Guestbook comments from the manager
At Berjaholt we found an oasis of overwhelming beauty.We loved every minute of it and didn't want to leave. The wonderful details of how you have decorated the cottage make for a vey cozy home away from home.
Your music selection is exquisite and the shelves are stocked with wonderful books.
We love the landscape , and bathing in the hot springs in Hveragerdi was one of the highlights of our stay.
We were also quite taken by the sound of your language,and we found a poem by Bill Holm that captures this beautifully. We hope to come back another year to explore more of your beautiful country.
Lenny and Scott
" In an air conditioned room you cannot understand the grammar of this language.
The wiffing machine drowns out the soft vowels.
But you can hear these vowels in the mountain wind, and in the heavy seas breaking over the hull of a small boat.
Old ladies can wind their long hair in this language.
And can hum ,and knit, and make pancakes.
But you cannot have a coctail party in this language
.And say witty things standing up with a drink in your hand
You must sit down to speak this language. It is so heavy that you can't be polite or chatter in it.
For once you have begun a sentence , the whole course of your life is laid out before you " .
