  3. Matt January 12, 2011 at 11:59 am

    Glad to hear you made it. Any delays?

  4. That1Guy January 12, 2011 at 12:10 pm

    Colin over at http://exilelifestyle.com/ is also heading to iceland soon. You should check out his blog and even meet up with him if u can.

    1. Roosh January 12, 2011 at 12:23 pm

      It’s not that much colder than D.C., but it’s windier and darker. Sun came up at 10:30am and went down five hours later.

    Jay gatsby:

    Iceland is actually sub tropical and the winter high are 10C

    A lot warmer where I am right now. The 10cm of snow is pissing me off.

    good luck man

    Yea if you get bored read some Icelandic Sagas. They are actually quite entertaining and always contain some manipulative woman leading some man off to destruction.

    Have fun Roosh! 🙂

  15. Bernie January 12, 2011 at 3:31 pm

    Say hi to Bjork if you see her.

    When I was at Iceland, the sun never went down. It was daylight 24 hours a day. Strange but true. Right now you are in the dark season.

    The capital city is so small you can walk across the city in less than two-hours. Have fun at the public baths, you get to see some nudies there

  17. Timothy January 12, 2011 at 5:05 pm

    A good friend of mine worked at Travelocity a few years ago, and he actually talked up the Iceland packages. It’s definitely one of those interesting out of the norm type destinations worth seeing, even if it’s just to experience the odd day/night cycles.

  18. Chad January 12, 2011 at 5:07 pm

    How much does a trip to Iceland cost?

  19. Anonymous January 12, 2011 at 5:42 pm

    Icelandair flies roundtrip from DC/Seattle/whatever for as low as 400 euros roundtrip…

  20. Hamster January 12, 2011 at 6:49 pm

    The odd day/night cycles are common all over the world, not only in Alaska. Go to Tierra del Fuego in South America, Alaska, Siberia, Finland… anywhere far south or far north. Iceland isn’t as far north as Norway, Sweden or Finland, or Alaska. Awful destinations, though. So boring.

  21. Pepini January 12, 2011 at 9:33 pm

    2 days for da flag.

  22. tjuan January 13, 2011 at 2:04 am

    Can’t wait to hear about your iceland trip.. I’m planning to go this year, please post/write a trip report!!

  23. yohami January 13, 2011 at 2:46 am


  24. Steve Lurkel January 13, 2011 at 8:53 am

    Have fun, Roosh!

  25. John January 13, 2011 at 11:43 am

    Did TSA squeeze your balls? Or did you walk thru the radiation scanner?

    USA… “land of the free” *LOL*

    Enjoy your trip. Looking forward to your reports.

  26. Anonymous January 13, 2011 at 12:57 pm

    I’ve only heard bad things about Icelandic girls. The scenery is supposedly beautiful, but the girls might as well be American from what I hear. That’s pm;y coming from one source though. I can’t wait to hear your take on it.

  27. Anonymous January 13, 2011 at 1:27 pm

    what’s the point?

  28. Jabb January 13, 2011 at 4:36 pm

    Include photos in your posts or even videos of your travels.

    If you are doing travel updates, this is a must.

  29. Jabb January 13, 2011 at 5:35 pm

    Another thing: It is strange that Roosh chose to visit Iceland.

    It is a fairly expensive country to visit, COL wise.

    Hardly a smart choice for a budget traveller.

  30. DrG January 13, 2011 at 7:14 pm

    Bro, I don’t think you’ll have much success in Iceland. Lack of sunlight, very cold winter (outside Reykjavik), your dark looks, and finally complete lack of local language experience is gonna doom you.

  31. yohami January 13, 2011 at 7:41 pm

    DrG,as long as you are “the man” you dont have to worry about the culture specifics.

    Girls everywhere crave foreigner alpha men, and gather on the places where they can find them. I bet Roosh will be able to turn the “obstacles” you mention on his favor.

  32. Anonymous January 13, 2011 at 8:31 pm

    whats the pot up to ? i’m throwin’ in $10, less than 2 weeks

  33. Naughty Nomad January 13, 2011 at 10:36 pm

    Awesome, have fun mate.

  34. Solo January 14, 2011 at 12:05 am

    Take pics and vids or it didn’t happen


  35. Atlas Al January 14, 2011 at 7:13 am

    @DrG: you couldn’t be more wrong. Scandos love guys with dark features. The opposite is true as well (as Roosh has pointed out in some of his previous posts), that Latin women (usually with dark features) like guys with light features, ie blond with blue eyes. Roosh will pull in Iceland, and sooner than later.

    @Roosh: Looking forward to some insight about the Icelanders. They’re not quite the same as Scandinavians, but they’re similar. Have fun.

    Everything here is so wrong and simplistic. One truly wonders if this man ever had an education, and if he’s ever been out of America at all.
