I don't know. I never really started going muh heritage until reaching 4chan.
I always saw myself as regular Portuguese since I was a kid.
My favorite language is Swedish but moving from Portugal to Sweden would be a downgrade.
I feel your pain... This could be a great country, almost utopic but everyone is a dumbfuck and those who aren't are incredibly arrogant. There is no hope for us here so i agree with you. Let's get the fuck out of here...
I think that Norway would be more interesting since i'm a nature and mountain freak
How old are you, OP?
"A person acquires Icelandic citizenship at birth if:
the mother is an Icelandic citizen; or
the father is an Icelandic citizen and married to the mother (except in cases where the couple were separated at the time the child was conceived)."
"An Icelandic citizen born outside Iceland is liable to lose Icelandic citizenship upon turning age 22 unless:
he or she has taken up residence in Iceland before that time; or
an application is made to retain Icelandic citizenship (renunciation of foreign citizenship is not required)."
Portugal is the definition of wasted potential.
I like it still. Western Europe after all.
Unfortunately I visited Sweden.
It's the country. It's the people. Fuck. That. My fellow countryman can be retarded sometimes but they're not Swedish tier retarded.
It's weird to say the least.
They gave me two Portuguese names. Random shit. A first name and a surname.
Hugo Sousa. Then they added autism of the 3rd degree. Hugo Sousa Helguson because of my mother. G E N I U S.
23. Too late?
>Portugal is the definition of wasted potential.
Couldn't agree more. However, i don't see if there will be a chance ever. It's not too bad of course but it could be way better.
One thing that annoys me is the lack of effort that people\governement applies to culture... Despite the boom of indie bands and music festivals that happened this last 5\6 years there are still many things that are disregarded such as literature, comics, alternative sports, etc...
Also I heard that swedes are seriously arrogant and naive at the same time. Is it true?
Portugal pre crisis was bretty guud. Smaller version of Spain. I loved living here until the crisis.
>Also I heard that swedes are seriously arrogant and naive at the same time. Is it true?
A little naive. Didn't strike as arrogant though.
Seu rabeta , volta par ao teu cubo de gelo, nao mereces o vinho do porto e queijo de s. jorge. Nao mereces esta terra, mar etc Os teus pais podem ficar. Mas tu volta seu preto da neve, meteste me nojo
>23. Too late?
It seems so. I would try contacting the Icelandic consulate in Lisbon (or if there's one closer to you) and talk to them if there's anything they can do for you.
That's a matronym, is your mother a raging feminist and your dad a huge pussy? Why didn't they use your father's name?
Last time you said you were half faroese you lying fuck.
>Eu vivo no glorioso norte de Portugal.
Acho muito bem. Eu sou de Guimarães logo tenho o status de mega português inerente à minha pessoa.
E agora amigo, vais ter de postar o teu cartão de cidadão onde tem escrito Hegulson para comprovares que não és um Troll
>That's a matronym, is your mother a raging feminist and your dad a huge pussy? Why didn't they use your father's name?
They both got out of Iceland in their 20's in the 70's. They were from what I saw from the pics massive wannabe hippies. So at this point, I don't even know.
>Enjoy sunshine and wine, brother
ahah, nice meme amigo
your parents sound like horrible people with an awful taste in wine and fish
komdu heim bróðir
OP are you sure you'd like to live in Iceland?
It is one small and isolated island.
You just admited that in order to experience happiness in Portugal the only option is to get yourself shitfaced and i must say, i couldn't agree more. That's why i get absolutely drunk at weekends
Aye, I haven't gone a week since late august without getting shitfaced at least once

Stop memeing, Finland.
Are there many happenings. Theft, assault, or are the people mostly sane? Because they sure aren't in Germany. I imagine it to be a calm country.

>Icelanders are all American and polish rape babies
I swear every norwegian online just talks about how Iceland and norway should become one
Landser is fun.
You should start blasting this song from your phone next time you get into trouble with the slavs. Don't forget to ask where the fuckin ammunition is.
Don't mind me, just posting this song I kept hearing on the radio over the summer and has been forever stuck in my head
Well, someone's got to keep up tradition.
hey, it's not my fault they played a lot of music in english
I listened to the radio for hours every day for 12 days; I would estimate only 1/3rd of the songs were in Icelandic
You've done goofed, Portuslensk.
My parents were almost exactly the same. You know what I did? I actually learned the language of the old land. I'm moving out soon.
There's just no fucking excuse not to learn the language of "muh heritage" as it may apply to each person if you are at odds with the country that you were born in.
It isn't too late. But get off your ass and do something.
Most of the time, unless I was near Reykjavík or Akeyuri, only one or two of the Rás stations would come in
One thing I noticed was Iceland has a big mix of car brands. American, European, and Asian brands can all be found in Iceland. That's pretty unique to have such a healthy mix.
I even spotted this woodie in Ísafjörður
What's your "old land"?
I support your decision t.bh, but I wouldn't idolize the other country while completely despising the country you were born. Argentina, too, has its perks. And you might be deluding yourself deeply (I hope that's not the case, but I've seen that happen more than often).
not talking to OP, but usually a sign of autism here is anyone that talks about going to finland because "muh quiet culture and cold weather"
usually means they are losers without girls lol

>And I'm going Icelandic retard with Hugoson?Or Portuguese retard with 6 names.
Iceland actually has a list of approved names, but fortunately (I guess?) Hugo is one of them. You probably wouldn't be able to name your son with 6 names, tho.
You could also use one of the Icelandic variants, like Hugi or Hugin. Huginsson doesn't look that bad, imho.
That's another thing I noticed; the big trucks ("superjeep" sounds like a specific touristy word) usually were either Asian brands or Landrovers
When I was in mainland Europe I saw significantly less American car brands
You're not kidding. The husband of some lady who owned a guesthouse I stayed at drove pic related in his small town; I was pretty happy to see it.
Portugal pls, we are not Sweden, our SD equivelant is already in government and are busy saving the country by following Denmark's footsteps.
Germany - although I may have to take a detour to England first for a job offer.
I used to be like that when I was a kid. Thinking other places might be perfect. Now, I don't care if there's other trouble out there. Problems are a fact of life. I just want to have DIFFERENT problems in a DIFFERENT place, with DIFFERENT people, that's all. I have slowly but surely come to hate everything here excepting the food, and if I stay here I'll just end up killing myself because I can't stand it.
Something that matters is that here, there's no place that you can visit. You're far away from everything and anything. In Europe you can visit lots of interesting countries. And if you want to travel far away, it's "closer" because it's not the same thing to pay for the tickets with Pesos than Euros or Pounds.
Argentina is so far away from everything it may as well be an island. Drives me mad. It's a cage. Maybe I can explore different cages at least.
I want to come back and spend some time roaming the highlands in a big truck.
The highlands were beautiful; from the tiny glimpse of them that I did see, it was easily the most beautiful part of the trip
No it's real, 3 major newspapers reporting here, even the greens want refugees out.
When these 20(ish) point reforms went through the left oposition actually backed it to the shock of practically everyone, when the christian democrats in government backed out, ending with a 90% pro majority.

lmao, I know exactly that feeling, and to me that's one of the things that matters the most. I used to (and to some extent still do) dream about taking a train and some hours later finding myself in a completely different country, full of culture and historical stuff(another thing that we don't exactly find here).
Have you travelled through your country, though? I assume it must not exactly be cheap, but at least it's not as far away. I'm actually thinking about visiting Tierra del Fuego, as it looks like a really nice place and some kind of "poorman's Scandinavia/Alps" (although I'm being quite unjust with Patagonia here, as it seems as good as Scandinavian fjords and such).
Depends on how old the Landy is. They've been in British military service since the late 1940's because they're rugged, cheap, easy to maintain and quite reliable. Anything in the 80's made by British Leyland is awful though (Avoid things from the 70's-80's period).
Older ones are used by people who don't give a shit, like farmers. Can't comment much on newer ones, I've known a lot of people who own newer Landy's and I've not heard big complaints like that.
A little bit.
Argentina has hardly any trains, so getting anywhere is a bit of a pain in the ass and expensive. That's why many people go to places like Brazil instead, it ends up costing about the same, so they might as well see a different country.
It feels like my country is just "Buenos Aires" instead of Argentina - just because travelling and getting around is so awkward. Tierra del Fuego might as well be another country altogether.
Besides, sometimes when you travel if you have a Buenos Aires accent people treat you like complete shit. This is because most Buenos Aires people are extremely conceited, and the culture can sometimes be so different as to clash. Is it the same in Brazil?

Correlates with harsher winters
OP you better have the balls to go though some cold weather
After the holidays it's just not fun anymore
Well, the harshness I'm talking about is more derived from the length of winter
During winter I basically don't see daylight because I'm sitting in a classroom during daytime
it's like it's 4ever dark man
Yes, you should do that. Even I do it during the winter months. It is vastly absorbed through the sun, important for the immune system and general well-being. Not expensive either.
Not enough. I hadn't been taking my D3 this winter and really felt "off"
Starting supplementing again in high doses and snapped right back to normal mode
Btw Nordics used to counter this effect by eating a ton of fish and fermented cod liver oil, and ofc getting more sun during summers as well
>Is it the same in Brazil?
Not exactly. People from the city of São Paulo do have a similar reputation (of being snobbish and such), but they mostly are treated well. People will probably just make some jokes (we do that with everyone tho) and that's it.
It does help that, as big as São Paulo is, it still doesn't "monopolize" the country's economy as much as BsAs do.

Even Boston is colder. You guys got off pretty lucky.
Also Noi Sirius is the best chocolate I've had hands-down, congratulations.
>your parents didn't immigrate to southern europe before you were born
>you live in a country where it's currently -10 and buried in rock-hard snow
I take a 5000IU tab daily in summer too but most people who bother using it buy some garbage low-potency pills they sell at the supermarkets.
For some insane unknown (to me) reason the officials have even gradually lowered the "official recommended" amount to only 10% of what it was a hundred years ago.
