Nanna,

You’re always shitting on Iceland, can’t you say something nice about it for a change?

Posi-Guy

Hey Posi-Guy,

Let me see what I can do. *Thinks.

Sure Iceland’s cold, but at least it’s expensive.

Nanna

Hæ Nanna!

What’s the best word describing Iceland for you? 

Best,

Wordsmith

Hæ Wordsmith,

The word I feel most accurately describes Iceland today is Costco.

Best,

Nanna

Hi Nanna,

If I want to make sure I see puffins on my next visit, when should I schedule my trip?

Puff The Magic Puffin

Hi Puff!

The best time to see puffins is in the winter time when they snuggle up to they cliff side nests. During the summer they spend their time out at sea and you have poor visibility so it’s best to avoid Iceland around that time if Puffin watching is what you’re looking for. It’s an idea also, to insist your tour guide help you catch then cut out the raw and beating heart of one of the puffins for you to eat. Otherwise they won’t respect you.

Best,

Nanna
