Human Story

Guðríður Þorbjarnardóttir


Guðríður-Þorbjarnardóttir-Silvia-Tomarchio-Photography-Iceland

I’m not one much for tours although sometimes it’s the only way given circumstances, on and off the bus, I was getting a little tired, then the bus driver shared a story about this extraordinary woman, Guðríður Þorbjarnardóttir (980-1050), who was born in 980 here at Laugarbrekka at Hellnar. In her lifetime she went on 8 sea-voyages and travelled twice over the whole of Europe!  She is believed to have been the most widely travelled woman of the Middle Ages. Very inspiring, I thought I better go check her out, I’d like to believe in I lived in Iceland in her time, we’d be mates, Yeah um, don’t ask me to pronounce her name for you.
