Hi Muzzleflash, glad to see you're still around.

Really glad. Missed you.


Thank you.
I've been quietly watching the threads lately.

I've been wanting to post a lot but I honestly need a better phone to craft a thread or to get my laptop back. This lil phone is crap.

I got a horrible but well paying job too, at some fancy overpriced cafe. Patience is a virtue I keep telling myself...

You're right, having patience sucks. Serving others keeps us humble.

I would not recommend staying here (Iceland) [except may for tourism purposes, since well, the nature is very beautiful].
If you intend on living here, be ready to pay four times or more for any service or product than you would in most other countries [we really need to squeeze every drop from the tourists].
Be ready to accept working long hours for minimum wage (and if you have an education- just above minimum wage).
Be ready for a 50 year old health system with doctors not required to re-educate themselves.
Be ready to deal witch crumbling infrastructure.
Be ready to face the fact anything will be near impossible to accomplish unless you "know somebody".
Be ready for a housing market that makes you a slave to interests for the rest of your life (literally), and if you want to rent, be ready to share it because 1 pay check just barely cover rent (and I would be considered "middle-class").
Be ready for crudely grown and overpriced domestic produce.
Oh, and did you know there is a currency embargo currently in effect? So money you earn is stuck here.
There is a whole lot of other problems, but I would be a bit off if I did not mention the un-imaginably corrupt government, that even when presented with clear evidence of their crimes and corruption, just laughs, spits (and defecates) on your face, and carries on.

Fun fact, almost every aspect of tourism in Iceland is exempt from tax, so the near doubling of our economy (due to the recent increase in tourism) ends up untaxed in the pockets of our rich. This is explained away as good with the "trickle-down economics" mantra.

But like I said, the nature is beautiful.


Regards,

Thank you so much for sharing those incredible photos!

I hope you do not mind that I downloaded a couple to set as part of my rotating desktop computer background. I love nature ... and I would never have imagined that Iceland could be so unique and different!

Stunning! Thanks!

Another awesome thread that I missed.

Ghost, your picture's are beautiful.

If I may ask? How much did it cost for you and your wife to travel and explore for the week?

I think it would be a very cool place to visit.
