Ice Cream Land

8 05 2013

The Icelandic word for Iceland is “Ísland” (pronounced “EES-land”), which literally means Iceland literally means “Ice country”. However, in modern times, if you’re in a restaurant and you ask for “ís”, you’re likely to be given ice cream. If you go to the store and buy a bag of ice, it’s most likely labelled using some form of the word “klaki”. So in a way the country’s name could be better thought of as, “Ice Cream Land.”

It finally feels like summer, complete with an ice cream cone!
