Take Off to the Great White North

All Around This World map of Western Europe featuring Greenland

This week we complete our Western European and Nordic online-class adventure by heading way way WAY up north to visit Iceland and Greenland. Iceland, which for almost a thousand years was in Norse or Danish hands, became independent in 1874. Greenland which for centuries was also a Norwegian-Danish-ruled land, still has ties to Denmark but has been self-governing since 1978. Both places are chilly. Both places are grand, and they’re so different! Our upcoming blog posts will mainly introduce Greenland, but that doesn’t mean we don’t love Bjork.
