Trove Tuesday - Iceland

As I am researching for a forthcoming trip to Iceland I visited Trove to get some travel tips. The first description I found was from 1893.

I'll look out for that building, I wonder if it is still there. The remainder of that long article can be read here : http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article39484242.

We'll be doing a self-drive tour around Iceland. Hope conditions are different from 1928.

Pleased we'll be approaching Reyjkavik by ship in the middle of the day. I'll be out on deck with the camera.

In 1992 a South Australian exchange student recalled her time in Iceland.I may pass on the testicles. The article can be read here: http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article196297227.
