hvernig er það að fara þú?
Wenn ich diesen Satz bei dem Online-Übersetzer eingebe, den ich gefunden habe, kommt folgendes heraus: wie gibt man kuscheln zu fahren Sie? :-D

Ich hatte umgedreht eingegeben: "Guten morgen. Wie geht es Euch?". Da ist ja nicht ein einziges Wort richtig "angekommen" :-(

Ich habe bis jetzt noch keinen einzigen Translator erlebt, bei dem der eingegebene Satz auch richtig ankommt.

Well the second topic I did proceed after 4 years. I have been looking at the messages and the Icelandic on it. Does it have any links with Scandinavian languages....?

As far as the folktales concerns. I like to read them because it says something about communities where they were told. I collected a reasonable number of Ukrainian folktales.
As far as the Icelandic folktales concerns I sometime ago bought a book on a bookmarket with Icelandic folktales. It triggered me because I didn't knew anything about those. The book I bought is Hrafnkel's saga. it also contains some other stories. You made me remind that book.

Wow, cool.

Yes. Norse is the original Germanic language from which the Scandinavian and also German and Dutch developed from. Modern Icelandic is closer to Norse than to other modern Scandanavian languages. Icelandic has stayed almost "pure" for 1000 years, while all the other languages developed.

By the way, Conny = cora

Don't know this one.

Falsifying statistics ?
Don't mention it. Two days ago I said to some of our best friends I should prepare some food for myself and my best friends Ufo-G and GuidoTube.

Didn't know that the original Germanic language was Norse. Wow, this forum does contribute to my general knowledge

Not really. Well, I had a different reason for using a different nick for half a year in 2005.

I just found a video about Húsavík Whale Watching and the whale museum where I worked as a volunteer for 2 months in summer 2001.

And some Icelandic music: Maistjarnan and Krummavísur.

That's very kind of you. Thank a lot!

I just looked at this video. Spectacular to see those whales swimming. Where you there in the period that the whales came, did you see them. If so (which I presume) that must be a great experience? May I ask why Iceland and what did you do there as a volunteer?

Maistjarnan
Beautiful song which perfectly catches the pictures of the vid.

Krummavísur.
I like that kind of songs sung in the original language. What is Krummelavisur.

That's very kind of you. Thank a lot!
You are welcome

The coasts of Iceland and particularly the bay of Húsavík is full of whales all summer long. There are several whale-watching opportunities all around the country.

did you see them. If so (which I presume) that must be a great experience?

Unfortunately I suffer from severe seasickness. I went out with the boat only twice, but I got so sick that I couldn't enjoy the whales.

May I ask why Iceland and what did you do there as a volunteer?

In Iceland almost all people are in favour of whaling. The whale museum was set up by one of the few Icelandic opponents of whaling with the aim to educate his fellow country-men that whaling is not necessary and that whale-watching is a much better and more effective way of "using" the "natural recourses of the sea". The museum is in need of volunteers during the tourist season and I wanted to support this good cause.

My tasks were: museum guidings and lectures for tourists, selling tickets and souvenirs at the reception and tidying up the museum. Another task for the volunteers which I couldn't do because of my seasickness was guiding the whale-watching tours on the boats and taking photos of the whales (With the photos each individual whale can be identified and the pictures are used for a research programme on the migrations of the whales).

Unfortunately dispite the great sucess of whale-watching and all the effort of the people of the whale museum Iceland resumed whaling in 2003.

I like that kind of songs sung in the original language. What is Krummelavisur.

It's called "Ravensong" and it's about ravens having a hard time finding food during the winter.

Well I can imagine but what a pity. It seems you have seasickness or you don't have it. Have you ever tried Seaband. It is based on accupressure and I have some good results with one of my daughters who suffers from carsickness (http://www.sea-band.com)

Didn't know that. I always associate whaling with Japan.

The museum is in need of volunteers during the tourist season and I wanted to support this good cause.
Indeed a good cause to do so. Must be quite an experience. It has not anything to do with you profession then? It seems to suit!? But wat was first the good cause for whales or your love for Iceland?

Thanks for the translation. Maybe because it hardly change but Icelandic seems unfamiliar to me in contradiction with a language Swedish which I do not speak either but whered some words can be recognised.

Have you ever tried Seaband.

Yes, but it doesn't work for me.

No. It was a private initiative.

But wat was first the good cause for whales or your love for Iceland?

My respect for animals in general was there first. The volunteer work was a perfect opportunity to combine two of my compassions.

Maybe because it hardly change but Icelandic seems unfamiliar

Yes, Icelandic is quite different.

Very poor. If you don't continuously practice a foreign language, you simply forget it. If I take a look at what I have written in this topic four years ago, I can understand it well, but I wouldn't be able to create these sentences now without a lot of effort (looking words and grammar up).

Did you ever returned after 2001....

Yes, in 2002, 2003 and 2005.

Does anybody know the band Sigur Rós? And if so, what do you think about it?

E.g. Sigur Rós - Heima (DVDs).

This is not mainstream (!), be careful, but very interesting and relaxing to watch at. They often show the beautiful landscape of the island during their songs.

Just the main singer (male) sings at a very high level and is not so much my cup of tea. But the unusual singing somehow fits to this mystique kind of music. After listening to the DVDs for several hours I'm quite impressed about the content: It is so unusual, strange but meditative and interesting. The band travels all over Iceland, from village to village to give spontaneous concerts with all kinds of instruments, sometimes only stone plates of Iceland mountains but also electric guitars and drums. People gather in small town halls or in beautiful nature and listen to that mysterious sounds and Icelandic original lyrics. All people are sitting together, very young children and elderly people. But nobody makes a noice, even not the children, nobody smiles. All the people seem to get into a kind of trance, concentrated, enjoying this trip into dreams or past. You can easily fall asleep listening to that music! Not because it's boring but it's in harmony with nature and soul.

Sounds stupid but that's my impression - and I know thousands of discs of various artists. This made me order the great nature documentation mentioned in the next posting; the singing is done by my beloved Isgaard, a great German folk singer http://isgaard.com/de/ who is also doing projects with the great German artist SCHILLER http://musik.schillerserver.de/index.php .

(There are samples in Youtube available...)

Yes, I know them. Not my taste of music. It's boring in my opinion.
