interested in....will try and see them internally this coming week. Everything here is positioned in a picture perfect settings!
Views of a farm 16k's from SaudarkrokurView from another property with the island Drangey in the distance.
I have taste tested a few Icelandic traditional foods...managed to keep the smelly fish down and we had a rye bread desert that is soaked in water which was quite nice with cream and I love horse, have now had that curried, roasted, goulashed and stirfried. Icelanders like sweet food, they always sugar the mashed potatoes which is taking a little getting used to...they use very little salt and there is no salt shaker on the dinner table. However they do put salt in porridge and cannot fathom why we would want sugar in it. One that I really had trouble with was blood pudding (not dessert...this is a main meal) made from sheep blood, suet, rye and a little water all stitched up in to the lining of a sheep's stomach....plus you sprinkle with sugar before you eat. One mouthful was enough for Ross, Olga and myself...Sigga ended up ordering a pizza for us and Freyja the dog kindly eat our left overs.
