Chocolate easter eggs in Iceland

YEY it has been easter. I’m fatter than ever! In Iceland the easter eggs are totally made out of chocolate. That’s a new thing for me who is costumed to the paper eggs in Sweden. Well, inside the eggs we also have a lot of pieces of candy, but these ones were extreme. But I cannot complain because it was really yummy! 🙂

Another funny thing is that you get a small piece of paper that is enclosed to your easter egg. On the scrap of paper it is then said a saying or a quote. Mine was:

“Væru engir örðugleikar til í heiminum, hefðu menn ekki ánægju af að sigra þá”.
In English that means “If there weren’t any obstacles in life, men wouldn’t need to struggle to overcome them”.

It is really telling for me I guess! 🙂 I love it at least! We need to be tested, this is when we show our talents and skills and develop as humans.

    It sounds better that way: If there weren’t any obstacles in life, men wouldn’t have the joy/pleasure of beating them. Kommer du pa lördag? Glöm inte att ta med Snapphanar i sa fall…
