THOR: Vacationing in Iceland Like a Thunder God

Quick question.

When’s the last time you stood under a waterfall and hummed “Don’t go chasing . . .”?

Yeah, too long.

Toss on the 90s R&B for Skogafoss, a glorious Iceland waterfall that’s now on your bucket list.

You know Thor: Thunder-god, good with a hammer, ponytail ambassador. Well, you might have noticed this outdoor wonder in the Thor blockbuster – between Natalie Portman sightings.  And just in case you find yourself in Iceland staring at this natural beauty, here are three pieces of knowledge to drop on your traveling companion.

– “See those double rainbows. Well, that’s a result  of the abnormally wide waterfall spray.  It’s 82 feet, roughly.  (Shout out to Wikipedia.)”

– “You know the Vikings. (No, not Adrian Peterson.) Well the first viking settler in Iceland  Þrasi Þórólfsson, buried a treasure in a cave behind the waterfall. The treasure: still unfound. But a ring from the treasure chest is at the Folk Museum.”

– “The movie Thor, filmed here.”

Then proceed with TLC.
