Don’t Ask Nanna: About Being A Tourist In Iceland

Published May 22, 2015

Hi Nanna,

What’s the worst part of being a tourist in Iceland?

Prepper

Hi Prepper,

Shit, I don’t know, you tell me! I’ve never been a tourist in Iceland.

Nanna

Dear Nanna,

I’ve been living in Iceland for five months now and despite the winter trying to kill my desire for life, I love it here.

One thing though, one of my neighbours – I don’t know who – has been mooching off my wireless. I’ve encrypted the wifi modem and created a password now but I’m still kind of pissed. I want to leave a note by the postboxes to complain about it but I don’t want to come off like an asshole. Can you help?

Thanks,

New Arrival

Dear New Arrival,

So, let me get this straight, when you set up your modem you created an open home network with no password? And your Icelandic neighbour/s took advantage of this?

If there’s free wifi, people are going to use the free wifi.

This is an unwritten rule of modern society, man. It’s a rule as plainly obvious to the human race as the person – who is already up – being obliged to get stuff for the people on the sofa or turn off the light before bedtime.

And anyway who exactly do you think we are? The most popular political party in Iceland is the Pirate Party.

Nanna

Hey Nanna,

Can you please try to bring back Free The Nipple? I miss seeing them on my twitter feed.

Woman Lover

Hey Woman Bleeeergher,

Yeah sure no problem, that’s why the old gals did it right? For your pleasure! Just give me a moment to rally all the women working for social change, I’m sure getting you material for your spank bank will be a top priority for them.

Nanna
