In today’s world, we often find ourselves bridging gaps. Gaps between different generations, diverse groups, and cultures. In Bryndis’ tale of Gudridur Porbjarnardottir she has a conversations with her grandson Porgeir, an illustration of this theme as the generations discuss the meeting of different worlds in Gudridur’s travels. This story demonstrates the importance of mutual understanding and tolerance. We are not all the same and we shouldn’t all be the same. But we can make the effort to understand one another. The story further illuminates Gudridur as a mother and grandmother and depicts her adventurous life which has been an inspiration to many generations of Icelandic women and girls. It was pleasure to read and I hope you think so too. – Katrin Jakobsdottir, Prime Minister of Iceland.
