Gimli Canada 

This photo is taken in Gimli Canada 2007 at Íslendingadagurinn (Icelandic festival). Here I am in my icelandic national dress. I was amazed when I spoke with the older people who had Icelandic gradparents and had moved to Canada many years ago. These folks (that I spoke with) were born in Canada and had never been to Iceland. But they were still able to speak the language.

triskele, mac and guido, Elbertinum and 2 other people have particularly liked this photo

Þræl skemmtileg mynd Hafdís, þú sker þig alveg úr hópnum í búningnum, skemmtilegt að fólk skuli tala þetta erfiða tungumál

Takk Ester mín. Mikið rosalega var gaman að koma þarna og hitta niðja Íslendinga. Ég dröslaðist með peysufötin mín alla þessa leið til að vera í þeim á Íslendinga hátíðinni

Hafdís Eygló has replied to luphundo
Thanks :-) I am blushing :-))))))) I made this my self. I had to take a course to learn how to make it. It was a lot of work, a lot is done the hard way. f.ex. sawing in your hands without using a sawing machine. But I was very pleased when I was finished. I also have another type of Icelandic national dress ( also made it my self).

Hafdís Eygló has replied to Léopold
Canada is the second largest country in the world so it´s hard to explore it all! It is huge!!!!
Iceland is easier as it is very small and only 103.000 km3 :-) lol I am sure you will enjoy Iceland

Frábært að þetta fólk skuli halda íslenskunni við, án gríns :o) Flottur búningurinn þinn og klæðir þig afskaplega vel barasta :o)

Hafdís Eygló has replied to Ragnheidur
Það fannst okkur líka. Flestir höfðu aldrei komið til Íslands en lært íslenskuna hjá afa sínum og ömmu.
Takk Ragga mín :-) Ég er voðalega stolt af búningnum mínum og svo er annar á leiðinni :-) Já og það er 19. aldar upphlutur. Voða sætur. Set inn mynd þegar ég er búin með hann
