Hello and welcome to my website.
That is how my name is written in Icelandic. Þór is the name of the God Thor and halIur means palace and therefore the name Thorhallur as it is written in English means the Palace of Thor.
Me and my family live in Reykjavik Iceland and we are travelers. We have traveled all over Iceland and I know my country pretty well. There are so many wonderful places to see in Iceland and I am going to write about many of them on my website. I will also give the reader other useful information.
My family and I have done a lot of traveling. We have visited many countries and have enjoyed different cultures. I am a planner, so I like to plan my trips. I dig for information about the country I am visiting before I go. The best information I receive always comes from local people. Sometimes, I look for information in books, but today, I mostly turn to the internet.
I was an exchange student in Hanover Pa. in 1967 – 1968 and I attended South-Western High School. I still have lovely memories from USA. English is not my primary language so please, if you see spelling errors let me know.
I have been working as a computer engineer all my life, but now I am going to retire in a few months and this website will be like a hobby of mine when I no longer need to go to work every day.
I found Wealthy Affiliate when I started to plan my retirement and signed up for free to learn more about it. Before I knew it, I was building my own website. The training is very good and if you like to have your own website and blog about your travels or anything else, I suggest you have a closer look at what they have to offer and maybe even earn a little money on the way. You can visit Wealthy Affiliate here.
Facts About Iceland
I decided to create this website with valuable information about my beautiful country for our visitors, so they can plan their trips and enjoy their visits to Iceland.
Our guests have limited time, and they like to use every minute of it wisely. I am listening to their questions on social media, and I will try to answer most of them on my website. The better you prepare and plan your short visit, the more enjoyable your trip will be.
I am constantly adding or updating information on my site, and I love to get ideas and requests from my website visitors. If you have a suggestion about content, or if you want to correct me, please do not hesitate to send me a post or to leave a comment below.
Your trip to Iceland
When you land in Keflavik Airport flying with Icelandair your flight attendant will say, “Velkomin heim,” which means “welcome home.” I have not heard this in any other country I have visited. They will also say, “Welcome to Iceland,” and so will I. I hope you will pick up valuable information on my website, and I hope you will enjoy your visit to Iceland.
I need some feedback from my visitors so please leave a comment or a question below.
