Journeys to Envy: The Saga Steads of Iceland

One or two of my colleagues in Australia will make fun of me for this (as I am more or less always going on about Iceland), but I am deeply jealous of my friend Emily Lethbridge, who soon begins a year-long pilgrimage of the saga steads of Iceland, that is, the sites from Iceland's medieval saga literature. It's a journey I have often dreamed of making, and which I suppose over the years I have been collating in parts.

Good luck to Emily! Her blog about the coming travels can be found here, and a conference paper that I have written about literary tourism in Iceland is available here.
