Jordi runs a Spanish blog about Iceland, and he has been in Iceland for a while, going on four years! In this time, he has noticed a few things about the Icelanders, cultural habits that mark their interactions with each other. So he whipped up this little list. If you want to put yourself in the shoes of the Icelanders, these ten habits will get you off on the right start!

Leaving the heating on and opening the windows
People don’t lock their doors in Iceland, and energy is so cheap that if you need to change out the air a little, people just open their windows. The heating is never off! People even leave their car keys in their ignitions! It is also customary to leave baby strollers (including baby) out on the balcony even when it’s snowing!
