"Snorri's travel" snorril's Profile
My name is Snorri and I've been around on VT for some time now. I live in Iceland, together with my girlfriend and our two daughters. We also have a dog called Tara, a Pekingese. Obviously we love travelling although family responsibilities seem to be slowing that down a bit now. Apart from travelling and all related to that my main interest is football, both playing and watching. And of course 'normal' things like reading books, watching movies and good music.
I work at Iceland's main hospital and I'm training for anaesthesiology. My family will relocate to Gothenburg Sweden this summer to further my training.
I've made quite a few travel pages during my time here but I wouldn't count any of them as excellent travel info, more of a photo album for my personal recollections. Obviously my knowledge is most thorough on Iceland so feel free to contact me with any question on Iceland, or any other place I've been to.

2008 - work-related roadtrip in Sweden, visiting Lund, Göteborg, Uppsala and Stockholm

As we are relocating to Sweden our travel for the next few years will probably be concentrated around Scandinavia and Europe. We´ll seize the opportunity to see as much as we can the years we´ll be living there. It is obviously far easier to get around from Sweden than Iceland. Before moving we´ll spend the summer traveling around Iceland and say goodbye to our country.
