It came to my attention recently that a lot of bloggers have something in common… no views from Greenland. I am ecstatic over all the overseas views I have gotten, but Greenland is such a big country I want to have it light up pretty colors on my map.
I honestly don’t know much about Greenland. According to Google it is populated, but not by many (56,171) compared to its mass (836,300 square miles). The little town I live in is a higher population than that and I am in the middle of Iowa with the farm fields everywhere.
I did learn that most of that population is along coastlines, but with the nation being mostly ice I am sure they are not the tropical coastlines many dream about. Lots of beautiful pictures of the nation on Google as well. I found this one of some green land around the houses.
I know my Grandmother raved about her trip to Alaska… maybe someday I should travel to Greenland to see the Northern Lights. I do find it interesting how we complain and gripe about the cold and snow and they live surrounded by ice and seem to have a very rich culture.
My theory is this; if I take the time to learn a little about Greenland maybe that country will light up for me. And if not, I will still be just a little bit wiser about the world. So, go Google Greenland and marvel at its beauties, you can become wiser too!
