Iceland – Idioms

Icelandic is a very old language – a Norse dialect from 900 AD or so. And it was spoken by vikings so you can bet it was full of connotations rated PG13 or higher. As such they’ve had lots of time to come up with little phrases that don’t translate directly to other languages. Our hotel ‘Grandi’ had a few phrases stenciled on the walls. Grammer translation is sometimes a challenge.
