Well, tomorrow morning I leave to go just outside the small town of Gimli, to volunteer as a counsellor at an Icelandic Language and cultural camp :prost It will be a week of children surrounding me, and I hope that I make it out alive! hahaha! The theme of the camp is the influence of the Vikings on modern times.

We are taking some swords and are going to have our picture taken holding them by the statue of Leif Erikson :D Well, I am anyway...pretty metal hahaha! :silly

All and all, I get to spend a week educating children on their European heritage :sing :viking Even if it is not the same particular heritage as mine I am still proud to do it :) Maybe I'll post some pics when I get back.

And to those of you who I have been emailing/pming, just don't think I am ignoring you! haha!

Awesome. That sounds pretty damn cool.

The last thing I did that even remotely resembled "viking camp" was a couple of years ago with the Norse Film and Pageant Society here in England, (I've been way too busy to go to meetings and gatherings for a long time though), during the Jorvik viking festival we did dozens of battle re-enactments, and had a living history village set up, it was great fun.

Have fun and tell us all about this when you get back
:metal

If you are dealing with young children you better take a Game boy with you or a T.V...
