I have an idea

I have seen on other blogs where they do a Q&A thing and I was wondering what you all think about that??  I have gotten so many questions about my move, about Iceland, etc and I was thinking that maybe I would do a blog post answering your questions!?!?!  Whaddya think??  If you have something you want to know about....ask away in the comment section.  I think that would be a great way to answer the questions you all have :o)

I think that is a great idea. :)

You're asking ME if I have any QUESTIONS? That's like asking the ENQUIRER!!!!
What's the cost of living comparable to?
You really have to go out your door and take some pictures. I need to see some pictures.
if our most common foods are like pizza, hamburgers and fries and baked chicken, what would you consider Iceland's common dinners to be?
What major differences do you see in the way Icelandic people are vs. Americans? (Like, what are your boys noticing is strange/different?)
Do they celebrate any other holidays?
Are Icelandic men different from American men? How?
Is the climate similar?
Is the volcano affecting anything where you are? Did you see it from the air when you were flying over?

Okay...that's it for now...but, you know me...there's more where those came from...I have a TON of questions because before I met you...I knew NOBODY from Iceland.

Sounds like a great idea Helga! I love all of Pennie's questions!

Maura said...

How close are you to your family? Did that volcano effect your travels at all? As soon as I saw this in the news I thought of you and your family.
Is the schooling system similar? Will the boys have to repeat grades? Do you like your new place? Have you unpacked? Darn I'm nosy...:)

Mama M. said...

Yes!! Do it! I'd love an "Ask Helga Anything" post!

Okay, here's what I got:

What's Iceland REALLY like? Is it really green, and Greenland is really ice?

What's it been like for you with the volcano eruption? And, how the HECK do you pronounce the name of that volcano?!!

How far from the eruption were you?

How are your boys adjusting?

How are YOU adjusting?

What is "hot" in Iceland right now? Are the styles/trends similar?

What is the weather like there?

( don't hafta use all of these...although, I'm incredibly interested to know the answers!!)

Hope all is well with you and your boys!

I'd like to know the answers to all the above, but I was wondering how the economy is there, since Iceland has been having a really bad time since the recession? How are you getting by, you must have some savings to help out..Italy is having a hard time too, that is why I am asking. We have had to adjust our spending habits and find creative ways to scrimp.
