Only a few days until I go to Iceland !

I have finally booked a ticket to go home to Iceland. I am playing an acoustic gig there with an Icelandic rock star called Bubbi, we are quite different artists so it should be interesting. He has written some great songs in his career and I am trying to pick one to add to my set. I was struggling to find a flight to Iceland for a reasonable price, because it is......... a) the middle of the tourist season, b) short notice ,c ) not the best time to pay for things in Icelandic krona's. So it wasn't looking great. I did hope that I would find the end of the rainbow where they keep all the gold, but that sadly hasn't happened yet. But I spoke to a very nice lady at Icelandair UK and she gave me a special banjo player discount ( it was looking more and more likely I would have to go on my own and I promise you, no one needs to hear my banjo solo's ).

So I want to say thank you to for sorting out Mr Banjoman's flight.

Email from " The Human Spider "

Yes I am telling the truth ! This morning I got an email from Alain Robert, aka Spiderman.
And guess what he has listened to Kongulo many times and really likes it, says that he is very happy with the lyrics I wrote about him. How cool is that.

So Spiderman likes my Spiderman song.
