I used to only eat the tongue.. the other is not food to me.. but now i dont even like the tongue.. and i have stopped playing with the jaw bones lol… But mom and dad love svid and they eat much more than only the tounge.. my aunt even eats the EYE LOL.. i was so curious when i was little,, why would people eat the eyes??? so i tried it once.. i think i felt like puking lol… so, i’m not exactly a fan of eating svid, but i am interested … Video Rating: 3 / 5
Thorsmork is an amazing landscape. It is one of the most remote regions in south Iceland, only acessible to special vehicles. The valley is located between two ice caps and volcanoes, and glacial rivers run in between. There is a birch forest in the valley and much vegetation. This place is very mystical, here we are at the top of Valahnukur, which marks the center of the Ignimbrite formed by a old eruption 54000 years ago. The slope is about half kilometer down, and is absolutely awesome. There are many strange rocks, amazing caves, frigid rivers that flood erratically, icefalls, deep cannyons; no wonder the places here have names as Thorsmork (after the god Thor) and Godaland (the land of the Gods). There are many legends about elfs and trolls, and in fact, for two ocasions, while hiking for about 6 hours we heard strange whispering noises! Accomodation is possible in two small huts in the valley; you must bring food and water with you. The climate is mild but very changeable. To the north you can see the volcanic landscape of Landmannalaugar with many volcanoes, with a famous hiking trail of 3 days called the Laugavetur. Valahnukur is an easy peak, about 1 hour up. These were two very lovely days!
