Because I’m obsessed with Iceland, apparently.
1. The Iceland Phallological Museum
“The Icelandic Phallological Museum contains a collection of more than two hundred and fifteen penises and penile parts belonging to almost all the land and sea mammals that can be found in Iceland.” So says the official website. But we’d better go count to make sure.
2. Akureyri Golf Club
I don’t even like golf, but this is enticing: the northernmost 18-hole golf course in the entire world. Home of the Arctic Open, where you can tee off in full sunlight at 3 am!
3. The Althing
The Icelandic parliament is the oldest on Earth, dating back over a millennium. But more importantly, it’s called the Althing, which is without doubt my new favorite parliament name in existence.
Hákarl is fermented shark meat. You literally take a hunk of shark, you let it rot, and then you eat it. From what I hear, you only make that mistake once. But the locals swear it’s a delicacy.
5. Coke Addiction
Did you know that Iceland drinks more Coca-Cola per person than any other country on the planet? I’m not a big soda fan personally (bad for your teeth, etc.) but I still think this is cool. Rotten shark and Coke, cheers!
