Want to break some ice in Iceland? As I am always encouraging black women to explore the world outside the United States, I finally get to discuss Iceland, first in a series about Scandinavia. Before you envision a permanent frozen tundra, be aware that the temperature in Iceland is closer to that of the US Atlantic Seaboard. Anyone from Maine to Virginia should be used to the winter weather and elements experienced with cold. Iceland gets all four seasons. And there is a warm current from the Gulf Stream so you are actually able to withstand the temperatures. There is a lot of darkness in the winter, but midnight sun brings light in the summer for long days.
