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.
