... Arnarsson set sail for Iceland (which was already known about from other Vikings who had set sail there). From his boat he threw his wooden seat pillars (a mark of his being a chieftain) and decided that he would settle wherever they hit land.

Even though it was the most beat-up car we've ever rented, it served us well. On our list of must-do's in ...
