    Oddi, Home of the Learned

    October 3, 2018 in Iceland ⋅ 🌧 4 °C

    So went to Hvolsvollur to see another museum, this one about the “Sagas” the old stories about the settling of Iceland...you guess it too was closed. The exhibition about volcanoes and earthquakes was open. But suddenly our car won’t lock! Between that and the entrance fee of $32.00 each we thought we understand enough about geology and we wanted to spend our money on hot cocoa and coffee. The car started locking again, so we came to this little church, Oddi. While this church hasn’t been here that long (1920). The location was home to one of the first churches in Iceland. It was also home in 1078 to Seamundur the Learned, who studied in France at Sorbonne to become a priest. OK, it’s raining and I have time to read.Read more
