This human’s gone to heaven.
Many years ago, a friendly human named Neil, and his friend Buzz came to see me because they thought I looked like the moon. They did a lot of fishing on me. Then they went to the heavens, and the moon.
Bon Voyage, Neil Armstrong.
I have fifty shades of green for you to look at.

No that is not keysmash, that is a real word in Icelandic. Well kind of… In Icelandic you can create very long conjunctions of words. A simple example would be “apple tree”. In Icelandic you would say “eplatré” which is a conjunction of “epli” and “tré”. Conjunctions like these can generally be made longer. Let’s say you have a specific ladder only used to climb apple trees. This “apple tree ladder” could be called “eplatrésstigi” and if it were made of wood it you call it a “eplatréstréstigi”. I’m pretty sure nobody has ever said that word before, but it is a valid word.
That’s how what is often referred to as the longest word in Icelandic came about: “Vaðlaheiðarvegavinnuverkfærageymsluskúraútidyralyklakippuhringur”. The meaning of the word is: “Key ring of the key chain of the outer door to the storage tool shed of the road workers on the Vaðlaheiði plateau”. You could easily lengthen the word by being even more specific.
Awesome pic of the Glymur waterfall in the fjord of Hvalfjörður. Glymur (198m) was considered Iceland’s highest waterfall until a couple of years ago when a new waterfall emerged from behind a receding part of the great Vatnajökull glacier close to Skaftafell.
In a previous post you can see a different angle and read the tales of how Glymur got its name.
I miss Iceland ♥
