I heartily endorse this product and/or service.

A bit more seriously: Auður is a great guide (and a very nice person!), and her blog is an amazing resource for anyone considering visiting Iceland. If you're thinking of going there, read her posts and not only you will be convinced to go, you'll also know about lots of places most tourists wouldn't normally visit. And, of course, her tour of Reykjavík is incredibly informative; do it on the first day you're there if you can.

I was sad that I only learned about this during my stay in Iceland -- but most of my stay wasn't in Rekyjavik anyways, and I'm sure I'll go back sometime.

The Lego movie is absurdly funny and enjoyable, but now I can't get that song out of my head.

Very quotable, too. "Come with me if you want to not die" almost made me laugh out loud inside an airplane.

Introduction
I graduated in Computer Science from UFRGS (in Porto Alegre, Brazil) many moons ago. After that I worked from 1993 to 2004 for the company that eventually became Terra Networks Brazil, in Mountain View (1994-1997) and Porto Alegre. I then moved to Australia in 2004, worked for Melbourne Uni until 2010 and now work for Google in Sydney.
